Bedeck is to continue its longstanding commercial association with Glenavon. The news follows the announcement that Avondale Foods (Craigavon) Ltd. will be the club’s new “front of jersey” sponsor.

Gary Irwin, Bedeck’s joint Managing Director, said:

“After 27 years, Bedeck and the Irwin family are pleased to welcome Avondale Foods as Glenavon’s main corporate sponsor. There are too many highs to start to list, but needless-to-say we wouldn’t have missed any of it. Seeing the players run out with the Bedeck name on the shirts was an absolute thrill. It is not goodbye because we remain shareholders, associate sponsors and, most importantly of all, proud supporters of our club.”

The Bedeck sponsorship is one of the longest in the history of Irish League football.

Gary Irwin and Adrian Teer shake hands on the first Bedeck sponsorship agreement in 1993.
