Don't know the answer to that, but the other week, I was chatting about it with my daughter, and neither of knew what CK Beckett does. We looked it up. I still can't remember now. Is it scrap metal?
Mr Kipling, cash plus pastries !
Ye they scrap metal merchants between Shafton and Royston . Only knew because I looked them up when they started sponsoring the disabled stand etc.
That’s why I was wondering with them being local if they had any interest because of the sponsor .
I don’t think they’ll have done it for publicity for the buisness though because they were massive reds fans and it’ll have given them a buzz sponsoring them as it would have done me if I were ever in a position to do same .
*cough* tax deductible *splutter*
They are and were big fans, in all seriousness. Kev Beckett is no longer with us of course.
As for new sponsor, I think the big bucks come from the betting organisations. Whilst I understand some will have moral issues with this, I certainly don’t. Kids size shirts won’t carry the sponsor if this is the case by the way.
bet365 have a fair few clubs already so could be possible. Can’t be SkyBet as they are league sponsor; so I’m thinking possibly a Far East based one, Chien Lee, even though Americanised, will have contacts.
Or maybe Paddy Power? They are a massive company, could be looking to reach further out to football? You never know
Big Thing anybody ?
I had heard Bet 365 as well, but can't remember who told me.
Can see more and more betting companies choosing to put money into shirt sponsorship and the like. Now that they have agreed to not show adverts pre match/half time during sporting events at some point, they will want to make the lack of awareness up somewhere...

If this was the case - then they should put Barnsley Hospice on kids shirts or another local charity etc.
Very good idea, like that.
You leave me out of it .
Good idea , on the back of the shorts .
