Halfway St. Anthony’s toasting new partnership with The Kirkhill Bar

Our new amateur side Halfway St. Anthony’s have negotiated a deal with local pub The Kirkhill Bar to be their new home strip sponsor for their inaugural season. The friendly local is a popular venue in Cadoc Street in Cambuslang and is under new management after Emma Barnes took over the license. Emma and the team are delighted to be Halfway St. Anthony’s first ever sponsor. “It’s a Great opportunity to support a local team and to be their first ever sponsor is something we are proud of”. Wishing the team well Emma is looking forward to showing you some Kirkhill Bar hospitality in the coming weeks and month “Good luck for the season & I look forward to welcoming you all Into The Kirkhill Bar”.

Halfway Ants manager James Cairney thanked Emma for agreeing to partner with the team as he looks to build a good squad for his first season under the Ants umbrella. “I spoke to Emma about what it is we are trying to do with Halfway Ants and she was as excited with the plans as I was when we first spoke about the team being set up midway thru last year. It’s a great wee pub and we hope that the partnership is beneficial for both of us” James then turned his attention to the coming season “I’m really looking forward to getting started with the Halfway Ants and we are hopefully building a squad that can compete, and also provide players for the 1st team in the West of Scotland Football League”.

Ants club secretary Martin McKenna echo’d James’ thoughts on the partnership and added that it’s partnerships like this that are vital to clubs and helping them grow “We felt that with the community spirit we are trying to build at the club and Emma looking to do the same with the pub that it was a great fit for us as a partnership. Investment in our clubs from local businesses is vital to seeing the team grow and hopefully bring some success to the local community be it on or off the park”. Speaking about the inaugural Halfway Ants season Martin continued “We’ve never had an amateur team before and it’s something that we felt could plug the gaps between the 20s and the first team as well as give us a wider catchment area for players that we can bring through the pathway. I’ve known Jim a long time and his passion for the game and his desire to see his players make the step up to the first team is second to none. Hopefully we will see a Halfway Ant or two pushing for the first team this season, that would be ideal”
