Silks Darwin are proud to announce they are the new jersey sponsor for Wanderers Football Club.

Chief executive Brad Morgan said he was excited to build a strong relationship with such a long-standing Darwin club.

“Silks Darwin is very much the new kid on the block compared to Wanderers Football Club but age aside, we’re very proud to be supporting such a great club who has teams in both the men’s and women’s competitions,” he said.

“Supporting the community who support us is central to our beliefs here at Silks Darwin and we are very proud to support such a great club.”

Wanderers Football Club president Jerome Cubillo said sponsorship was critical for the club’s day-to-day operations.

“We can’t operate without our sponsors – it’s as simple as that,” he said.

“With a sponsor like Silks involved with the club, it means we have a new place to meet as a club and celebrate our wins but also hold seasonal functions.

“Both organisations are family-friendly so that’s something we’re glad to have in a sponsor of our club.

“We’re very excited for what’s promising to be a big season of NTFL here in Darwin.”
