Flint Bishop News
Continuing its commitment to local sport, Derby solicitors Flint Bishop is sponsoring Melbourne RFC.
The Club currently has over three Senior sides, a Colts side, 300 Mini and Junior players and three girls’ sides. It is not only looking forward to a strong season on the playing front but also a £2.5 million pound project for a new clubhouse, changing rooms and playing facilities that should be completed for the 2014/15 season.
Flint Bishop, which has a long-standing commitment to supporting its local sporting community, already sponsors Derby County Football Club, Derbyshire County Cricket Club and Bradley Netball Team in Ashbourne, amongst others.
It also supports Derby youth charity, Sporting Futures, which helps disadvantaged youngsters increase their confidence, teamwork skills and future prospects through sport.
It has been very keen to sponsor Melbourne Rugby Club for some time and seized the opportunity when offered.
Flint Bishop Partner, Andrew Cochrane says: “We are delighted to support Melbourne Rugby Club which is a further sign of our commitment and involvement with local sporting clubs and societies.”
Chairman of Melbourne Rugby Club, Peter Ilott says: “Melbourne RFC would like to thank Derby solicitors, Flint Bishop, for their agreement to sponsor MRFC. The contribution will enable MRFC to continue to strive to perform at the highest level possible after the successful 2012-2013 season. The 1st XV achieved a promotion and cup double last year, and now play at the highest level in the club’s history. The kind donation will certainly help towards covering coaching and playing costs of the club.”
