On Saturday we will be delighted to welcome Harrison Drury to Preston Grasshoppers as the Main Match Sponsor for the 1st XV game with Sheffield Tigers.

Harrison Drury are long time supporters of the club and we are pleased they have continued this support into the 2016/17 as a Main Match Sponsor. Ahead of the game we asked some questions of Harrison Drury to find out more about the business.

Who are Harrison Drury and what services do you offer?

Harrison Drury is an award winning regional law firm providing legal services to businesses and individuals across Lancashire and Cumbria

What makes Harrison Drury unique as a law firm?

We believe that the service a law firm can give to its clients depends on its ability to attract and retain the best people.  In 2016 we achieved the accolade of being listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 Small Companies to work for, ranking at No 38 in our first year of entry.  We believe this shows our dedication to looking after our people so they can take care of our clients.

Why should Hoppers members consider using Harrison Drury?

At Harrison Drury, we employ a dynamic workforce who are focussed on understanding our client’s objectives and delivering them.  In order to help Hoppers and its members who use our firm, we will donate 5% of fees paid back to the club in addition to a 5% discount to the member off their fees.

What connections do Harrison Drury have with Preston Grasshoppers?

Our Managing Director, John Chesworth, first played for the club aged 8 years old in 1980 and represented the First XV from 1990 to 2003.  John still serves on the club’s management committee.  Another director Owen McKenna is also a former First XV player, and George Erdozain, a consultant with Harrison Drury is an ex-player, former President and the current Chair of the management committee.  Harrison Drury is also a founding member and regular contributor to the Hoppers Business Network and also a main sponsor of the Hoppers Rollers cycling club.

What factors made Harrison Drury sponsor a Preston Grasshoppers 1st XV game?

We are committed to supporting community sport in the locations where we operate, and there is no finer example of this than Preston Grasshoppers.   In recent years the club has become a great place to meet business contacts in a fun and enjoyable environment.

What is your prediction for the game on Saturday with Sheffield Tigers?

While the Tigers sit above Hoppers in the league with 2 more wins, I think Hoppers can get their show back on the road this weekend and predict a Hoppers win.

We look forward to welcoming the employees, clients and guests of Harrison Drury to Lightfoot Green on Saturday and hope they have a great day.
