A Scottish workers union and fans' football team have linked up for a new sponsorship deal. 

The Communications Workers Union (CWU) have announced they will sponsor the Partick Thistle Fan Group, Jags for Good, football team.

Jags for Good, which is a fan collective that mobilises supporters for social justice causes, has an impressive track record of raising money for local food banks and helping others with energy bills.

With the CWU Scotland's support for Fans Supporting Food Banks across Scotland, the sponsorship has been branded as a 'natural continuation'.

Speaking on the new venture, CWU Scotland secretary, Craig Anderson, said: "We are delighted to sponsor the Jags for Good football team.

"Their values of helping and supporting people in the wider community very much align with our own.

"We recognise that mutual aid at the best of times, let alone within the current cost of incomes and living crisis, is vital.

"The very core of trade unions is built on solidarity, collectivism and mutual aid and we know that these are the principles of Jags for Good.

"We look forward to working with them to help support people in Glasgow and beyond and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with them.”

Neil Cowan from Jags for Good, said: "Jags For Good are all about mobilising Partick Thistle fans in the name of social justice causes in the local community, and setting up our own football team is a way of bringing Jags fans together with others in the local community while also hopefully winning a few games of football.

"Having CWU Scotland Region come on board with that – by sponsoring our home kits - is fantastic.

"We’ll be proud to have their name on our strips when we play, and we hope we can reward their support and solidarity with a few wins."
