TAUNTON Town Football Club has made some significant changes to the clubhouse during the past two weeks.

First off, the club has confirmed a new partnership with local drinks producer Sheppy's Cider which will see draught cider served.

The new agreement will see Sheppy’s provide draught and bottled cider in the clubhouse at Wordsworth Drive and also display a number of advertising boards around the stadium.

Chairman Kevin Sturmey said: "We are delighted to partner with Sheppy’s Cider, the Number 1 Taunton Cider, as we strive to enhance our community partnerships.

“We have so much on our doorstep and it’s great to find mutual support locally to us. Sheppy’s Cider has been around for over 200 years, so they really know their stuff.

"There is so much more than just cider though and visiting them is a must as there really is something for everyone there. We look forward to a successful, prosperous and enhancing partnership for many years to come.”

David Sheppy, Managing Director at Sheppy’s Cider remarked: "We are passionate about supporting our local community and our partnership with Taunton Town FC is built on shared values with local life at the heart.

"I speak for the entire Sheppy’s team when I say we are looking forward to supporting the team and raising a glass to the victories ahead.”

The return of draught to the clubhouse will be certain to satisfy popular demand but there are other developments in the pipeline.

Chairman Sturmey added: "We are currently talking to many suppliers and plan to add draught lager in the near future. We are always looking to forge trading partnerships in order to maximise product exposure and sales for everyone.

"There are many improvements planned over the next few months to complement what we believe is one of the best match day experiences in non-league.”

One such improvement was announced on Friday (October 20) as the club confirmed TNT Sports will be available to watch in the clubhouse at Wordsworth Drive.

Football Operations Manager Karl Lindsay said: "I’m really pleased to announce that TNT Sports is now available. We are working on multiple screens going forward but for now we have one up and running.

"We have worked really hard at the Club in making changes to better the offer we have, both on matchday and for other functions away from matchday.

"Feedback from supporters has been acted on so there should be no excuses now for fans not to arrive early before a game and stay after in our new improved bar to watch games and mingle with players and staff. Watch out for more improvements in the weeks to come.”
