A club statement confirmed: “Jones and Co have agreed a substantial sponsorship deal for the home shirts and tracksuits.”

“This is a major coup for the Badgers in our preparations for the new season, and we are delighted to have Jones and Co on board as our major sponsor.”

The away kit will be sponsored by Holdsworth Foods, a company based in Markham Vale in Chesterfield.
