Time 7:30 am, May 9, 2012

THURLOW Nunn Vauxhall, a division of the Thurlow Nunn Group, has announced it’s sponsoring the Eastern Counties Football League.

The business, one of East Anglia’s largest and oldest family owned firms with 10 Vauxhall sites across the region, has signed a three-year sponsorship deal with the league in time for the start of the 2012-13 season in August.

Simon Bottomley, Thurlow Nunn’s Group managing director, said: ‘We are extremely proud to announce our sponsorship of the Eastern Counties Football League.

‘It is the ideal opportunity to demonstrate how much we value the significance of a healthy and active lifestyle. With so many of our sites located in towns represented within the league, this is a great fit for our business.

‘What’s more, as proud sponsors of Home Nations Football, Vauxhall shows its support of football players and teams nationwide and so, as a Vauxhall retailer, it’s only natural that we should sponsor our local league.’

Nigel Spurling, secretary from Eastern Counties Football League Limited, said: ‘We are delighted that Thurlow Nunn Vauxhall has agreed to sponsor our competition from the start of the 2012-13 football season.

‘Our league will now be known as the Thurlow Nunn League and we welcome our new partners in the hope that the two companies will derive great benefit from the relationship and build further upon their past success.’
