DWF Solicitors are an established and respected national practice with offices in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Preston and Newcastle, employing over 1400 people throughout the UK.  Leading law firm, DWF Solicitors, deals in all aspects of business law from corporate and commercial, private client and family law to finance and restructuring, insurance, litigation, employment and pension’s law.

Commercial and General Manager, Bill Roberts, confirmed the details of the new deal and expressed his satisfaction that the Club has been able to build this working relationship with such a respected and renowned national company:

“We’re delighted to welcome DWF Solicitors on board as a new sponsor and look forward to working with them. They’re new sponsors to the Club, and were originally looking to sponsor our Minis and Junior Section. However, the company has decided that it will be sponsoring a general Club deal this season, and will hopefully be sponsoring the juniors as well next year.”

DWF for its part is equally pleased with the new deal and is looking forward to building a long-term relationship with the Club. David Pickering, DWF’s National Head Private Client and Family Group commented on the new deal:

“For some time now, we’ve been looking to partner and support a successful local organisation whose values mirrored those of our own. After looking at various options, and having since had the opportunity to talk to the General Manager, Bill Roberts, we’ve concluded that Macclesfield Rugby Club represents an ideal fit.  The Club epitomises our ethos. Its progressive and is proud of its efforts in encouraging and developing its own people [on and off the pitch] and being ingrained in the local community.”

“This year we’ll be supporting the Club by way of advertising on the ground [under the new scoreboard actually], in the programme and on the website, sponsoring the match ball and the hosting of a number of match day hospitality functions in the Presidents Suite. We’ve discussed with Bill our desire to support and get involved with the junior section as recognition of the magnificent effort and commitment that the Club and its people put into this area. The enjoyment that this creates is visible on the faces of the children and parents each Sunday morning, but equally important is the part it plays in the longer term personal development of the youngsters.”
