Bray Wanderers have formed a new partnership with Shoreline Leisure that will offer players free membership to their facilities on the Southern Cross Road.
The new sponsorship deal is estimated to be worth €40,000 over a five year period to the Airtricity Premier Division outfit.
As part of the deal, players will have access to the centre’s state-of-the art facilities, which include hi-tech gyms and weight rooms, sports halls and fitness classes. The squad will also be able to use the centre’s swimming pool, to help them recover after matches.
Wanderers’ manager, Alan Matthews, is excited by the deal and believes it will improve performances on the pitch. Speaking about the deal he said that fans will see the benefits of the new deal on the pitch.
“Myself and the players are really excited by this deal and are very grateful for the help and support given to us by Shoreline we are delighted to have formed an alliance with them.
Strength and conditioning is now an integral part of player development and has become a very important facet of the game. The state-of-the-art gym facilities at Shoreline will help players develop strength, speed and endurance and therefore allow them to make the most of their ability”.
Shoreline Leisure Bray manager, Kevin Kelly, is also excited by the deal and is looking forward to the prospect of working with the players.
“These are exciting times at Bray Wanderers and we’re thrilled to be able to play our part by getting involved and supporting the team – it’s great to think that we have a role to play in the success of the Seagulls!”
