Cheers as former player Jim backs United

Torbay Weekly

Jim Mardell used to play football for Torquay United's youth and reserve team - now he is one of the club's main sponsors

Jim is boss of Tolchards whose logo is now a familiar sight to the Yellow Army as the drinks wholesaler is embroidered on the left shoulder of this seasons home shirt and the company features on the club's co-branded Mini.

Family-owned and managed,  Tolchards was established in 2010 and is the leading drinks distributor for the South of England. Over the last 11 years the company has built a strong reputation for supplying customers on time with minimal fuss.

Chairman Jim has been a regular at Plainmoor for many years and featured in the Youth and Reserve teams in the 1970’s. He said: “As exclusive drink suppliers to TUAFC we were keen to promote Tolchards and demonstrate how the club is supporting a local business.

“As always the better the results on the pitch the more exposure and sales. Of course we have the co-branded Mini!”

United Commercial Manager Sharon Musker said: "I would personally like to thank Tolchards for their ongoing sponsorship. It is a pleasure working with them as they are such nice people – especially Jim and James who are exceptionally professional in every aspect. Their sponsorship has proved invaluable with the club car and our own Torquay United beer ‘Bryn’. I really hope this partnership continues for a number of years.”
