City sign new sponsorship deal
Ollie Snaith fits the bill as the type of player required at Cambridge City, according to boss Robbie Nightingale.
The 20-year-old midfielder joined from Needham Market and made his debut in the 2-0 defeat to Basingstoke.
And Nightingale said: “Ollie will be a very good addition to our group. He is local, he is passionate and he’s got plenty of desire, and they are the sort of players we need in the club.
“He is somebody we’re really pleased to have, and to jump out of a promotion chase speaks volumes for the lad.
“To be able to play for Cambridge City is quite big for him so we’re pleased he has come in and he will add really good quality to the group.”
But Matty Stevens has left City to go on loan from parent club Peterborough to Sligo Rovers.
“It’s a good move to the Irish Premier League,” said Nightingale.
“He used it (the City loan) to get himself match fit and he has helped us.
“It’s the good thing with the loan system as it helps us and helps others get to where they need to be.”
City have agreed a sponsorship deal with Morgan Sindall.
The construction and infrastructure company will sponsor the first-team tracksuits for the rest of this season, with the option to extend for the 2017/18 campaign.
“I am delighted that we have added Morgan Sindall to our sponsorship portfolio at the club,” said Cambridge City chairman Kevin Satchell.
“They have a long association in the Cambridge area, and with their office located in Sawston it is even more significant given that it is close to the site of our new ground.
“It highlights how keen we are to engage with the local community as we prepare to move to the new stadium. I would also like to thank City fan Gill Wordingham for her help in negotiating the deal for the club.”
Bob Ensch, the area director at Morgan Sindall, who sponsored City’s under-13 girls’ team in 2008, said: “We’re so pleased to have been selected to sponsor Cambridge City Football Club.
“We have an extensive roster of projects throughout the Cambridge area and community engagement and responsibility is of great importance to us. Cambridge City Football Club is an outstanding team and we wish them the very best of luck for future games.”
