Already the strips have been bringing good luck to the team - who scooped the FA Vase Cup last year at Wembley Stadium - and who are currently top of the Northern Premier League First Division North.
Alisha Henry, South Shields FC’s commercial manager, said; “We’re absolutely delighted that Jennings Ford Direct has decided to support the club for another season.
“After the fantastic achievement at Wembley last year, energy and enthusiasm is still running high amongst team players at the club, and the strips have certainly added to this, with progress and development becoming even stronger.”
Both South Shields Football Club and Jennings Motor Group share a long established history in the North East. The club – in several different forms - has history dating back to 1888, and spent time in the Football League between 1919 and 1930.
Jennings was one of the first main Ford dealers in the UK to be appointed by Ford Motor Company to sell its cars in 1917. The motor dealer group is renowned in the motor industry for its multi-award winning customer service, in addition to having a loyal customer and staff database.
David Walker, general sales manager at Jennings Ford Direct, said; “We were delighted to hear about the club winning the silverware at Wembley last season, it was fantastic news not only for the club, but also for the entire North East.
“Once again, it’s a pleasure to be able to support them with another set of strips - let’s hope they bring some more silverware to South Shields.”
Jennings Ford Direct sells quality approved used vehicles, delivered direct from the manufacturer, as well as offering a number of aftersales facilities, including service, MOT and parts. For further information call 0333 414 9750.
