Tiverton Town announce new Main Sponsor
Aston Manor Cider, the largest independent cider maker in the UK, is proud to announce its sponsorship of Tiverton Town FC as the new season kicks off.
The deal comprises of a five-figure sum to refurbish the infrastructure of the club, particularly the function suite, which is widely used by the community.
An additional annual amount has also been agreed with Aston Manor’s key brand, Kingstone Press, as the main sponsor of the club, with the logo to be featured on the players’ shirts.
Paul Clifford, site director at Tiverton for Aston Manor Cider commented: “We are delighted to be supporting Tiverton Town and to be helping develop the infrastructure of the club and assist in the modernisation of the club and the function suite.
“We’ve more than doubled the work-force at our Tiverton site since taking over, and feel very much a part of the community. We are very happy to be able to give something back.”
The club added: “We are delighted to have the support of Aston Manor Cider. Not only will this benefit the club, but also the local community as the function suite is used by lots of people in the surrounding areas.
“We’re looking forward to getting started with the refurbishments and fingers crossed to a successful season for the team!”
The Tiverton site is a key part of Aston Manor cider’s operations, having recently benefited from a three year investment programme in excess of £10 million which transformed production. It will also be benefitting from a further £5 million investment across the company’s production sites.
Aston Manor acquired the site in Tiverton in November 2009, at the time around 35-40 people were employed. The site now employs more than 85 people with further recruitment planned this side of Christmas due to increased production – which provide a complete additional packaging shift for the canning operation.
Tiverton Town play in the Southern League and South & West Division. The club celebrated its centenary last year.

Reserve team news
Good away win in the Devon Premier Cup....
The team continued from last week's game against Newtown, by scoring 5 goals in the first half. First goal coming from Kieran Rapo with a close range finish, Beer Alston equalized after Tiverton gave away a penalty. Second goal was scored by Dave O'Connor with a delicate lob over the goalkeeper, the third was 5 minutes later and was a close range header from Luke Mortimer. The fourth goal was a good move which resulted with Isaac Furness slotting the ball home. And Dave O'Connor scoring his second of the game making it 5-1 at half time.
Second half started with some strong fierce tackling from the home side, but two further goals created by Luke Mortimer and scored by Kieran Rapo, this making his tally five goals in the last two games.
Overall a very good team performance away from home, but we are looking forward to having three home games in a row in the coming weeks.
It's great to see the team scoring lots of goals, but that means the report is longer and more work for me to remember!
Team:- Wannel, Furness, Searle, Ashford, Groom, Mortimer, Passmore, Jones, Wakley, Rapo, O'Connor. Subs:- Kewley for Furness, Crook for Searle, Goff for Groom.
Good result after last week's disappointment...
A fantastic response from the team yesterday after the disappointment of last week when we lost 2-0 to Sidbury.
The first goal was scored in the first half by Jake Searle from inside the 6 yard box. The second half produced four further goals. John Bradford scoring after a one on one with the goalkeeper made it 2-0. Then two further goals were scored by Kieran Rapo, his first league goals scored since his move from Elmore. The scoring was completed by Luke Passmore with a powerful 30 yard shot, which made the final score 5-0.
This was an important result and gaining 3 points for the team as we don't have a league game next weekend, as we are playing away in the Devon Premier Cup.
With some separate news, we are delighted to have signed Scott Townsend and also that we have re-signed Darren Goff to the club for this season.
A brief roundup of pre-season and the start of the new season.
The team had a fantastic pre-season, being undefeated and playing some very attractive football, this was very pleasing to the management and coaching staff.
We have managed to keep the majority of last season's squad with the addition of four new players signing for the club.
We have won our first two league games, scoring 9 goals and conceding 2, but unfortunately last weekend against Sidbury we lost 2-0, this was our third game in seven days which might of taken it's toll on the players.
We are away at Newtown this weekend with the players looking to bounce back and get a good result.
