We are the new sponsors of Southport FC!

We’re pleased to announce that we have signed a two year sponsorship deal with Southport FC. This includes sponsoring both the home and away Southport FC first team shirts, as well as all junior teams and replica shirts.

We have been long standings friends and supporters of Southport FC, having previously been Floodlight Sponsors and worked closely with the Trust in Yellow supporters group to help fund the fantastic new stadium floodlights.

We also have 2 branches in Southport – one on Princes Street and the other on Hoghton Street. Each of these provides the local, personal service you require with your insurance requirements coupled with competitive rates due to the size of their insurer panel. Both of these branches are open every weekday between the hours of 9am-5.30pm.

Charlie Clapham, Chairman of Southport FC, comments: “I have known the Directors and numerous staff from The County Group for several years now and they have always supported Southport FC well. I’m really pleased they have taken this to the next level and become 1st team shirt sponsors. They are the perfect partner for the club as they have 2 local branches with over 60 employees in the heart of Southport and can help our supporters with all of their insurance and mortgage requirements”.

“They are regulars at the club too which makes the partnership stronger. I’d encourage all supporters and local businesses to give The County Group the opportunity to quote for their insurance and I believe they are soon to introduce a supporter’s scheme which would give a small donation back to the supporters trust with every new policy”

What does our CEO, Dave Clapp have to say?

Dave Clapp, CEO of The County Group, adds “When the opportunity of becoming first team shirt sponsor of Southport came up, it was too good to miss. We have long standing roots in Southport and employ many local people, with expansion plans in the town too. We’re pleased we can push the County Insurance brand on the shirts and also this will help our County Financial Services office in Hoghton Street too, who provide life insurance and other protection products.”

“Southport FC is a great community club and we look forward to working with them closely over the next 2 years and attending many games. We wish them every success for the forthcoming season.”
