Chandler Material Supplies sponsors Chelmsford City
Published:  29 June, 2010

CHELMSFORD: Builders' merchant Chandler Material Supplies 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. Chandler was picked at random in the draw made at Melbourne Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

The prize includes sponsorship rights on the kit, as well as all replicas sold for the duration of the 2010/11 campaign.

Chandlers is an independent merchant based close to Hylands Park.

Clarets commercial manager, Aaron Desmond, said: "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."
