The Southampton branch of independent builders and timber merchant Covers Timber & Builders Merchants will be sponsoring local football team AFC Taunton for the 2021/2022 season.
Matt Kiloh, yard assistant at Covers Southampton who plays for AFC Taunton, said: “The players and I really appreciate Covers becoming the new sponsor for AFC Taunton as we go into our fourth season. We got promoted in our first season, then our second season saw us win the division 6 league and get into the semi-finals of the cup, but we sadly couldn’t play due to Covid. We finished mid table in our third season, so with the support of Covers we hope to have a successful fourth season too.”
Mike Sheath, depot manager of Covers Southampton, said: “It is an absolute pleasure to support AFC Taunton and we wish them every success as they enter their fourth season.”
As part of the sponsorship agreement, Covers’ logo will be displayed on the team’s kit.
