The Board of Directors is currently undertaking a review of the Club’s administrative and commercial operations including staffing structures and allocation of duties. As a first outcome of this review Eddie Drury has been appointed as the club’s Commercial Director. Eddie is anxious to involve as many people as possible in not only promoting Glenavon within the local community but also in the key area of fundraising.
Eddie explains further: “There is no doubt that during his tenure at the club Gary Hamilton, helped by the backing of the supporters and Directors, has done a fantastic job, attracting quality players, securing two Irish Cup triumphs plus European qualification three seasons in a row. To help give Gary every chance of building on this success in the future we need everyone in the local community and beyond to help in any way they can.
“There are a range of ways people and businesses can become involved: Mourneview Needs You, Club Lottery, match day sponsorship, signage around the ground, shirt sponsorship etc. There is also the opportunity over the coming months to subscribe to Mega Draw 2 with its range of fantastic prizes. I would therefore appeal to local businesses, supporters and, indeed, anyone with a love for Glenavon to get in touch and see how they can best help. An example would be match, ball or man of the match sponsorship. If you feel this may be too expensive then why not get together with a number of friends and enjoy that famous MVP hospitality? A match sponsor, for example, is currently required for our opening Danske Bank home fixture against Carrick Rangers on 6th August.”
Eddie also plans to establish a dedicated fundraising team. If you are interested in joining this team, or helping the club in other ways, Eddie can be contacted on 07866273306 or speak to him on any match day.
Once the review has been completed any further changes going forward will be announced by the website.
