Local company backs revitalised football club

December 13, 2018

Revived local football club, Dunbar Athletic has received a sponsorship boost from local company Tarmac.

Following hard work to raise funds by local football enthusiasts, Dunbar Athletic Football Club has relaunched this season, after a few challenging years. Club members Scott Purves, Stuart Laing and John Baptie spearheaded a campaign to secure local support and this is where Tarmac’s Dunbar Cement Plant stepped in. As part of its commitment to support local community projects, the company has donated funds to purchase team tracksuits.

Scott explains: “Finance is always a problem for small community clubs like ours. We worked hard to get the team back up and running again to provide amateur football for the town of Dunbar. Without financial help form local companies like Tarmac, we and other clubs would not survive. We are very grateful that they have helped us achieve our goal to get Dunbar Athletic up and running again.”

Tarmac’s Dunbar Cement Plant Manager Oliver Curtin says: “Local sports clubs offer vital community hubs, but they rely on enthusiastic volunteers and fundraising to keep them going. We were pleased to be able to be support the comeback season for Dunbar Athletic footballers.”

The Club currently has about 20 amateur footballers within the squad and is competing very well in league and cup competitions.
