Legal partnership renewed with Somerset County Cricket Club
We are delighted to have renewed our partnership with Somerset County Cricket Club (SCCC) for the upcoming season, and will remain as the club’s Preferred Legal Partner.
We have a long-running relationship with SCCC, having provided the club with legal advice for over 30 years.
In addition to the main club partnership, we sponsor the SCCC Academy which supports young people in developing their cricket skills and provides a link between the two parties, enabling Academy players to carry out work placements with Clarke Willmott.
Chris Thorne, Partner and Head of the Taunton office, commented: “We are delighted to have renewed our long-standing partnership with Somerset County Cricket Club. The club is at the heart of our community and the chance for people to engage with first class sport right on our own doorstep this summer will be more welcome than ever, as a distraction from the recent difficult times.”
Caroline Herbert, Commercial Director for Somerset County Cricket Club, said: “We are delighted that Clarke Willmott has renewed its partnership with Somerset CCC for another year coming on board as our Preferred Legal Partner once again. We have worked together for a number of years through sponsorship, advertising and by utilising Clarke Willmott’s legal services.
“Clarke Willmott’s additional support of the Academy in 2020 and 2021 demonstrates how much they value, not only the professional side of the cricket club, but also its future players and youngsters with an interest in cricket. Clarke Willmott will once again be a proud and visible presence at The Cooper Associates County Ground at all of our matches this summer.”
