In addition to Saltire’s involvement with the senior squads, they are also going to support all of our youth development teams which of course are where many first team stars of the future can currently be found.

“I am a long-standing fan of the club and admire the way they perform both on and off the pitch. AFC’s significant involvement in the community is also reflective of Saltire Energy’s commitment to the local area. When we heard that there was an opportunity to become the official sponsor for AFC we were keen to take over this prestigious title and strengthen our involvement with the club.

“AFC is steeped in tradition and we are proud to be associated with the club and see the Saltire Energy brand on the new kit, which looks great. This is such an exciting time for AFC – I am really looking forward to watching the club’s run of success continue into next season and beyond.”
