Boston Town will rename Tattershall Road the DWB Stadium - after agreeing the biggest sponsorship deal in the club’s history.

As the Poachers prepare to celebrate their 50th anniversary this August, chairman Mick Vines welcomed the new deal with DWB Timber Engineering, stating that it would secure the club’s financial future.

And there is more good news for the club.

As well as signing the fixed period contract with DWB, Town have also signed a new lease on their ground.

“There are two fantastic pieces of news for Boston Town,” said a delighted Vines.

“The club has been somewhat in the doldrums over the past couple of years.

“The uncertainty over the future of the new ground didn’t help, but now we’ve ironed out all the legal details and signed a new lease, we can really look forward to exciting times ahead.”

Although Vines is keeping the figures of the new deal close to his chest, he added: “We’re thrilled to have DWB on board.

“It’s by far the biggest sponsorship deal in the club’s history and puts us on a much better financial footing and secures the club’s future for quite some time.

“Nathan Collins (manager) has also really improved results on the pitch, so things are looking much rosier all round.”

Founded in 1986, DWB Timber Engineering supplies engineered timber products to the building industry and has design and fabrication plants in Essex, South Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

Steve Pinner, managing director of DWB in Boston, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Boston Town FC, with the ground lease now secured, the club can drive forward with its plans and proudly develop a facility to be enjoyed not just by the football club, but the town and the people of Boston too.

“We see exciting times ahead for the club and we are delighted that we can be a part of that.”

The Poachers have signed a new 20-year lease on their ground.

However, that will be backdated to 2011, meaning the club still has 17 years on its present agreement.
