Habbi Liton, Sports President said: “This new and exciting partnership represents real and tangible progress in the sportswear arena for Strathclyde.
“It is, and will remain, a key area of student sport at Strathclyde and therefore it was crucial to find the right partner. I believe we have done that with PSL Canterbury.

There has been a significant amount of investment in this partnership from PSL already and it further demonstrates the ambition to improve our product ranges and customer service”
