March Town have toasted a new three-year sponsorship deal.
The backing of Exning-based insurance company Hugo Wright was announced at the club’s annual meeting on Tuesday night.
Former March first-team skipper, and current 2nds player, Nigel Wright is one of the directors of the firm along with partner Michelle Hugo.
Tyler Phillips will continue in his role of captain of the club’s first-team in the Cambs & Hunts Premier League this summer.
March received a reprieve from Whiting & Partners Division One relegation due to champions Kettering leaving the league to play in Leicestershire.
Phillips’ younger brother, Brandon, will also take on a captaincy role in 2018 by skippering the Sunday side who play in Division Two of the Rutland League.
The club’s committee is now made up of Les Mills (chairman), Graham Smart (vice-chairman), Bill Crumly, Sarah Lemmon Ian Liversedge, Nick Lowe, Linda Kirby, Gary Nicholls, Chris Ringham, Harry Vaheesan and John West.
