The Partnership also covers Iseki’s range of agricultural machinery, which will be showcased at events such as the annual ‘Farmer’s Day’ at the Club.

David Withers, Managing Director of Iseki UK & Ireland said “The opportunity to work with such a respected and long-established Club is very exciting for both me and the team at Iseki.

We have historically had a close relationship with England Rugby and now directly supporting one of the top Rugby Premiership clubs offers us the opportunity to use the facilities at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens to showcase our machinery to both existing and prospective customers.

We have supplied Saints with an Iseki TG6687 HST 67hp tractor with loader, which will be used for both on and off pitch work, one of our excellent SXG327 54” ride-on grass collecting mowers and a TXGS24 sub-compact tractor for use on the High-Performance Centre’s indoor pitches. Other products will be used by the Club at various points in the year.

Anthony Shepherd and Simon Tunn from our local dealer, P.A Turney Ltd., were extremely helpful in introducing us to Saints’ Head Groundsman, Andy Miller, and the rest of the management team at the Gardens, who share our excitement at being able to work together going forward. We will certainly be making extensive use of the facilities for both match days utilising our box, and for events and meetings at the Club in the future”.
