Star Signing Unveiled For 2016/17 Season at Ashton Gate…

Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol has revealed that local Michelin starred chef Josh Eggleton is partnering with the stadium’s hospitality team to provide Pony & Trap inspired menus on matchdays.

Building on his previous partnership with the Ashton Gate team for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Josh is joining up once again with executive head chef George Opondo, to provide platinum VIP Club Seat packages and box-holders with the ultimate matchday dining experience.

Chief of stadium operations, Mark Kelly said: “Having Josh Eggleton join us for the first season in the ‘new’ Ashton Gate Stadium is tremendously exciting. His passion for food and sport is fantastic and to have a chef of his calibre, on our doorstep, wanting to partner with us is a huge compliment.

“Despite his incredibly busy career Josh is taking time to be with us on the very first day of the football season (August 6th). He’s worked with George on designing the menus for our platinum package holders and our corporate boxes, providing premiership cuisine for Bristol City and Bristol Rugby fans.”

Josh Eggleton, Chef Patron at The Pony & Trap commented: “I’ve always had an association with sport in Bristol. My first job was selling programmes at Bristol Rugby for my dad’s printing business.

“Ashton Gate is designed to give customers a great hospitality experience and to be a national leader, something I fully support. We’re looking to create an excellent customer service and food experience for sports fans.”
