The club announced 32Red as a new “principal partner” this morning. The gambling website were the club’s kit sponsor between 2006 and 2008, and will now return to the front of the claret and blue shirt.

It is a very small bit of good news that means we at least have some additional money coming in through the deal. Whether it will put a dent in what need to balance the books, it’s doubtful.
