DAFC ANNOUNCE NEW SHIRT SPONSORDate: Saturday, 4th Jun 2005
Dunfermline Athletic F.C. are delighted to announce that The Purvis Group, based in Lochgelly, Fife, have agreed to be Dunfermline Athletic’s shirt sponsor for Season 2005/6.
John Yorkston, Chairman of Dunfermline Athletic explained, “ We are delighted that the Purvis group have come on board as our main shirt Sponsor. To receive such a high level of commitment from a local company such as Purvis is excellent and even better it is a company based in the original home town of our very own Jim Leishman. The Purvis Group have in the past shown their commitment to the club via advertising, hospitality and also subsidising one of our scouts costs but this really takes our relationship to that next level.”
Craig Purvis, from The Purvis Group said “ As we enter our 25th year of operation we know that we have come a long way since Bob and Ella Purvis set up Robert Purvis Plant Hire in Lochgelly on the 1st of August 1980. One thing is known by all at the Purvis Group that the growth of the company to its current size of 350 employees and 8 companies is due to the hard work, dedication and loyalty of all our staff past and present.
The decision to become DAFC shirt sponsors for next season seemed an ideal way to mark our 25th anniversary and of course to help us grow our business yet further.
