Following the recent departure from his “merchandise messiah” role of club stalwart Dave Hicks, the shop has a new “Arkwright” – long-term EFC and ETFC supporter Colin Peppiatt. Welcome Colin!
Upon taking up his new appointment, Colin said “My passion for Town runs back to the old club’s Southbury Road days, where I loved attending games, firstly with my dad and then with schoolfriends.”
A Town Supporters’ Society member, Colin continued “Once I found out Dave Hicks had brought down the shutters one final time, I was keen to see if I could help fill his sizeable boots. In the short term I want to make sure you can get all your Christmas gifts and winter essentials from the club shop and I will also be introducing exciting new products as soon as possible.”
There will be a profile of Colin in a forthcoming home matchday programme, along with more information about his plans for developing the shop, including online. With three home games coming up in quick succession, why not pop along to say “hello” to Colin, and talk to him about ETFC gifts and souvenirs – there’s a wide range to choose from, including shirts, scarves, hats, gloves, mugs, keyrings and even rubber ducks!
