King's Lynn Stars unveil the name of news sponsor ahead of 2020 Premiership season
The King’s Lynn Stars are thrilled to welcome Minors and Brady Estate Agents as their new main team sponsor.
The Norfolk outfit will now be known as the Minors and Brady Stars with preparations well underway for the latest Premiership campaign.
Minors and Brady are award-winning estate agents which was founded by Jamie Minors and Alex Brady.
They have both worked their way up from being trainee negotiators to running their own company with three offices across Norfolk.
And for co-owner Alex Brady it really is a ‘dream come true’ to become team sponsor of the club he has supported since he was a child.
He said: “I am a huge fan of speedway and I have been coming to Lynn since I was five-years-old.
“I went out to eight of the ten Speedway Grand Prix’s last year and we also sponsored Ty Proctor in 2019 – I would class him as a good friend.
“I have known Buster (Chapman) for number of years – I did a Power Slide class when I was 15 and then I dealt with him through work last year, and that is really how this all came about.
“It really is a privilege to be asked to be team sponsor because I have spent so many years watching Lynn and you see companies like Poultec sponsoring them, but you always dream that one day it could be you.
“I love the sport and I want to help it grow again, gaining exposure so like I say, it really is a privilege.”
King’s Lynn owner Keith Chapman is delighted with the new partnership.
“I am very pleased to have Minors and Brady as our new team sponsor this year and I would like to welcome them to the club,” he said
“I know that Alex has been coming to watch the Stars for many years and he really has the club’s best interests at heart.
“Hopefully we can help them going forward as much as they’re helping us as a club.
“We like to have support from local businesses and the fact that they’re a Norfolk-based company is really good for the area and it is good for everyone involved.
“I think it is brilliant how they have grown as a company in the last couple of years and not only that, they have also gone from being a sponsor for one of our riders to now being our team sponsor which is great for everyone.
“Minors and Brady is a company that is growing and with the partnership that we now have, we can hopefully grow with them and take King’s Lynn on to bigger and better things.”
The Stars will launch the new season with their annual press and practice on Monday, March 16, at the Adrian Flux Arena.
Gates will then open for fans at 6pm with riders out on track between 6.30pm and 8pm, followed by a question-and-answer session between 8.30pm and 9pm in Champs Bar.
Season tickets are available ahead of the new season and represent great value at £270 for adults, £240 concessions and £150 for 16-17 year-olds.
