Exeter youngsters to get their hands on the trophy
Youngsters at an Exeter school will be the envy of their friends and family when they get their hands on one of football’s most treasured trophies.
The Johnstone’s Paint Trophy – which Exeter City are just three games away from winning – will be visiting Ellen Tinkham School in Hollow Lane on Thursday January 20.
Pupils will be able to see the piece of silverware for themselves and get an exciting new lesson in football from Johnstone’s Paint.
Representatives from the brand will also be on hand to give out official replica mini-balls for all children, before allowing them to have their pictures taken with the prize that all Exeter City fans are hoping to win.
The trophy will then make the short journey to the Johnstone’s decorating centre in Marsh Barton Industrial Estate, off Hennock Road from 2pm, for customers to make the most of.
Johnstone’s Paint Trophy sponsorship manager Teresa Hardwick said that the visit was part of a wider community campaign to engage with as many youngsters as possible, near to the teams participating in the competition.
She said: “We can’t wait to visit everyone at Ellen Tinkham School, which is a fixture we’ve had on our list for some time now.
“As sponsors of the trophy, we always try to interact with as many families and children as possible through a number of projects and initiatives.
“Bringing the trophy to a school like this allows us to talk about football, our sponsorship, and the positive impact that the game has on the wider community.”
The trophy will also be at the Johnstone’s decorating centre in Marsh Barton Industrial Estate from 2pm, where visitors can have their photo’s taken with it and be entered into a prize draw to win four tickets for Exeter City’s area final second leg game against Brentford on Tuesday February 8.
