Egge Import To Sponsor Saturday's Cobblers Fixture

20 November 2015

We would like to give a big welcome to this weekend's match sponsors Egge Import, who will travel from Norway to be with us on Saturday afternoon for the home game with Northampton Town.

Egge Import is a company that started out as a family business in 1983 with its main clients in the cleaning business as it supplies items like hand towels, toilet paper and cleaning chemicals.

The company has two warehouses - one in Bergen, the main office, and one in Oslo, the capital of Norway.

Egge has been passed through the family and is now ran by Pål Fregstad, a Notts County fan, who has been involved with the company since 1994 before taking charge in January 2013.

Pål has been following Notts County since 1982 and his first games were the back-to-back home wins over Chelsea and West Ham United during the festive period of the 1991/92 season.

He came over to watch the 0-0 draws with Walsall and Coventry over the Easter weekend earlier in the year and will return to Meadow Lane after a seven-month absence.

Pål said: "I have made some great memories whilst supporting Notts County.

“Beating Rotherham United 5-2 when I came with my father for his first Notts game was special.

"My son came with me to the 1-0 home win against Swindon in November 2010 with Lee Hughes' name on the back of his shirt and Hughes came off the bench to score the late winner.

"The biggest disappointment was the League Cup tie against Nottingham Forest when we lost on penalties.

"In total, I have been to about 40 Notts games and I have had both pleasure and pain watching the team but you can never give up when you are on the Notts County rollercoaster!"

It is clear that Pål takes great pride in supporting Notts County and that is reflected in his decision to be the match sponsor for the game against the Cobblers.

"I have always said to my friends and colleagues that I would take the chance to sponsor a game and that opportunity has presented itself this Saturday afternoon,” he said.

"I will bring seven of my staff with me as a gift to bring them to a proper English football match.

"I hope we can get the three points and put in a good performance to make it a perfect day.”

Notts County's Head of Commercial and Events, Richard Cokayne, said: "We would like to thank Pål for his generous and ongoing support through his company, Egge Import.

"It is great that we can connect with our international fanbase and we hope Pål and his friends enjoy their day and return to Meadow Lane to take in more matches in the near future."
