Young United fans enjoying Olly's Den
Oxford United’s ‘Olly’s Den’ area has been a massive success this season with thousands of young supporters enjoying pre-match activities in the new area.
Olly’s Den sits next to the Family Area at the Kassam Stadium and before every game there are activities such as table tennis, a speed gun to measure the power of your shooting, a target shooting game and penalty shoot outs. There are player visits and there is always plenty happening. The area is astroturfed and looks fantastic thanks to Chris Drewett Signs, who are sponsoring the Den along with Newtrim UK.
Chris Drewett Signs produced huge wall coverings which make Olly’s Den stand out and Oxford United’s Head of Corporate Andy Wooldridge said:
“We’d like to thank Neil Woodcock of Newtrim UK Limited and Paul Clark of Chris Drewett Signs. Their support has been a massive help in launching Olly’s Den and they have made it look fantastic. Young supporters really enjoy having the activities to take part in before kick-off and we believe that a positive matchday experience for young fans is vital in helping produce the next generation of Oxford supporters.”
Chris Drewett Signs have been making professional signage in the Oxford area for over 20 years and have been helping with the club’s signage requirements for many years. They specialise in signage, graphics and sign writing for a wide range of applications including shop signs and fascias, vehicle graphics and illuminated signage.
Newtrim UK Limited, formed back in 1973, are market leaders in automotive interiors, bar and restaurant seating and re-upholstery. They are also preferred suppliers of production line vehicle protection with customers such as Rolls Royce Motorcars, Mini, Jaguar Landrover and Honda all saving huge amounts of money in reducing rework.
Neil Woodcock, pictured in Olly’s Den with youngsters from Wantage Town Juniors, told us:
“Myself and Paul wanted to do something alongside the club in trying to make the match day experience a more exciting time for the young supporters. It’s important that we encourage the next generation to get along and support Oxford United and everything they’re trying to do to move the club forward. I personally think this year has been a step in the right direction. A small step maybe but the seeds are being sewn for a much brighter future.”
