Introducing… Andrew Jinks

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to yourself, in my short time of being with Shildon AFC I have realized how much of a vital role the club and all of their partners play in the local and extended community, each is as important as each other and I think it’s vital that we continue to support one and other in any way shape or form, particularly in these difficult times that we are living through.My task is to create more bespoke partnership opportunities for all of our partners to enhance the value of each sponsorship for both parties.

I know how important it is that both parties give something a little more than sponsorship. I am confident that we can offer you not only a bespoke package either as an organisation or as a life long fan but in addition the opportunity to contribute to our Academy and the creation of opportunities and support that the Club is providing to all sections of our community some of which represent the most vulnerable

I have worked on a matchday sponsor package which will be offered to all partners over the year, this will include entry ground and the new hospitality suite, within the suite, we can cater for a two-course meal for a table of ten and a fully stocked fridge throughout the game, the suite will have a game viewing area and will be showing live scores on our TV from 3pm- 5pm.

We will also be offering a breakfast partner package that will include a group of partners who will be present a few times over the year, in this meeting there will be an opportunity to discuss cross-promotion and business opportunities

I hope to meet all of our partners in the near future and get to know each individual, together as a community we have the opportunity to come out of Covid-19 together, helping each other to grow.

I will be in touch over the coming weeks to have a chat with you but if there’s any issues that you would like to discuss in the meantime please hesitate to call or email

Thanks Andrew Jinks – Shildon AFC partnership manager and football development officer.
