COMMERCIAL Old Boys have received a new sponsored strip, kindly provided by Andrew Dent .

The veterans’ side are pictured in the kit, with manager Tony Bannister, Andrew Dent, captain John Whittaker, and Dave Blacklock of Colne FC, where the Old Boys play their home games.

Commercial, to show their thanks to Colne, have also taken out an advertising board at the Reds’ XLCR Stadium.

The side were in action on Sunday, when they narrowly went down 1-0 to Old Rochdalians, who were losing finalists in the Umbro Over 40s Masters competition last season.

Their next game is a tasty local derby at Barden a week on Sunday, when they travel to face a Burnley Miners team expected to include the likes of Kiko Rodriguez and Tony Black.

l COLNE FC’s game at Flixton on Saturday was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

They will look to return to action tomorrow in the league at Alsager Town.
