Workington Town’s oldest sponsor, Myers & Bowman, is set to continue as the club’s main backer in 2020.

The Lillyhall car dealership stepped up to become the club’s new main sponsor last season and the fruitful partnership has now been extended for next season.

The company celebrated 100 years in business this year and is looking forward to a bright future working together with the Derwent Park club.

Town chairman Les Smallwood said: “Myers and Bowman have been a big part of Town’s history for 70 years – almost as long as we’ve been in existence as a club.

“Stephen is a big Town fan but an astute businessman.

“We’re glad that the profile of Myers and Bowman Toyota is enhanced through our media reach.

“As a club we’re very active on social media with regular, interesting content for our significant following.

“We are able to incorporate Stephen’s company aims with our club aims and the partnership works very well.

“We’d like to thank Stephen and his company for their enduring support.

“To have a local company with a global brand as main sponsor is an ideal situation for us as a club and we look forward to our continued relationship for many years to come.”

Stephen Calvin, managing director of Myers & Bowman, added: “We go back to the Challenge Cup days, so some 70 years.

“We have a long association with the club.

“Toyota likes to have a community project.

“We’ve had families connected with Workington Town looking at cars over generations.

“We look forward to a good pre-season and hopefully we can steer clear of injuries as we welcome some key injured players back.”

The Toyota dealership has sponsored many players as well, including Carl Forber, Fuifui Moimoi and Jarrad Stack and in return has seen increased footfall through the showroom and garage and a strong reputation in the community.
