Harrison Drury has thrown its support behind Chorley FC after announcing a sponsorship deal for the 2018-2019 season.
The deal with the club includes sponsorship of assistant manager Andy Preece for the season as well as match sponsor for the home game against Kidderminster Harriers on March 9, 2019.
Sponsorship status with Chorley FC also includes membership of their Magpies Business Club, a networking group for club partners and sponsors.
With a long history in football dating back to the late 1800s Chorley FC currently play in the Vanarama National League North, and regularly attracts around 1,500 supporters to their home matches.
Harrison Drury solicitors James Dickinson and Matthew Astley, who jointly head up the firm’s sports sector team, manage the relationship with the football club.
James said: “One of our corporate values is making it possible for our community, so we are keen to make sure this includes helping local sports teams. Chorley FC is a team on the up, with a good local following, so they were an obvious choice for our sports sector team to team up with.”
Commercial manager at Chorley FC, Josh Vosper said: “We’re delighted to welcome Harrison Drury as sponsors. After meeting Matt and James and the sports sector team at their Winckley Square office, I could tell they have a passion for supporting people and the game.”
He added: “Gaining business sponsors of this calibre demonstrates how much we are growing as a club with an increasingly recognisable brand in the local area. We pride ourselves at Chorley FC on building partnerships with businesses not only from Chorley but across the region.
“Securing Harrison Drury as a sponsor and a member of The Magpies Business Club, is a successful example of this strategy.”
