JDP (John Davidson Pipes), a leading provider of high-quality drainage and water management solutions, together with JFC Civils, their key partner in twinwall drainage, is pleased to announce its partnership with Gretna Football Club, becoming one of its main sponsors.
This collaborative effort represents a powerful synergy between a local business and a beloved sports team, fostering a strong sense of community and shared values. The Gretna Football Team, deeply rooted in the heart of the Longtown community, holds a special place with JDP’s head office in Longtown, Carlisle and the overall heritage of JDP.
With the original Football Club founded in 1946, Gretna football has a rich history and a remarkable journey that has captured the hearts of many. With its close proximity to the JDP Head Office in Longtown, the team has become an integral part of the local culture and identity. Through its involvement with the Gretna FC 2008, JDP seeks to strengthen its connection with the community while actively contributing to the growth and success of the team.
Speaking about the sponsorship deal, Tom House, Head of Commercial at JDP, said:
"We are thrilled to become one of the main sponsors of Gretna FC 2008. As a local business, we recognise the importance of supporting and celebrating initiatives that are deeply ingrained in the fabric of our community. The Gretna history and achievements resonate with our own values of determination, teamwork, and excellence, and we are proud to help support them to future success.”
Stuart Holmes of Gretna FC 2008 added:
“Gretna Football has undergone a huge phase of growth with over 200 kids playing in a youth section for boys and girls. There is also an over 35’s team, walking football, and the senior side is competing in the hugely competitive Scottish Lowland League.
The club has also been working very closely with Raydale Community Sport, and, as a result, the town can be proud of one of the best 3G sports arenas in the area. Raydale Community Sports Hub is used by dozens of local groups each week, bringing thousands of people through its doors.”
This sponsorship deal marks a significant milestone in the ongoing partnership between JDP and Gretna FC 2008 with both sharing a commitment to making a positive impact in the region, and this collaboration further underscores their dedication to enhancing the local sporting landscape.
JDP looks forward to a bright future alongside the Gretna Football Team and is excited to witness the team's continued growth and success both on and off the field.
