Scarborough Athletic have been able to continue the Kids Go Free scheme at matches thanks to the support of UPM Raflatac.

The Kids Go Free scheme gives children aged under-11 the chance to enter Queensgate for free at all Boro home games during the 2016/17 season.

UPM Raflatac is a leading global supplier of pressure sensitive labeling solutions, with the UK headquarters based at Wareham Road in Eastfield. The films and papers produced are used for product and information labelling across a wide range of end-uses – from pharmaceuticals and security to food and beverage applications.

Neil Bland, Operations Manager for UPM Raflatac said: "Our Scarborough production site has provided employment opportunities in the local area for over 30 years, in which time we have strived to continually support the local community, non-profit organisations and the environment.

"We are very pleased we have this opportunity to support the Kids Go Free scheme at Scarborough Athletic so that youngsters can enjoy supporting our local football team and feel part of our community."

Andy Troughton, director at Boro added: "We are delighted to be working with one of Scarborough's premier companies, UPM Raflatac, to support the Kids Go Free scheme.

It’s important that we make it as affordable as possible for youngsters to attend our games, and we would like to thank UPM Raflatac for making this possible."
