A new signing is set to be the perfect prescription for Rovers as the club benefits from an innovative sponsorship deal.
Rovers have secured a sponsor for the club’s medical team. This will see locally-based private medical insurance specialist Chase Templeton backing the six-strong squad of medics and physios.
The move means club doctor Amit Pannu and head of sports medicine Dave Fevre will now wear Chase Templeton branded kit as they tend to injured players on the pitch. The stretcher at Ewood Park will also bear the logo of the company which, with over 35,000 corporate and individual clients, is one of the UK’s leading private medical insurance intermediaries.
“It’s great that Chase Templeton have dug deep to back their local club in what is clearly quite an unusual sponsorship deal,” commented manager Gary Bowyer. “Our medical team play an absolutely vital role in maintaining the peak fitness and swift recovery from injury of the squad, much of it behind the scenes, so it’s great that they’re receiving such recognition and support.”
Warren Dickson, chief executive officer at Lower Darwen headquartered Chase Templeton, said he was delighted the company had been able to pledge its support. “It’s an absolute privilege to be able to support Rovers, a club which lies right at the heart of the community here in Blackburn. We hope this sponsorship deal is just the first of many as we look to develop a deeper, long-term relationship with one of the country’s oldest yet most forward-thinking clubs.”
