Structured Communications Managing Director and Crawley Town supporter, Chris Dale, told the club’s website: “The whole team at Structured Communications are excited and very proud to have confirmed this partnership with Crawley Town FC. “We are looking forward to bringing our children to watch The Reds and supporting the football club in the seasons to come.”
“We feel honoured to have taken over the naming rights to the South Stand, and we must pay tribute to the late Bruce Winfield for what he has done for Crawley Town Football Club. We must also thank Bruce’s wife, Silpa Winfield, for without her blessing this could not have happened.”
