Barrow Chairman Paul Hornby has revealed his delight after his accountancy firm JF Hornby & Co renewed their shirt sponsorship deal with The Bluebirds for a sixth year in succession.

The Club’s new kit, unveiled earlier on Friday, proudly sports the logo of the firm, twice named UK Accountants of the Year, on the front of the First Team shirt.

With Season Ticket sales set to hit four-figures, Mark Cooper’s men are preparing for a return to pre-season training and a second season in League Two following a historic promotion in 2020.

“The association between JF Hornby and Barrow AFC is very special to me and the wider team at Hornby’s,” said Hornby, who is Managing Director of the firm.

“Our support for the Club predates my involvement as Chairman by a number of years, and the reasons we got involved back in 2016 are the same reasons we have chosen to continue our relationship.

“Barrow is a Club with a fantastic and proud history and is at the heart of its community. It has a loyal band of supporters, volunteers and a growing number of staff members who give everything they have to ensure its success both on and off the pitch.

“There have been some exciting developments in the close season period and I’m very much looking forward to seeing the team line up from August with the JF Hornby & Co logo on their shirts.”

The Club’s new Commercial Manager, Jamie Stoddart, has welcomed the renewal of the shirt sponsorship deal and has admitted he is looking forward to working closely with the company in the years ahead.

“Our sponsors are so important to us; their commitment contributes to the ongoing success of the Club. In JF Hornby & Co, we have a loyal local business that has been with us over the last five years and has now signalled its further commitment to the Club.

“We’re delighted to once again have the logo of this fantastic, family-owned business on the front of our shirts and so pleased that our collective association continues.”
