“Our partnership with The People’s Pension will be much more than a sponsorship deal.

Chief executive officer of The People’s Pension Patrick Heath-Lay said: “We can’t wait to kick-off the new season with Crawley Town.

“As a local employer it’s important to us to be an active part of the community, supporting issues and activities that make a real difference locally. “Through our partnership with Crawley Town we will continue this support both directly at the club and in wider local initiatives.”
