County statement on Acorn
4:25pm Friday 15th March 2013 in Sport
Acorn announced yesterday that they were bringing to an end their long running and successful sponsorship of Newport County AFC after informing the Club that they would not be re-newing the agreement for next season.
The Club would like to place on record its sincere thanks for their wonderful sponsorship and support over the 14 year period and the significant contribution that it has made during that time.
Our thanks go to Matt Southall for the support from his company. Matt acknowledges that it was a business decision on their part not to continue the agreement.
We would also like to thank them for the magnanimous way that they have recognised that the Club is able to attract a new level of sponsors and partners which would preclude Acorns from the exclusivity they have expressed a desire of.
In addition to announcing a lucrative partnership with Sytner Newport, the Board will be announcing an exciting portfolio of new sponsors over the coming weeks and months in their quest to take Newport County AFC forward.
