PLATINUM Scaffolding of Burrowfield, Welwyn GC, are among our new sponsors.
The Platinum company based for the past three years in Burrowfield, WGC, are the people responsible for the impressive new terracing at the clubhouse end of the ground.
The family-owned and run firm of Tony and Denise Larkin are much more used to erecting scaffolding on roofs and construction sites around the South-East, but says MD Tony: "Erecting a football club terrace was very rare work for us. It took around four days for us to put up and we very much hope that the fans of WGC FC get good use out of it.''
The Larkin family are all football supporters, but it's Championship side Queens Park Rangers that gets their support.
"On a local level, we very much hope Welwyn GC FC have a good season. We've been based in the town for three years now and want the local football club to do well. We know chairman Olly Croft and members of the club committee well and will give our support, whenever possible.
Prior to moving to WGC, Platinum Scaffolding were previously Enfield based, but north London's loss is definitely Welwyn GC FC's gain.
