Newly-promoted Carlisle City have announced a new stadium naming sponsorship deal.

The Northern League Division One new boys have agreed terms with a Cumbria-based firm that will see their Gillford Park ground renamed.

It will now be known as the Three Rivers Health and Safety Consultancy Stadium.

The company, who are based at Warwick Mill as well as having bases in the north east, have already sponsored non-league clubs.

And club bosses said they were delighted to have them on board as City prepare for life in a higher division.

"We are delighted, so soon after ending a successful season, to be able to share this news," said club chairman Brian Hall.

"We are convinced this sponsorship agreement will be a positive move for both parties."

City's commercial manager Simon Kenyon added that he hoped it would be the start of a "long-term partnership" with Three Rivers.

The firm has offices in Carlisle and Hartlepool and provide training and consultancy services across various sectors.

They said they have been keen to increase their footprint in the north west and described the stadium naming deal as a "logical move" after attending recent City games and meeting club officials.

City dramatically won the Northern League Division Two title on the last day of the 2021/22 season.

Jim Nichols' side also won the Cumberland Cup.
