Non league football kit news as the new Chesham United 2023-24 kits made by Karuta are sponsored by Channel 4 comedy entertainment show, Taskmaster.
Alex Horne, both the creator and joint presenter of Taskmaster alongside Greg Davies, is the director of non league Chesham United and decided to take to feature the Taskmaster logo on the front of the clubs 2023-24 shirts to raise extra funds for the non league side.
Alex Horne said, “As a football fan I understand how important words on shirts are. I grew up with Candy and Crown Paints dominating my childhood. Now, I hope, Taskmaster will be forever associated with my dream team, Chesham Utd, and everyone will live happily ever after”.
Chesham United Chairman Peter Brown said, “Since Alex Horne agreed to join the Board just over a year ago he has done a tremendous job of raising the profile of Chesham United Football club, culminating in the incredible comedy football match we hosted a fortnight ago, attended by nearly 3,000 supporters. We would like to thank Alex Horne and Avalon for their ongoing co-operation and support.
With this in mind we have come to the unique arrangement whereby our First XI will be proudly wearing the Taskmaster name on our kit for all games played next season, and we will be looking to sell replica shirts, which will exclusively be available through the official Chesham United website. This is a really exciting partnership that I know will continue to raise the profile of our club, as well as raising more awareness for the hit television programme. I would also like to say a big thank you to Coyle White Devine Solicitors whose name will be on the back of both kits for the forthcoming season.”
