Landmark kit deal sees St Mirren women and youth teams play in same strips as men
Digby Brown Solicitors is delighted to announce that its second year as kit sponsors for St Mirren Football Club will see the women’s and youth teams wear the same strips as the men.
The landmark deal, thought to be the first time in top flight Scottish football history, will see every football player for the Paisley club wear the same logo on their home and away jerseys in the 2022/23 season.
The amazing news can now be confirmed as the firm moves into the second year of its two-year deal with the club.
Fraser Oliver, Chief Executive of Digby Brown Solicitors, believes the new deal reflects and builds on the strong community values shared with the club and sets the tone for working together in the next season.
He said: “As the fans know, our partnership with St Mirren all happened very quickly and delighted as we still are, we always wanted to help with more than just first team shirts.
“At Digby Brown our people work hard and work well but more importantly, we all know we are part of one team.
“We believe St Mirren players deserve that same feeling of belonging – and we think that starts with recognition.
“We are therefore delighted that as we extend our partnership with St Mirren until the end of the 2022/23 season, we can provide youth academies, female squads and the first team with the same strips – ensuring all players are unified as one team, playing under the same banner to the same fans with the same recognition.”
Tony Fitzpatrick, Chief Executive of St Mirren Football Club, added:
“Digby Brown have been fantastic partners for St Mirren since coming on board with us at the beginning of the season.
"Digby Brown’s company values strongly align with our own and we are delighted to have them with us again next season.
“We are really excited for this partnership to progress into its second year with full support, not just for the first team, but the women’s and academy teams also in what is believed to be a first in top-flight Scottish football.
“Whether it’s first team, women’s, or academy, we are all St Mirren and we are thankful to Digby Brown for their continued support of the club.”
