STIRLING ALBION RETURN TO FORTHBANK
Approaching the end of the second year of the home of Stirling Albion FC being DoubleTree Dunblane Stadium, courtesy of the generous sponsorship of DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro,, Stirling Albion FC are set to return to Forthbank Stadium.
The DoubleTree by Hilton sponsorship was originally for a one year period only but both parties agreed to a year’s extension. The outcome of recent discussions between the Club and the General Manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro, Robert Glashan, was a mutual agreement that it was time to change direction.
Stuart Brown, SAFC’s Operations Director, said:
“We enjoy a fantastic relationship with Robert [Glashan] and his staff could not have been more helpful. Our two flagship events – the Billy Bremner Memorial and Annfield Revisited Dinners – were superbly handled by the Hotel and very successful for the Club. Both parties are in full agreement that it was the right time to move on and I would like to thank everyone at the DoubleTree Dunblane Hydro for the support and friendship extended to SAFC over the past couple of years.
“Looking ahead, I am delighted to be able to report that the Club is close to finalising the detail on a couple of new and lucrative sponsorship and partnership initiatives, with several more in the pipeline. Whilst there is never a time for complacency in running a business, particularly a football club, I’m able to confirm that, through the hard work of the Club Executive throughout the last 12 months, we have established a firm foundation to build on and that we are heading in the right direction.”
On behalf of DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro, Robert Glashan commented:
“We would like to extend sincere thanks for all the hard work and effort that both parties have shown in the last two years and wish Stirling Albion Football Club a successful and prosperous future. It has been great working with everyone at the club and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their professionalism, friendship, drive and enthusiasm. Hopefully, we may have the opportunity to work together again in years to come.”
