New Mills AFC have launched an innovative raffle that aims to find a club and shirt sponsor for the upcoming 2014/15 campaign.

The sponsorship package is valued at around £3,000 and will be raffled to local businesses for just £40 for each entry.

Millers’ chairman Ray Coverley says the scheme is a way of accommodating local businesses.

He said: “For years we were somewhat spoilt by having Princess Cruises as a sponsor, but the reality is that New Mills is a small town and the financial climate is still difficult.

“We believe this competition will help local businesses get behind the club and it has been priced very competitively to ensure it is affordable.

“We are asking every supporter to contact one local business each and so hopefully it will be a great success.”

Entry forms are available to download from the club’s website.
