The mall has pledged a five-figure sum to Saints this season and, in return, will have the Braehead logo on the players' shorts and signage at the stadium.

Braehead was the club's main sponsorfrom 2005 to 2011, with its name on the front of the first-team shirts.

Last season, the shopping mall – one of Renfrewshire's biggest employers – sponsored the away strip.

St Mirren commercial manager Campbell Kennedy said: "Braehead has been our longest ever major sponsor of the players' kit. No one else has committed themselves to that level of financial support to the club over such a lengthy period of time.

"It's fantastic that Braehead has stood by St Mirren for so long with big money sponsorship.

"And it's not just St Mirren who has benefited from Braehead.

"The shopping centre pours tens of millions of pounds into the local economy every year and is a great supporter of charities and good causes.

"Braehead is good for Renfrewshire."

Mall general manager Peter Beagley said: "We like to get our black and white scarf on to support St Mirren – our local team.

"We are glad to play our part to make the club a financial success."
