Darvel FC scores extension to QTS sponsorship deal

June 2021

Senior football team, Darvel FC, has secured a continuation of its sponsorship from rail supremos, QTS Group for another two years.

QTS has agreed to extend its sponsorship as the lead shirt sponsor of Darvel for the next two seasons, taking the partnership to an overall three-year deal.

The rail contractor, who was unveiled as the club’s main sponsor in 2020, has a strong history of supporting local charities and sports teams, and currently runs a youth athlete programme which supports 13 athletes from across the UK, including three from Kilmarnock. QTS also had a successful run sponsoring Kilmarnock FC and Derby County.

QTS Managing Director, Alan McLeish said:

“We kicked off our sponsorship of Darvel with such high hopes last season but sadly COVID19 put a bit of a damper on it.

“We never really got to properly enjoy being the main sponsor, so we’re looking forward to the players getting the opportunity over the next two seasons to get out and play some great football wearing the QTS logo.”

John Gall, owner of Darvel FC and Managing Director of Brownings the Bakers, home of the famous Kilmarnock Pie, said:

“As a club, we are hugely grateful for the continued support and commitment from QTS. They are a fantastic local business to be associated with and the new strips with their branding have gone down a storm with the fans.

“We have invested heavily in the club through lockdown, with a new pitch, new lighting and we’ve brought some great talent into the team. It’s been a lot of work, but it’s been worth it and we are very much looking forward to a successful season ahead!”

Darvel FC is part of the new proposed West of Scotland League (WoSL) which lies in the Pyramid structure meaning Darvel FC are now a Senior Club which sit at Tier 6.
