News: Lilleker Bros Ltd score with Blades deal


Rotherham-based electrical and mechanical contracting business, Lilleker Bros Ltd, is the new sponsor of Sheffield United's first team training and warm-up kit.

The Moorgate-headquartered firm has had a relationship with the League One club over many decades.

The company, established in 1919, trades throughout the UK and internationally. Its links with the Blades include the installation of the five lattice tower floodlights – a feature of Bramall Lane many years ago – and the electrical work associated with the construction of the South Stand and new Kop.

Mark Ralton, director of Lilleker Bros Ltd (pictured, front right), said: "This is a proud moment for Lilleker Bros Ltd to see our name and brand on the training kit. For many years we've had a great relationship with United which continues to this day where we are the official club electrical contractor."

The sponsorship is a 12 month agreement with an option to extend.

Paul Reeves, head of commercial at Sheffield United (pictured, front left), said: "This is another new and positive commercial relationship with a business that has supported the Blades for many years. The branding looks great on the training kit and I am sure that Lilleker Bros will benefit as a business from this high profile partnership with Sheffield United."

Lilleker Bros employ 80 staff, shop floor and site workers. The company also has a switchgear and control panel manufacturing facility at Waleswood.
