    Paintmaster 2000 Ltd & Whaley Bridge AFC    



From September 2010 Paintmaster 2000 Ltd became the Principle Sponsor of Whaley Bridge AFC, The Hope Valley Football League & Derbyshire.Divisional Champions. 

The new senior kit was unveiled 0n Oct 6th, 2010.

Steve Rampley & Darryl Hall accept the new kit from Garry & daughter Alisha.

Garry seems to have aged somewhat whereas Steve doesn't look a day older than on the photo right!



MD Garry Dignan needs no introduction; ex-Whaley player Garry played alongside the then player manager Steve Rampley and some of the current Committee in the late 80’s and early 90’s.  A period of transition for Whaley and Garry, having played semi-pro before moving to Whaley, soon became a prolific scorer in an exciting young team which introduced youngsters like Nez Longden and Jon Brogden.  It was to start Whaley’s rise from 'also rans' to become a constant force in the HVFL’s top division and Garry always gets a kick out of the old 'black and white' newspaper cutting now archived in the Gallery; if you look closely at the cutting you can see that the sponsor in those days was Southside Paints which was subsequently rebranded to became Paintmaster.

Paintmaster have in recent seasons sponsored Buxton FC, and continues to do so to a lesser extent, but Garry has now decided “to put something back into the Club” where he finished his playing career and into the town he made his home some 20 odd years ago.  Garry has indicated that he would like to get involved and be more hands on and WBAFC welcome him back and hope to make this a exciting long term association.
