East of England Co-op Extend Stand Sponsorship
Friday, 14th Aug 2015 11:29
The East of England Co-op have extended their sponsorship of Town’s West Stand for a further three years until 2018.
The stand, previously known as the Pioneer Stand and the Britannia Stand, has been sponsored by the East of England Co-op since 2012.
“The relationship between the club and the East of England Co-op is a great one,” Town’s director of sales, Rosie Richardson, told the club site.
“We both work together to consistently strive on developing new initiatives for the benefit of the supporters and the community.
“The East of England Co-op team are proactive and we are so pleased that they are continuing to sponsor the West Stand for a further three-year period. We thank them for their support and loyalty.”
The East of England Co-op’s head of member and community services, Christian Bone, added: “We are delighted to continue the strong partnership and by working together in the local community, we are confident we can make a positive impact in areas such as health and well being and the development of young people in particular.”
To celebrate the news, the East of England Co-op will be firing Farmyard Friends and T-shirts into the crowd to celebrate at half-time during Saturday’s game against Sheffield Wednesday.
They will also be giving away prizes including gift vouchers at their membership vehicle by the East of England Co-op Stand turnstiles prior to kick-off, while you could win a TV if you’re in an extra lucky seat.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.

When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
