Builders merchant Chandler Material Supplies has won Chelmsford City’s shirt sponsorship rights, after entering a raffle style competition to find the club a new backer.
Chelmsford invited local companies to enter the sponsorship raffle for a single payment of £500. The draw was made at the Melbourne Stadium on Wednesday afternoon and Chandler was picked at random.
The prize includes sponsorship rights on the kit, as well as all replicas sold for the duration of the 2010/11 campaign.
Clarets Commercial Manager, Aaron Desmond, explained: “It was encouraging to see so many local businesses coming forward to support the raffle and we thank them all for taking part in difficult times. We brought £11,000 into the club and it was great that Chandlers won as they’ve been supporters for some time”
