Rovers are delighted to announce that local business Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors are continuing their support of the club by becoming the front of shirt sponsor for Rovers Ladies throughout the 2018-19 season.
Watson Ramsbottom's branding will be on the front of both home and away shirts for the Gemma Donnelly's team, whilst continuing to be on the back of the men’s team shirt.
Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors provide assistance in a wide variety of areas which include property, personal injury, family matters, wills, probates and much more, and have offices across the East Lancashire area, with branches in Blackburn, Darwen, Great Harwood and Accrington, where they employ over 90 local people.
Stuart Maher, Director and Solicitor, is delighted to be extending the local organisation's links with the club and is hoping for a bright future together for both parties.
“We’re a high street practice and the deal represents a first for us through shirt sponsorship,” he said.
"There are plenty of Rovers fans working for us and we’re all delighted to join forces with the club. The club have the makings and the mentality to get to the very top after an unfortunate ruling effectively denied them promotion last year.
“It’s a club on the rise and we are hoping our partnership can help the team to build on the success from last season where the Ladies won an unprecedented treble; triumphing in the FA Women’s Premier League Cup, Lancashire FA Women’s Challenge Cup and the FA Women’s Premier League Northern Division which was retained for a second season.
"We are proud to be both associated and sponsoring Blackburn Rovers Ladies in their efforts for the 2018-2019 season. Through the sponsorship, we are delighted that we can support the aims of the team going forward.
"This is an excellent opportunity to support both Ladies football and football within our local area. We all wish the Ladies all the best for the season!"
Rovers Ladies Chief Gemma Donnelly is thrilled with the link-up, saying: "It's brilliant that we will have a front of shirt sponsor for what we hope will be another successful campaign.
"This will be our second successive season of having a sponsor and we're thrilled to be backed by a local business in Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors.
"We thank them for their support, and of course we will be aiming to do them proud during the campaign."
