An award-winning car leasing company has shared its joy and elation at its partnership with Northampton Town Football Club.
The Silverstone Fleet Management logo has been proudly displayed on the first team match day warm up T-shirts, tops and bench jackets for both the players and the coaching staff since the beginning of the 2021/22 season in August.
Silverstone Fleet Management managing director, Scott Norville, believes his company’s logo on the claret and white kits is a ‘lucky charm’ for the Cobblers, who have had an impressive start to the season.
The team are, at the time of writing, in second place in EFL League Two with 40 points, after winning eight of their last 10 matches. The away clash against Harrogate Town saw a 2-1 victory which put Northampton Town FC just four points behind top-of-the-table Forest Green in the approach to Christmas.
Scott Norville said:
“Being part of the Cobblers has been a dream come true for us already – we’ve always been big fans of our local club and decided to become official partners to show our support to both the Cobblers and our local community.
“We are a local company, and it is hugely important to us to work collaboratively with community organisations and other local businesses to bring success and prosperity to our town.
“As we approach our tenth year of trading, in what has been a turbulent year for the car leasing industry as we’ve tackled a pandemic and a supply shortage, it is more important than ever for us to give back to the community that has trusted and supported us and, in doing that, help drive the local economy.”
The Cobblers, nicknamed as a reference to the town’s historical shoe-making industry, have had a brilliant run of form – well deserved after a disappointing previous season.
In 2020, they gained promotion to League One, but were relegated to League Two once again after a single season in the third tier.
But this season, the team have battled hard to return to glory and putting themselves back in the running for promotion.
“We are delighted that the team have had such an amazing start to the season – they are on fire! The entire Silverstone Fleet Management team is thrilled that we’ve been a part of that success through our sponsorship union.
“We are always proud to see our SFM logo on the training tops. It must be their lucky charm!”
Silverstone Fleet Management is renowned in Northamptonshire for its five-star customer service, finding customers the right vehicles by professionally assisting with a competitive pricing structure and unrivalled support.
Northampton Town Football Club Commercial Director Caroline Lucy said:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Silverstone Fleet Management. Our commercial ethos has always been to work with local brands to retain and drive the local economy. This new partnership clearly continues that ethos and we are proud and excited to wear the Silverstone Fleet Management logo on our warm-up kit.
“It has been a fantastic start to the season for us and we are looking forward to an exciting second half of the season as we continue our push towards the top of the table.”
