The Mildenhall Fen Tigers have struck a sponsorship deal with Manchetts Ltd.
The agreement, which runs for the remainder of this season as well as in 2017 and 2018, will see the team rebranded the Mildenhall ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers.
Supporters will see the first fruits of the partnership this Sunday when Manchetts have made the new 100 metre air fence available before the official launch on Sunday, August 7 when Kent Kings visit the Mildenhall Stadium.
“This is very positive news for Mildenhall Speedway as we look to move the club forward and I would like to thank husband and wife team Sean and Mandy Manchett for supporting the club and for being so positive about the club in all our discussions,” said promoter Kevin Jolly.
“They have been impressed by the club ethos of looking to produce home grown youngsters through our Fen Tiger Cubs set-up and are fully supportive of the clubs three-year plan being put into place to reach the top of the National League with a team using local riders.
“As a club we are dedicated to bringing not only success to our local area but also raising awareness locally of our product whilst at the same time helping Manchetts promote their growing business through our association.
“We fully understand the need to support those who support us and are committed to helping Manchetts in any way we can via the various promotional and media outlets available to us. We are always looking to work with and promote local businesses and this is a big step forward for us in those ambitions.”
