That’s because businesses are backing Bognor in record numbers as the club continues to make great strides in attracting commercial partnerships.

And for the first time the pitch side advertising boards at the MKM Arena have completely sold out, thanks to the efforts of hard-working Dave Robinson.

Look around Nyewood Lane and you’ll only see a few spaces, a rare sight at our level of the game – and these have all been sold and are awaiting artwork. Mind you, Dave is keen to reiterate that there are still plenty of opportunities for companies to support the club.

He said: “This is the first time we have completely sold out of pitch side advertising and we are delighted that so many companies have made this possible and obviously thank them for their backing.

“It’s another indication that we are going in the right direction; raising revenues helps massively with what we want to achieve on the pitch and supporters can rest assured we will continue to put in more hard work to bring in even more sponsorship for the club. We have other advertising opportunities around the ground that will help raise the profile of businesses, so please get in touch.”

Rocks commercial director Russ Chander says Dave deserves a lot of credit for his diligent work behind the scenes at the club. He added: “Like many of our volunteers, Dave does an excellent job in engaging with current and future partners to showcase the opportunities that our club can provide for them.

“I’ve seen first-hand just how much effort Dave puts in to this area alongside his other contributions and the fact that we have now, for the first time in the club’s history, filled every pitch side space is some achievement and one that few other clubs at our level have achieved.

“This milestone, along with other recent commercial initiatives, demonstrates the continued progress the club is making in engaging with the wider business community. This is hugely important for the long-term sustainability of the club and we are massively grateful to all of the businesses and individuals that have seen the value in partnering with Bognor Regis Town FC.

“We are continuing to look at further initiatives to add value to our current business partners and enable new businesses and charities to engage with us.”
