Harrod UK Exclusive Suppliers To Ipswich Town FC
Lowestoft based sports equipment and netting manufacturers Harrod UK have signed a formal agreement with Ipswich Town Football Club. As 'Exclusive Equipment Suppliers' Harrod UK will continue their long standing history of providing goals for the main stadium pitch, the training ground and academies, indeed one of Ipswich's longest serving employees Pat Godbold fondly remembers her first job with the club, was to order a pair of goal nets from Ron Harrod, some 50 years ago!
Chief Executive Chris Harrod says" As a season ticket holder for many years, it is particularly pleasing for me that our company will continue to work with the club at this level. For the last 6 years we have been working with Alan Ferguson to upgrade the clubs equipment with the aim of forming a Centre of Excellence and a real showcase for our equipment. We are looking forward to working closer with both Alan and Simon Milton over the next few years" The project is being managed by Mark Smith, Head of Design at Harrod UK, another life long Town supporter.
