Lowestoft Town have announce an agreement with Galloper Wind Farm who will become one of the club’s new commercial partners for the 2017/18 season.

Galloper Wind Farm is an offshore wind farm project, currently being constructed 30km off the coast of Suffolk.

The Blues’ commercial manager Sam Hossack said: “Galloper is coordinating the offshore construction of the wind farm from their base at the Port of Lowestoft.

“There’s a tremendous amount of activity ongoing from there and we felt it made sense to start talks about how we might be able to work with each other in partnership. Galloper were very happy to come on board as one of our new commercial partners here at Lowestoft Town FC for the 2017/18.

“We are very pleased to welcome them to our growing list of sponsors and look forward to what the future holds.”

Colin Christian, general site manager, at the Galloper project added: “We’re proud to have become partners with Lowestoft Town Football Club and look forward to enjoying some match visits over the coming months. The club has a long history in the area, stretching over a 100 years, and continues to do excellent work with young people and the community.

“Given our strong ties with Lowestoft due to our offshore construction base being in the town, we are pleased to be able to support the club and the excellent work they do.”

Meanwhile it has been confirmed that the Blues will be competing in the The National League U19 Alliance next season.

Lowestoft have been placed in Division C alongside AFC Sudbury, Barking, Bishop’s Stortford, Boreham Wood Whites, Brentwood Town, Brightlingsea Regent, Ipswich Wonders, Maldon & Tipree and Norwich City. The first fixtures will take place on Wednesday, September 13.

Home matches at the Amber Dew Events Stadium will be taking place on Wednesday afternoons with 2pm kick offs.

Season ticket holders will be able to support the young Trawler Boys with no extra cost. Supporters who do not hold season tickets will be able to buy tickets on the gate.
