Not many admen could persuade a statuesque American basketball star to parade in a suit made entirely of green and red tartan. But Faulds Advertising managing director Dennis Chester holds the trump card: he pays the guy’s wages.
Chester co-owns Edinburgh Rocks, a Pro Basketball Budweiser League team.
Chester and two partners, under the name Oddballs in Sport, bought the team franchise last year. They are scouting for a company which wants to sponsor a “clean, modern upmarket sport with great school/college development links”.
So if you fancy associating yourselves with Scotland’s answer to Michael Jordon and Magic Johnson, or just want to look like an oddball in a tartan suit, jump to it.
