Shropshire housebuilder renews Shrewsbury Town kit sponsorship deal

Independent housebuilder, Shropshire Homes, has renewed a kit sponsorship deal with League One side Shrewsbury Town FC.

Shropshire Homes has been a supporter of the club for over 30 years and this latest deal will see the company’s branding appear on the team’s away kit for the 2019/2020 season.

Howard Thorne, Managing Director of Shropshire Homes, said: “We first sponsored Shrewsbury Town back in 1986 shortly after we had established the business. It was the match ball sponsorship for the game against Chelsea in the FA Cup. We have also sponsored the club’s youth team since 2000 and were proud to have our name on the first team’s away shirts for the past two seasons.

“I’m delighted to sponsor the 2019/20 away kit and can’t wait to see the shirts in action on the pitch, and of course being worn by proud supporters around the county.”

Shrewsbury Town’s commercial manager, Andrew Tretton, added: “Shropshire Homes has been a mainstay of sponsorship for the club for many years, regularly sponsoring matches, advertising boards, the youth team and academy, and of course have been on the front of our away shirts for the past couple of seasons.

“As has been the case for many years now, this is a significant level of commitment from Shropshire Homes and I am thrilled that Howard and his co-directors have decided to continue supporting the club.”

Shropshire Homes is currently working at a number of developments across the county, including conversions at Leighton Park in Shrewsbury, and The Beeches in Ironbridge, as well as new builds at Hanwood and Pontesbury. The company has well-deserved reputation for creating homes in keeping with their environment, and an impressive track-record of converting prestigious, historic, listed, iconic, and often sensitive buildings, into luxury properties.
