Hop Kettle Back Player of the Month Award

Local brewery step in to sponsor Player of the Month awards.

Shrivenham Football Club is delighted to announce that local brewery – Hop Kettle, has become official sponsor of our Player of the Month awards for the 2020-21 campaign.

The new deal will see the brewery provide a case of its beer which will be presented to the chosen players from the First XI and Development sides at the end of each month, as selected by the management teams.

Tom Gee, founder of the Hop Kettle Brewery said:  “We are delighted to contribute a selection of different cases of Hop Kettle beers on a monthly basis for the Shrivenham FC Player of the Month award.“

Based at the Hawksworth Industrial Estate in Swindon, the Hop Kettle Brewing Co. have a several places where supporters can try Hop Kettle beers, including online purchases (which includes home delivery to Shrivenham), the Brewery Tap on Hawksworth Industrial Estate along with their new venture Hop Kettle Tap and Brew in Old Town, Swindon.

The Hop Kettle Brewing Company will also see their branding appear on a new pitch side advertising board and one of their brands - ShootingStar Pilsner, will also become the title sponsor of our just for fun ‘Shot of the Game’ clip which is chosen following games that are recorded.

With over two decades of experience in hospitality, Tom has an insider’s understanding of the drinks industry, and the technical knowledge required to create one-of-a-kind brews and rather than seeing beer as an established product in an established industry, he saw it as a drink with no end of potential and variety.

Hop Kettle Brewing Co. is his means of exploring the possibilities of brewing, using a diverse range of ingredients to create beers with unique flavour profiles and he concluded:  “We have had to refocus and adapt as a brand to the constraints the pandemic has subjected us to, but we have been impressed with how the volunteers at the football club have supported their local community and wish all teams associated with the club all the very best for the upcoming season.”

Speaking about the new partnership, club Chairman Matt Hirst added:  “Hop Kettle have been absolutely brilliant in supporting our first two Beer Festival’s, so to see them develop their association with the club even further is truly amazing stuff.

“They’re another fantastic local partner for the club and we will certainly be looking to stock a selection of their products in the clubhouse to enhance the visitor experience.”
