Harrison Drury backs Hoppers in shirt sponsorship deal

North West law firm Harrison Drury has increased its backing for local sports clubs after agreeing a shirt sponsorship deal with Preston Grasshoppers.

The firm has committed to the main ‘front-of-shirt’ sponsorship for the next three years which means the Harrison Drury logo will adorn the players’ shirts during the club’s 150th year in the 2019-20 season.

Harrison Drury has strong links to Preston Grasshoppers with several of its directors and staff, including executive chairman John Chesworth and director Owen McKenna, having played for the first team.

The firm has also been a longstanding ‘Friends of Hoppers’ sponsor and supporter of the Mini Hoppers.

John Chesworth, said: “We support Hoppers because it’s a great club that provides opportunities for young people and offers many other benefits to the community.

“It’s made us incredibly proud to see our logo on the front of the Hoppers shirt. The firm has long cultural ties with the club and becoming the shirt sponsor was the next natural step in increasing our support.”

Richard Ellis, general manager at Preston Grasshoppers, said: “We’re extremely grateful for the support Harrison Drury has showed the club over the years, whether that’s been sponsoring matches and getting involved in our community work, or providing legal advice on major projects.

“This latest sponsorship deal with Harrison Drury contributes towards our long-term financial stability as we prepare to celebrate our 150th anniversary next year.”

The Harrison Drury-sponsored shirts will be worn by the club’s first and second teams for all 30 of their respective fixtures in each of the next three seasons.

Meanwhile, Harrison Drury has also agreed a deal to become the back of shorts sponsor for AFC Fylde this season, another club it has close connections with.

Harrison Drury has long been a supporter of grass roots sport and has current sponsorship arrangements with a number of local teams.

These include Bolton RUFC, Vale of Lune RUFC, Kendal RUFC, Typhoons RUFC, Garstang Football Club, Clitheroe Football Club, Fulwood and Broughton Cricket Club, Garstang Sports and Social Club, and Great Eccleston Bowling Club.
