Vectis and Middlesbrough Football Club, a Winning Partnership!

We are proud to announce that Vectis and Vectis Collectables has partnered with Championship Football Club Middlesbrough for the season by sponsoring one of the first team players, Anfernee Dijksteel.

The Netherlands Under 20’s player joined Boro from Charlton Athletic in August 2019, becoming the fourth signing of that summer.

This is not the first time The Hambleton Group have partnered the local football club. The group (who owned Heritage Hampers at the time) was the Middlesbrough Club Sponsor for the 1988 – 1989 season and had the honour of not only having their logo on the club shirts but being awarded a Guinness World Record. In early part of 1989, Heritage Hampers received a letter from the Guinness Book of Records declaring that at a size of 23,228 sq. ft, the freshly painted hoarding was indeed the largest in the world!

We are confident that Anfernee will also leave a great lasting impression.
