Established in 1882, Burgess Hill Football Club was a founder member of the Sussex County Football Association. Known locally as the ‘Hillians’ the club attained the unique achievement of winning the Sussex Senior Cup three years running, resulting in permanently retaining the silver wear. The club continues to grow on and off the pitch venturing on to Step 3 of the Non-League pyramid this season.

The sponsorship funding from Covers will include the provision of new perimeter boards at their home ground - The Green Elephants Stadium - and funds towards producing the club’s match day programmes.

Russ Rego, Club Committee and Commercial Manager of Burgess Hill Football Club, commented:

“We’re delighted that Covers will be sponsoring Burgess Hill FC in 2016. Their support is very much appreciated.”

Terry Lace, Burgess Hill Depot Manager, commented: “We’re very proud to be supporting Burgess Hill FC and we hope that our funding helps to inspire the team and encourage other community backing. At Covers we have a great love of football and we look forward to being involved in the future success of Burgess Hill FC.”
