Fleetwood appoints namesake as head of commercial

League One side Fleetwood Town FC has appointed Joe Fleetwood to head up its commercial department.

Joe, a former professional golfer and brother of current star Tommy, has extensive experience in the sporting world.

He previously worked as a senior operator at a number of exclusive leisure facilities in the UK, and negotiated commercial deals on behalf of leading sports personalities while working at management firm Hambric Sports.

He said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining such a great club in Fleetwood Town. Their success over the past decade has been truly inspirational and I hope play a huge part in helping to continue that success.

“The club already has a fantastic group of loyal sponsors who have supported the club for many years and I look forward to working closely with them, while also actively searching for new partners."

Joe replaces outgoing Head of Commercial Martin Booker, who has left the club after six years of heading up its commercial department.
