CHORLEY FC are benefitting from the use of a new kit van thanks to the club’s partnership with Simply Van Sales Ltd, writes Josh Vosper.

Based on Delhi Road in Irlam, SVS and Chorley FC have established a partnership and the local dealership is delighted to supply the Magpies with the van.

Nick Hawke, from Simply Van Sales said: “We have over 15 experience in supplying vehicles to companies, sole traders, self-employed, local business and private individuals.

“We are extremely passionate about what we do and believe in providing exceptional customer service.

“After providing the van it was brilliant to meet Matt Jansen and he was an absolute gentleman.

“He’s obviously played at the highest level, but was down to earth and cared about what we are doing here.”

The company has also picked up three golden tickets for the 200 Club.

Hawke added: “We took an instant liking to the club and everything you are trying to achieve.

“A football team’s success on the field always creates a buzz around the region which is good for everyone’s spirits and the local economy and so we wish them all the best for the rest of the season.”

Manager Matt Jansen said: “Huge thanks to Nick and Roy at SVS for their partnership with the club.

“The new kit van looks fantastic and will be hugely useful to us over the course of the season, both on match days and on day-to-day basis. I know that Jono (our kitman) is delighted with it.

“I’m also pleased they are supporting the 200 Club. We are working with some fantastic companies and individuals, which shows their commitment to us, for which we are very grateful.”
