Daisy Hill have announced a partnership with their local Co-op store in Westhoughton, which will see the store supporting the club by sponsoring the match programme and undertaking fundraising activities.

The club has been awarded a Co-op community donation of £250, and staff at the store on Market Street in Westhoughton have also been raising additional money through events they have organised themselves.

Store Manager Nicola Craine and Co-op Member Pioneer Elsa Parker attended Daisy Hill's game against Nelson last Saturday to present a cheque for £300 to the club.

Daisy Hill Chairman Graham Follows said:  "We are delighted that the Co-op and the staff at the Westhoughton store have offered to help us.

"Having the backing of a well known local business like the Co-Op is a big boost for us, and going forward, we are looking forward to working with the staff at the store and welcoming them at our home games".

Elsa Parker added:  "Community is at the heart of our business, so it's important for us to support local groups who are bringing people together to do great things.

"We're proud to support Daisy Hill Football Club with a community donation, which will help cover the cost of producing their match programmes for the season.

"This club is steeped in local history, with Daisy Hill first hosting football in the 1894-5 season, so it's brilliant that this club is playing matches to this day in the North West Counties Football League.

"At the Nelson game we attended there were around 70 spectators, not bad for a dull mid-November afternoon.  It's clear to see this club is much loved by the passionate locals shouting "Come on Daisy!" on the sidelines.

"Westhoughton Co-op colleagues are pleased to be getting to know the club and we are looking forward to a successful season together".
