Marcus Worthington Sponsorship

Date: 21 November 2013

Main Match Sponsor

On Saturday, the Main Match sponsor is one of the Club’s main sponsors, the Marcus Worthington Group who have had a long association with Grasshoppers and were the contractors responsible for the development of the extended Dooley Suite and addition of the Wiseman Room in 1991.

Worthington Group

Established over the last three decades as a leading contractor in commercial construction, the Company has an exemplary reputation for standards of excellence. The group comprises four elements – Properties, Construction, Investment and a residential arm, Hollinwood Homes.

Heading up the party today is the eponymous Marcus Worthington who is the chief executive of the Group, having originally founded the company in 1975. He will be supported by Commercial Director, Jim Coleman and we wish that all Company representatives and their guests enjoy the afternoon.

Match Ball Sponsor

In addition to the main match sponsors we also welcome Aegis as our match ball sponsor for the day.

Man of the Match Sponsor

Finally we are also pleased to be hosting Thornber & Walker as our man of the match sponsor. The following words are from Charles Nixon from Thronber & Walker.

”This is our second time we have been involved in some Hoppers Match sponsorship (Caldy last year). We had such a good time then that we wanted to do it again.

We are Chartered Quantity Surveyors, been in Preston for over 40 years so are well known in the local construction related business community. Coincidentally on Saturday our sister company, Aegis, are also sponsors and we have worked regularly with the main match sponsor, Marcus Worthington.

Our history with Hoppers extends to employees who were past players to project managing the recent resurfacing of the overspill car park and providing cost advice for the possible ground relocation currently under consideration.”

We look forward to welcoming all 3 companies, their employees, clients and guests to Lightfoot Green for what should be a great afternoon!
