Harrison Drury unveiled as new shirt sponsor

Date: 21 August 2018

Hoppers are delighted to announce that local law firm Harrison Drury – a longstanding supporter of the club – has agreed to become our shirt sponsor.

The firm has committed to the main ‘front-of-shirt’ sponsorship for the next three years which includes our 150th anniversary year in the 2019-20 season.

Many Hoppers supporters will be aware of Harrison Drury’s strong links to the club with several of its directors and staff, including John Chesworth and Owen McKenna, having previously played for the first team.

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

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.
