AJ Engineering has become the new strip sponsor of the local football team.

The company has given its support to Forres Mechanics Football Club by sponsoring their home and away kits which will be worn for the first time at Mosset Park in their first Highland League match against Strathspey Thistle this Saturday. (July 29)

Alan James, managing director said: “Whilst AJ Engineering has carried out projects as far afield as Antarctica and all over the UK, we still very much think of ourselves as being a local company and therefore it is only right that when we can, we throw our support to our town. The chance to be the kit sponsor for the Forres Mechanics came up and we were delighted to get involved. We wish the team all the best for the season ahead.”

Graham Alexander, general manager and director of AJ Engineering added: “We are thrilled to be supporting our local team and the Highland league with this new sponsorship deal. The kits look great, and with this fresh new look and sponsor, we hope Forres Mechanics will have a fantastic season on the pitch whilst we continue to develop a strong and continuing partnership off the pitch.”

David MacKintosh, chairman of Forres Mechanics said: “We want to give a big thank you to AJ Engineering for becoming the sponsor of our kits. They look great. It’s fabulous to have a local company, supporting our local team. AJ Engineering is a company that has grown and expanded over time, but its still very community and town minded and gets involved in many events and initiatives locally. Forres Mechanics are proud that we have formed this partnership and we plan to do the town and AJE proud this season.”

Speaking ahead of the match against Strathspeys Thistle, manager Steven MacDonald added: “We are in good shape. We are a young team but the boys have been working hard over the last few weeks and months and there is plenty of enthusiasm. We are more experienced than we were last season. We are looking forward to the season opener against Strathspey Thistle. Every game is tough, and the pressure is on us to win next week’s game.”
