Doonan Gives Wildcats New Year Boost - 03/01/07

WEYMOUTH Wildcats have secured their main team sponsor for 2007. Harold Doonan (Building Materials) Ltd sponsored the Wildcats last year and will continue as main team sponsors for the forthcoming season. The team will be known as the Weymouth Doonan Wildcats and are delighted to be maintaining their association with the local building material suppliers.

Chairman Phil Bartlett said: “We are thrilled to have them back on board. Harold Doonan, proprietor of Doonans is a Wildcats’ fan through and through and has already given a great deal to the club not only financially but has provided building materials for the track over the years.”

Harold Doonan, who has been a supporter since the Scorchers era added: “Speedway is a great family sport and I have been a Weymouth speedway fan right from the club’s inception back in 1954. Phil Bartlett and the directors of Weymouth Wildcats Ltd have worked very hard to keep speedway alive in the town and now that full planning permission has been granted the future looks a lot brighter. I am thrilled to be sponsoring the Wildcats for what promises to be an exciting 2007 season. I sponsored the Wildcats last season and was very impressed with the new set-up and although speedway is my passion, I am also a businessman and the sponsorship package I received last season provided value for money and gave fantastic exposure for my company.”

Wildcats’ commercial director Robin Spicer has been working hard behind the scenes in preparation for the 2007 season. “We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the new year having Harold Doonan back on board. “Our marketing and commercial team have devised several sponsorship packages for next season suiting all budgets, four of the five directors of Weymouth Wildcats Ltd run their own businesses so we asked ourselves ‘what we would we want from a sponsorship package?’ “With Doonan continuing their financial support of Weymouth Wildcats it seems the hard work is already paying off.”
