The club has recently celebrated the completion of the Mick George Stands at the Pro Edge Westwood Road stadium, which were undertaken as part of the club’s groundsharing deal with Cambridge City.

Saints were given six weeks to get their ground up to Evo-Stik League Southern, Premier Division status, with new seated and standing stands required.

After discussion and consultation with Mick George, they mobilised materials, services and technical expertise to help the club achieve the status in a tight time frame.

St Ives Town’s commercial director Mark Taylor said: “The club will be eternally grateful to all the staff at Mick George Ltd for all their support, technical input and expertise in enabling this to happen which is so important to the club’s progression.

“Without this it would not have been possible. Their service, quality and professionalism is first class allied to such friendly and ‘can do’ people.

“Mick George Ltd have been a fantastic supporter and partner of the club for many years and it is a real testament to the business that it has always retained its ethos of helping so many community projects, causes and sports clubs while growing into such a powerhouse company across the region.

“Our relationship continues to develop to different levels with various initiatives and ideas being looked at.

“We are very proud to have Mick George Ltd as a partner for our new scholarship programme.”

Gary Woodcock, head of concrete at Mick George, said: “We’re extremely pleased that we were able to help St Ives Town upgrade their ground.

“Supporters of St Ives Town will now be able to watch games in the comfort and shelter of the new Mick George Stands.

“We pride ourselves on being a local business that engages on a local level and we continue to support many local charities, local events and local sporting clubs like St Ives Town.

“Our involvement can range from providing financial support right through to supplying materials for ground improvements.”
