Having been at the club for 12 years, the level of professionalism continues to improve year on year helped by the sponsorship that we’re attracting. These are exciting times for the Wanderers and we’re very grateful to everyone at Churchill for their support.”
Craig’s Mum, Susan Strachan, is Secretary of the Wanderers and also works for Churchill as the company’s Buyer. She added: “Our family’s love affair with the Wanderers stretches 12 years. It’s great to see our employer, Churchill, also get involved.”
