Rovers retain back-of-shirt sponsor

The club will continue to link up with Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors

2 July 2019

Rovers are delighted to secure Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors as our back-of-shirt sponsor for the 2019-20 season.

The local business, who specialise in a number of legal services, will once again be promoted on the back of Rovers’ home and away shirts used throughout our Championship campaign, beginning with our home game against Charlton Athletic on August 3rd.

Their logo will also be present on the back of adult replica shirts available to buy from the Roverstore and on the front of all Ladies shirts.

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.

Director Elton Ashworth, an avid Rovers supporter, is delighted to be continuing to link up with the club and is hoping for a bright future together for both parties.

“We’re extremely proud to continue to sponsor Rovers,” he said.

“As a life-long Rovers fan - along with many of our staff - having the Watson Ramsbottom name on the back of the shirt isn’t quite a substitute for having Ashworth number 10 on the back, but I think that may be the closest I’ll get!

“We look forward to sharing another rollercoaster ride with Rovers this season. Hopefully after the consolidation of last season, we can make the push to return to the Premier League where we belong.”

Rovers’ Chief Executive, Steve Waggott, added: “We are delighted that Watson Ramsbottom will remain on board as a corporate partner.

"The deal continues to generate vital commercial revenue for the club and also further reinforces our links within the local business community.

"As a club, engaging with local businesses is a very important aspect of our ongoing commercial strategy and we are very pleased that Watson Ramsbottom have identified the value that the club can bring to their brand by continuing our mutually beneficial working relationship.”
