The prestige of furnishing Shrewsbury Town Football Club’s new training base has gone to Chrisbeon of Shrewsbury and Telford.
They were awarded the six and a half thousand pound contract to supply all the furniture for the spacious training ground at Sundorne Castle on the northern outskirts of town.
Physio Chris Skitt contacted Chrisbeon’s Shrewsbury premises in Lancaster Road to ask whether they would be interested in producing joint plans for the facilities which include rooms for the manager and coaches as well as a canteen.
Said Chris; “When I contacted Richard Hughes at the Chrisbeon Shrewsbury office I was delighted that he agreed to us working together and his kind work has been fundamental in getting a brilliant training facility which we have today.
“We were delighted with the selection of opportunities that Chrisbeon could provide and we have worked jointly together on the project.”
The canteen has nine tables and 35 chairs and the coaches room has six desks and chairs as well as filing cabinets and a sofa. In the manager’s office there is an executive desk and a round table with four meeting chairs.
Chrisbeon has also supplied physio stools and a small range of their Pre-Loved nearly new furniture.
Said Richard: “As I live in Shrewsbury and support Shrewsbury Town by attending home games whenever I can, it was really good to be involved with the new training ground and to see behind the scenes at the facilities.
“I was very impressed with how the new building has been fitted out inside, especially with the gym and of course the manager’s office which Chrisbeon has kitted out.”
