Birds Put The Icing On The Cake

by Peter Scherer

Mickleover FC are proud to announce a new partnership with local Bakery company Birds.

Formed in 1919 by three brothers Frank, Thomas and Reginald Bird, the company has been well established on the Derbyshire High Streets over the last 100 years for their Bread, cakes and savouries.

Birds and Mickleover will be working in partnership to help the local community, in a deal agreed after an initial approach from the football club.

It was Birds that came up with idea of Belgian chocolate lollies in a Mickleover FC presentation box that will be on sale from this Saturday at Birds in Mickleover Village. The price will be £1 per lolly with 15p plus any single use plastic levy going to club funds. In addition to this Birds will be providing raffle prizes for our Supporter’s Lottery.

I am thrilled and like to thank everyone at Birds for their help and support, I think we are all trying to bring Mickleover together at these difficult times

said Mickleover chairman Don Amott.
