Nailers managing director, David Laughlin added, “We have been delighted with the relationship we’ve had with Silver X over the past season and we must thank Gavin and his colleagues for all that they have done for the club, which had an immense positive impact at a time when we were in a difficult financial position.
“But the baton has now been handed to Raygar and we are delighted to have Ray and his colleagues on board with us as we strive to improve the club and our facilities.
“We are delighted that Raygar have agreed to accompany us on our journey as we aim to progress the club on and off the field.”
