Date: 02 October 2012

This coming Saturday Preston Grasshoppers are delighted to welcome Harrison Drury Solicitors to Lightfoot Green as main match sponsors for the 1st XV game against Birmingham Solihull, kick off 2.30pm.

Hoppers have many connections with Harrison Drury and we caught up with ex 1st XV captain and managing partner of Harrison Drury, John Chesworth, ahead of Saturday to ask him a few questions.

What connections do Harrison Drury have to Preston Grasshoppers?

Connections started when I joined the firm in on 1 January 2007.
Thereafter, George Erdozain, the Club Chairman joined the firm as a
consultant later in 2007. We were then joined in 2009 by Owen McKenna
in March 2009. The firm has sponsored the Hoppers since 2007.

Why are Harrison Drury interested in sponsoring a Hoppers game?

HD have some very strong connections with the Hoppers, as referred to
above and are committed to support the club not only in the success of
the senior teams, but also the continuing success of the mini-junior
section which I joined in 1980 aged 8! The match day hospitality
provides a great opportunity to catch up with our clients and business
contacts in a relaxed environment and helps us build and maintain
valuable relationships.

What services do Harrison Drury offer?

Harrison Drury offers legal services to businesses and individuals. For businesses
we can help guide our clients through the maze of employment
legislation, assist when a dispute arises quite often over non-payment,
advise when businesses are looking to merge or someone is buying a
business, assist when leasing or buying commercial premises, and also
advise on health and safety and environmental legislation if an
inspector calls. For individuals, we provide legal services when
buying or selling a home, we have a very experienced family law team to
assist where there is family break down and divorce, and our wills and
probate team help our clients plan for the care of those close to them
after they have passed away.

What would you say to anybody interested in sponsoring a Hoppers

Do it. Hoppers sponsorship is a great way to spend time with your
clients and business contacts, and on past experience you get to see
some great rugby as well.

Finally, your prediction for Saturday’s game?

I am very much hoping for a Hoppers win and looking at the respective
track records of the two teams this season, that should be on the cards.
Hoppers have the fire power to put a lot of points on the board, but
need to patch up a slightly leaky defence. I am going to go for a
Hoppers win 33 – 17.

We wish John, his colleagues and their clients and guests a great day at the Hoppers on Saturday.
