Notts County’s new commercial operations manager Simon Fotheringham has written a message to supporters.
It’s an honour and privilege to be here at the world’s oldest Football League club and I really am relishing the challenge.
In the short time I’ve been in my new position I’ve already met so many people who hold this wonderful football club close to their hearts. I assure you I will be doing everything I can to help move the club forward.
I've really enjoyed my opening weeks and I'm thrilled that, after an unfortunate result against Plymouth, we got a deserved first win of the season at Hartlepool on Saturday. I'm sure there will be many more victories to come in what I hope will be a successful and enjoyable season.
We have a wide range of opportunities available to businesses and supporters alike, ranging from sponsoring our players’ boots and socks for £30 + VAT, to back of shirt and stand sponsorship.
We also have award-winning hospitality available at all of our home games in the Wheeler Suite, which is visited by a first-team squad member prior to kick-off and the Man of the Match after full-time, and there are many opportunities for businesses to advertise their brand alongside the world’s oldest Football League club.
Below is a brief insight into some of the opportunities available. I would love to discuss any of these further with individuals or businesses should they be of interest.
