Quote:
During this period, the South Stand, affectionately named the Bruce Winfield Stand, at the Checkatrade.com Stadium will be renamed, with the blessing of the Winfield family, as the 'Structured Communications Stand'.



Structured Communications Managing Director and Crawley Town supporter, Chris Dale, said: “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.”



Structured Communications are a solutions provider within the communications sector, offering state-of-the-art VoIP (voice over internet protocol), fixed telephone lines, structured cabling and broadband connectivity.



Founded by a young team of highly experienced technical staff with over 50 years of telecommunications experience between them, they pride themselves on a high level of service and product quality.



Chris added: “The Structured Communications team are always looking for ways to make a positive impact in the community, which is why we are committed to supporting Crawley Town for the next two and a half years.”



Chief Executive, Michael Dunford said: “We’re delighted to have secured an agreement with Structured Communications for the next two and a half years to sponsor the South Stand.



“Whilst the South Stand has been affectionately associated with the memory of Bruce Winfield for the last four years, with the blessing of Silpa and the Winfield family we have now been able to secure additional commercial income vital in helping to continue the progress of the club.



“It would have been Bruce’s wishes that the club maximised its income streams in this way. Bruce’s name will live on in Winfield Way, on the road accessing the stadium.”

Disgraceful from the club in my opinion. Whilst I accept that the club spoke to the Winfield family, I don't feel the question should even have been asked. What are they going to say? It's only been named after Bruce for a few seasons for crying out loud.

Disappointed, but not surprised from a club so out of touch with it's supporters and history.

Not really sure why it needed to be done this way at all. With both the east and west stands not being sponsored currently, why risk the wrath of fans by re-naming a stand already bearing the name of a club saviour? The club seem to feel a periodic need to annoy it's lifeblood for no reason whatsoever

Well it might increase the noise level on Saturday, if a few wish to voice some irritation. There are a lot of syllables in "Structured Communications" so "You can stick your Structured Communications up your pass" doesn't flow very well.

Stop moaning. If it brings in extra money to get out out of this dreadful league position,I'm all for it. They can rename the club Structured Communications FC too if the price is right.

Poor show from the club.

A little bit more soul squeezed out.

I guess beggars can't be choosers with our financial situation at the moment but still, seems a very heartless and short sighted decision.
