Barrow Clark sponsor the club again
Barrow Clark Furnishers have reignited an old partnership and sponsored Braunton Football Club, presenting the men’s first team with a brand new football kit.
The partnership was sparked by former Braunton Goalkeeper Chris Egner’s Facebook post of a youth team photograph from some 21 years ago which was sponsored by Barrow Clark Furnishers, with the current director featured as a player. Braunton FC First Team Manager Mark Harris spoke with Rob Barrow and offered the opportunity for Barrow Clark to sponsor the club again.
This season, Braunton have a record 25 teams across different age groups, including four senior men’s teams, 17 junior teams, a women’s team and three girls’ teams. That means more than 400 players from five to 55 years old.
Rob Barrow of Barrow Clark Furnishers said: “My father Chris Barrow sponsored the club when based in Braunton, and I personally have played many seasons for the club.
“Braunton FC and the Village itself are close to our family and business over generations. Barrow Clark Furnishers originated from Braunton and it just felt right giving something back to the club that does so much for so many families”.
First Team coach Mark Harris said: “Braunton FC is a growing club and it is great to get the backing of Barrow Clark Furnishers.”
