AN ILKESTON-BASED football team has secured its first ever corporate sponsors.

Managed by Matt Taylor, Needlemakers Arms FC, who play in the Long Eaton Sunday League Division Three, have been based in the town for 23 years but were previously known as Erewash Hotel.

Having now changed name and base, they’ve also brought on board local building firm Clive Webster Builders whose names now adorn the team’s shirts.
