AIRBUS UK Broughton have brokered a major new shirt sponsorship deal with Gardner Aerospace, one of Europe’s largest suppliers of aerospace detailed parts, sub-assemblies and total manufacturing services.
The arrangement will bring substantial additional income to the Wingmakers, who will wear the Gardner logo on the front of both their home and away shirts.
"I am delighted we have concluded a deal with Gardner Aerospace for them to replace Airbus UK as shirt sponsors," says Airbus UK commercial manager Chris Doran.
"What is fantastic with this deal is not only do we get significant investment, but we also bring in as a director of the club Gary Slinger, who has extensive knowledge from his time as a director at Accrington Stanley."
It would also be remiss of me not to thank Airbus for allowing the opportunity to resell this much-coveted sponsorship package.

"It is massively important that we continue to grow the commercial side of the club in order to remain competitive at the top of the Welsh Premier League."
Airbus wore their new home shirt for the first time on Saturday in a 1-1 draw with league leaders The New Saints and will wear the new away strip at Bangor on Tuesday.
Gardner has five aerospace-approved manufacturing operations in the UK, including one in Broughton adjacent to the Airbus plant and the Hollingsworth Group Stadium, and has annual revenues in excess of £105 million.
