Famous match team signs deal with top tackle manufacturer.
Black Horse now in Garbolino stable
Current London Winter League and Southern Canal League champions Black Horse have signed a sponsorship deal with top match brand Garbolino.
Following several successful years, the squad has completed the deal with the top tackle brand, which will see the team now called Garbolino Black Horse.
The move brings further high-hopes for the team, with a big emphasis on all-round success, not just on commercial venues, as team captain Graham Smith told Match Fishing.
“This is a really talented squad with much potential. We’ve had a great couple of years since reforming and won a number of big team titles, including two Nationals and three Eastern Region Shield wins. Most recently we won the Winter League Semi Final on the Grand Union Canal and finished a very creditable fifth in the recent Winter League Final at Milton Keynes,” said Graham.
“The squad’s really looking forward to working with Garbolino and getting access to some top quality gear to help us compete at the highest level.
“We’ve been really impressed with the range of products that we’ve had to date and it’s great to work with a company that still has a real interest in natural venues as well as commercials.
“We would also like to thank Fox Match and in particular Mark Pollard for their help over the last few years,” he added.
Garbolino UK boss Darren Cox is delighted about the tie-up, telling Match Fishing:
“We’re really pleased to link up with the team which will now be called Garbolino Black Horse, but I’d also like to thank Chiltern Baits who have made this deal possible. The team will be based out of Chiltern Baits. “This is not a group of individuals, it’s a real team and you can see by the success they’ve had already that they’re a force to be reckoned with. There are however some big names in the team who are persistent offenders when it comes to winning! We hope to utilise their all-round ability to keep in touch with all aspects of today’s match fishing, not just on commercials”.
