Whilst Gary Johnson’s men are turning on the style out on the pitch, Torquay United AFC would like to pay tribute to a number of long-standing sponsors that continue to support the club off the field.

Here, Mark Bowen of MB Insolvency tells a bit more about his special relationship with The Gulls, with his passion for the club dating all the way back to his childhood visits to Plainmoor…

How did you first get involved with Torquay United?

I attended games with my grandfather, uncles and cousins during my childhood, as they lived in Torquay and I maintained a interest in the club since then. In 2005, I started attending games as my work life had brought me back to the area and I have continued ever since. I first became involved in supporting as a sponsor in 2008 when MB Insolvency commenced, and as my friendships in and around the club had developed.

The club and its management and staff (playing and non-playing) has been actively positive toward my business and therefore it started as, and has continued to be a very, healthy partnership.

What are the advantages of being involved with Torbay’s only professional sporting team?

The advantages are the social aspects that the club brings to the community (I have made many new friends at games over the years) both on a personal and professional level. From a sponsorship perspective the exposure is excellent.
