Oxford United are pleased to welcome Smiths Bletchington as Match Sponsor for Friday’s Sky Bet League One encounter with Lincoln City.
Serving the construction industry in and around Oxfordshire, Smiths Bletchington have grown their roots from agricultural contracting and steam haulage to their current status as leading supplier of construction materials.
From washed sands, gravels and crushed limestone, Smiths Bletchington offers a vast range of agricultural and construction products, for delivery on its fleet company owned tippers. Additional products include the production and sale of natural Cotswold block stone, the merchanting of other aggregates and the production and distribution of recycled aggregates.
Smiths Bletchington’s relationship with the club stretches back to the 1960’s, when previous Managing Director Andrew Smith was taken to his first Oxford United game with his father Godfrey. Throughout the following decades the Smith family would be regular visitors to The Manor, whilst both parties would also benefit from small scale sponsorship deals.
Since the turn of the century the firm have consistently enjoyed the use of an executive box at the Kassam Stadium, whilst also stepping up their commercial involvement with the U’s. Many of the Yellow Army will have seen their Season Ticket card sponsorship and pitch side advertisements while you may not know they assisted the club in the removal of soil from the pitch dig-up over the summer.
Commercial & Distribution Manager Alfie Saunders told us, “The relationship between Smiths Bletchington and Oxford United runs back many decades through the Smith family. We have many employees who are fans of the club and are regularly serving the U’s supporters”.
“The long-lasting relationship has brought many memorial experiences with it. Back in the 80’s, Jim Smith was no stranger to our vehicle workshop where he regularly brought his car down to the garage for servicing”.
