Mackie Motors has once again showed its support for Dundee United by agreeing to a new sponsorship deal.

The family-run dealer group has supplied eight vehicles to the Scottish Premiership club, including a recent delivery of four Nissan Qashqais.

It's the 18th year in succession the partnership has been formed between Mackie Motors - which has a Nissan dealership in Montrose Road, Arbroath - and Dundee United.

Mackie Motors' General Manager Greg Black - who has been a lifelong Tangerines supporter - was at the Tannadice to hand over the fleet to defenders Callum Morris and Sean Dillon, goalkeeping coach Stuart Garden, youth development manager Dave Bowman, and the club's community manager, Gordon Grady.

Grady said: "Our partnership with Mackie Motors has been a long and fruitful one, dating back to 1998. Every year the company supplies us with a fleet of fantastic vehicles for the club to use.

"We really appreciate support from local firms like this. It's all part of being a great community club."

Greg, from Mackie Motors, was delighted at arranging the sponsorship deal with his team, who he has supported since he was six.

"I'm a huge Dundee United fan so it's fantastic Mackie Motors has such a strong relationship with the club," he said.

"The Nissan Qashqai is a great car and so easy to drive; they will be a valuable addition to Dundee United's fleet whether they're being used fro transporting staff or players around or moving equipment."
