Thatchers Cider provides free travel to Liverpool for loyal Away Travel fansIN A SUPERB show of support to the Exeter City fans who travel by the official supporters' coach to every away match, come rain or shine, Thatchers Cider have paid for these fans to travel to Liverpool in a coach at the market-leading cider makers' expense.
The company, who also sponsor the Thatchers Big Bank, were one of the three Match Sponsors for the home tie against the Premier League giants last week, and named the fans on the Big Bank as their ‘Man of the Match’ choice, based on the incredible support they gave to the team which played a vital part in driving the Grecians’ amazing effort in the thrilling ninety minutes.
Thatchers Sales Director Chris Milton said: "We are very much a family company with our roots firmly focused in the communities we do business in and are very close to Exeter City Football Club because of the extremely positive role the club plays in the daily life of its local area communities. We also understand the commitment, expense and time it takes for the hardcore fans who support their club all over the country, whatever the weather and departure times, whatever time they arrive home at and regardless of results and league positions. We were inspired by the support that the Thatchers Big Bank gave the team last Friday, and so providing a coach for the most deserving of regular away travel fans seemed the natural thing to do for the replay in Liverpool."
Mark Jenkins, Head of Commercial at Exeter City, added: "Thatchers are truly excellent people to deal with and we are very proud to have them as major club partners and sponsors of the Thatchers Big Bank. They have supported us in really positive ways ever since we started our partnership, and they genuinely understand the football world. They have donated Match Sponsorships to the ‘Dream-A-Way’ charity, helped the club in any number of different ways and now they have rewarded the most deserving of fans. It is a credit to a terrific company and we thank them."
