Shepherd to sponsor Third Lanark Football Festival
Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has been appointed as the main tournament sponsor of the Third Lanark AFC Football Festival on 2nd June 2018.
The first football tournament to be hosted by the club since 1967, the event is a major element of Third Lanark’s rebirth and a key milestone on its journey to rebuild this historic club.
The tournament will involve the participation of 12 under-16s teams while a mini-festival will include Third Lanark’s youngest squad of six-year-olds. The event will also feature Third Lanark’s league-winning amateur team in friendly action as part of the club’s celebrations.
David Donnachie, Associate at Shepherd Chartered Surveyor’s East Kilbride office, said: “We are delighted to sponsor this grassroots football festival which will see the participation of over 200 children, with some 300 friends and family in attendance to lend their support, with teams drawn from Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, Glasgow and Central Scotland. Everything is gearing up to be a terrific day.”
Gary Beresford, Third Lanark AFC Team Secretary, added: “We are very pleased to secure Shepherd Chartered Surveyors as our main tournament sponsor. We have ambitious plans to expand the club significantly over the coming months and Shepherd’s support will go a long way to helping us realise our goals.”
Third Lanark AFC has 15 registered players and play/train out of East Kilbride at under-16 level. It also has over 24 registered amateur players and a squad of younger kids aged just six years old.
