COLCHESTER United will be looking to build a solid partnership with their new sponsors after linking up with TEXO Scaffolding.

The League Two side have agreed a three-year partnership with the Witham company, whose name will appear on the front of the U's home shirts from this season onwards.

The TEXO Scaffolding logo will appear on Colchester's new-look 2019/20 home shirt produced once again by Macron, which is due to be released soon and will be on sale on the club’s Open Day on July 14.

It replaces JobServe in appearing on the front of Colchester's home shirts.

U’s General Manager Tim Waddington said: “TEXO Scaffolding are an excellent local business and have been involved in sports sponsorships at varying levels for a number of years. We’re delighted that they have made this commitment to the club.

"We look forward to seeing the TEXO Scaffolding logo on Colchester United home shirts and developing our mutually beneficial partnership over the term of the sponsorship."

TEXO Scaffolding have a strong history of sports sponsorships.

In the past, they have sponsored world champion boxers Anthony Joshua, Anthony Crolla, Tony Bellew and Kell Brook and also have previous experience of sponsorship in football with Isthmian League side Heybridge Swifts, as well as supporting numerous local good causes.

TEXO Scaffolding Managing Director Robert Hayward said: “We as a company are always looking to get involved and support local sports teams and individuals, and are delighted to be part of what is no doubt going to be an exciting few years.

“As we respect and appreciate the drive and dedication it takes to succeed, be it in a sporting or business capacity, we are very much looking forward to an exciting future in association with Colchester United, growing together both on and off the pitch.”
