Traditional Builders Merchants sponsors football club steeped with Heritage

We here at Builders Merchant Company pride ourselves on being local, reliable and most of all traditional - which is why we are proud and honoured to sponsor the North Ferriby Football Club, which has been running since 1919, a little over 100 years!


We are into our second year of sponsorship of this amazing club which produced players like Dean Windass, who is now a Hull City Legend! with the future looking bright for the current roster of players.


The club is run entirely by volunteers whose passion fuels the team forward, much like BMCo and its staff whose passion for the trade and expertise within the Builders Merchant industry has made us one of the largest supplier of building materials in North Lincolnshire and Yorkshire with branches in Scunthorpe, Hull, Goole and Rotherham.


The club has risen through some hard times, reforming twice and going on to the finals for the FA Vase cup in 1997 and the FA Trophy finals in 2015, held in the Wembley Arena. The club has pulled together during COVID-19 and pushed through to be bigger and better than before, relying on their community spirit and remarkable volunteers.


“We feel incredibly proud to support a local team and have our name associated with a club steeped in so much history. They have fantastic supporters of the local community and provide a wide rage of opportunities for their people to shine. They share in our core values of local, reliable and traditional and we could not be more thrilled.” added Duncan Thomson, MD, Builders Merchant Company.


North Ferriby club Chairman Les Hare commented: “I am absolutely thrilled that Duncan has again come to the fore for this football club. We are a ‘not for profit’ community club providing opportunities to over 200 youngsters as well as Ladies, Intermediate, Reserve and Senior team players. Funding in these difficult times is hard to come by, so BMC’s continued sponsorship couldn’t be more appreciated.”


This year the club’s village community has organised a heritage open day on September 21st 2020 , so people can have a look into its history and successes through time, while valuing the effort and strength of their volunteers.
