PRESS RELEASE FROM GRANTHAM TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB:
Grantham Town Football Club is very pleased to announce that Local design company GIGER MEDIA are the new Marketing Partners for Grantham Town Football Club and The Gingerbread conference centre.
To launch the partnership GIGER MEDIA this week officially presented the chief executive, Keith Horton with the newly designed gingerbread man mascot – his name, Isaac.
The new mascot costume was built in the UK by a specialist company that hand makes professional mascot costumes and promotional outfits for other teams and sports events.
Isaac will also be used to promote and market The Gingerbread conference centre attached to the football ground in what the management call ‘a variety of novel ways’. Keith Horton, Chief Executive of Grantham Town Football Club commented;
“We are absolutely delighted with the mascot that GIGER MEDIA have given us” says Keith Horton, “It will help us to market the team and The Gingerbread conference centre outside of matches, and also provide some family fun and entertainment for the fans during homes games.”
Tony Lee of GIGER MEDIA commented: “When we were approached by Keith Horton regarding becoming a business supporter we weren’t sure what we could initially bring to the club, until he mentioned that the old mascot wasn’t really up to much now, and actually hadn’t been used for ages. We offered to design the new gingerbread man, complete with matching football strip, and said that we would have him made and then gift him to the club, much to Keith’s delight.”
