"Securing the naming rights is really special for us" says Weavers owner

The home of Drogheda United FC is to be renamed 'Weavers Park' after a deal was signed this week with Brian Browning, a former Chairman of the Club, who is the new owner of the famous West Street bar, restaurant and venue.

The initial one-year deal, which may run for three seasons, will see the front of the Windmill Road venue rebranded from ‘Head in the Game Park’ to ‘Weavers Park.’

Brian Browning said he was delighted to get behind the club where he once served as chairman.

"The club is synonymous with the town and we wanted to get behind the club in some way and securing the naming rights is really special for us.

"The Weavers on West Street is an iconic brand, like the Drogs, so why not combine them into a winning team," he stated.

Drogheda United General Manager Hubert Murphy said that the support of the community has been a huge source of encouragement for the club and the players, especially since coming out of Covid.

"Kevin, Daire and the team performed wonders in 2022 and we'd love to get the town behind them again this season. We are part-timers, against the big boys, but Kevin has made some very astute signings and the squad is shaping up well."

Club officials, management, players and Weavers staff gathered to launch the new association on West Street.

"The Weavers is named after a very traditional art from Drogheda's past and we hope to honour that with various cultural events throughout the season,' the general manager added.
