Earlier this week, Mark Cooper was at their depot on the Fosseway near Cirencester for a photo opportunity with Simon Carrington, the company’s Managing Director and to personally thank Simon and his wife, Janet for their continued commercial commitment to Swindon Town FC.
Steve Anderson, STFC’s General Manager said: "It is excellent news that Cotswold Farm Machinery have extended their sponsorship of the club with their branding now appearing on the home and away shorts. CFM have been long-term supporters of the club and we look forward to developing our already-strong partnership even further.”
Simon commented: ”Without question, we are very proud to be able to continue our association with Swindon Town Football Club. As a lifelong supporter of the club, I have been attending matches at the County ground for 40 years with my father. In more recent years we have made match days a family event as our family has grown. Following on from my sponsorship commitments last season, the opportunity to become The Teams Short Sponsor seemed like a good proposition and the right progression.
