Macklin Motors Glasgow Central Nissan is extending its sponsorship of Partick Thistle FC to include the academy team.

The dealership has pledged to support the youth team for two years, providing them with new strips for the upcoming seasons.

Chris McKenzie (pictured centre), general manager of Macklin Motors Glasgow Central Nissan, said: “Partick Thistle is a club which has historical roots in the area and it has been supporting the next generation of footballers for a number of years so it was a very easy decision to continue our partnership.

“As a business, it is very important to us to support generations to come in fulfilling their dreams whether it be with us in the motor retail industry or in partner organisations like Partick Thistle who share similar values to our business.

“I am looking forward to catching up with the team throughout the season and wish them the best for their upcoming games!”

The dealership is located five minutes away from The Energy Check stadium, the home of Partick Thistle FC. It has given the club ongoing support for three years.

Gerry Britton, Partick Thistle chief executive, said: “We’re very grateful for Macklin Motors Glasgow Central Nissan’s continued support, not only for the development team, but for the whole club.

“We have partnered with the dealership for several years now and are proud to be working with a business like Macklin Motors which supports the local community in developing young talent.”
