Mortgage Express has become Barnet’s sponsor for the side’s centenary Underhill season.

Mortgage Express have appeared on the back of Barnet shirts for a decade but now they have raised their sponsorship levels in the club and will now become the Bees’ main club sponsor and will thus appear on the front of Barnet shirts in a three-year deal believed to be valued at £200,000 which is a major coup for the club in helping out financially.

Chairman Tony Kleanthous told Barnet’s official website he was delighted with Mortgage Express’ increased funding into the club: ‘It shows that we are an attractive club for national companies to sponsor.

‘This sponsorship strengthens the relationship between us. We are proud to continue this long term association.’

Mortgage Express representative Paul Mitchell said: ‘We are really looking forward to developing the partnership with Barnet FC.’

The Mortgage Express logo will, most notably, appear on the fron of Barnet shirts and will be on parade in Saturday’s annual friendly against Arsenal before a special shirt celebrating Barnet’s 100 years at Underhill Stadium is released and will be first worn by players in the match against Crystal Palace.
