THEY are the global giants who are playing a part in putting Big Ben back together.

Now scaffolding production leader Layher will help put the building blocks in place at Newmains United.

The Victoria Park side have secured a sponsorship deal with the highly respected German company, who have a base in Livingston.

Layher have provided state-of-the-art support structures for major projects around the world including the £61 million development of Westminster Tower’s iconic clock.

Now UK managing director Sean Pike hopes to play a part in getting Newmains ticking on and off the park after agreeing to sponsor the club’s tracksuits.

He said: “After we were told about the work going on at Newmains by our area sales manager Mark Bisset we were immediately keen to get involved with the club.

“At Layher we are very much about the personal touch and working with the community and so are Newmains.

“It seemed to us they are doing things differently too and Layher also like to think outside the box a little bit.

“We are very much looking forward to working in tandem with the club over the next 12 months and hope we can help them achieve success on and off the pitch.”

The investment is the latest boost for the West League Two club, which has been dramatically revamped in recent months.

Newmains chairman Stuart MacKenzie is delighted to have such a distinguished company on board.

He said: “Make no mistake, we have a massive organisation working with us now.

“Layher are a well-respected and diverse company who have been behind a lot of the major construction work around the planet.

“To have them supporting us is something we appreciate and we are excited about what we can achieve together.

“We won’t take their investment for granted and we are very much looking forward to working with and learning from them.”

Bisset – also Newmains’ first team coach – added: “Having worked for Layher I know what the company is about.

“Their philosophy is very much aligned with the outlook at Newmains and so I believe this agreement will work well for everyone.”
