Rimington have agreed an historic ground sponsorship deal with Greenthumb.

The Coulthurst Sports Ground will now be known as @GreenthumbBburn Sports Ground.

Chairman, and former manager Terry Braithwaite, said: “Rimington F.C. are very pleased to announce that, following on from several treatments to the pitch, Greenthumb have agreed this deal as part of a partnership with the club.

“I met with Tyler Stevenson from the company prior to the match against Burnley United on Saturday, and was thrilled that they will be continuing the work on the playing surface.

“There is already a noticeable difference, they have reduced the amount of moss and weeds, and the grass is so lush.

“This is further evidence of the continuous improvement that the club is striving to make, and with the work the Recreation Association have been doing too, the village can be proud of what everyone is achieving.”

On Saturday, Rimington drew 2-2 with Burnley United at the @GreenthumbBburn Sports Ground.

Rimington got off to a flying start. In the fourth minute, Matt Bagot reached the ball on the byeline and hooked an overhead kick across to Sam Langford to slam home.

Burnley levelled 10 minutes later as a cross from the left was headed into the bottom corner by the forward.

Rimington regained the lead when a Oli Devenney free kick found Bagot, and he made no mistake with a header.

The visitors equalised on 63 minutes after a mix-up between Thomas Fowler and keeper Graeme Kershaw.

Rimington, who played their Craven Cup semi-final against Ingleton at Settle on Thursday evening, will host second placed Feniscowles on Saturday.
