Specsavers has committed to a renewed sponsorship deal with Glenrothes Football Club for another year which will help to cover the running costs of its junior team.

Gary Wood, store director of Specsavers in Glenrothes, said: 'We are delighted to announce we will continue to support our fantastic local football club and specifically, its junior team.

'With this year being especially tough for lots of people including businesses and local community groups, backing the fantastic amenities our town has to offer is more important than ever.'

Extra special committment

Jamie Mellenis at Glenrothes Football Club added: 'Specsavers has been a longstanding sponsor of our club and we are pleased to have agreed on a deal with our local opticians again for the next year.

'As with many sectors, 2020 has been very challenging for grassroots football clubs and we’ve missed having our fans cheering us on during matches which makes a commitment like this extra special.'
