OXFORD: Grafton Group-owned Plumbase has joined sister merchant Buildbase to sponsor Oxford United Football Club's away-game shirts.

Tom McElkerney, Plumbase managing director, said: "This is a good marketing opportunity for us. Our customers enjoy their football, as do many of our staff."

Buildbase is the club's longest continuous sponsor, starting in 2001 and sponsors the home shirts. The Plumbase away kit's first outing is an evening fixture at Kettering on 11 August.
