The Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium

Digger Blogger | 09:59, Mon October 14 2013

I am delighted to report that Selby Town, currently mid table in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Division 1, has found a new sponsor in the shape of Fairfax Plant Hire.

The deal includes stadium naming rights. While the Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium may not have quite the same ring as the Maracanã or the Bernabéu, it’s no worse a name than the Etihad, Emirates or DW. And at £7,000 for a four-year deal, a lot cheaper too (although perhaps rather less TV coverage - for the time being, at least).

As for the stadium itself… well, as you can see from the photos here, it is a long way from Premier league status. After last season’s relegation, let’s hope that Fairfax’s generous support can dig the Robins out of their financial wobbles, help build a brighter future, and put them back into the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier League, where they belong.
