A WORCESTERSHIRE law firm has signed a prestigious deal with one of the county's popular football teams.

Mfg Solicitors is backing Kidderminster Harriers’ bid for promotion glory with a new sponsorship deal.

The county firm has joined the 131-year-old club at a crucial time as it fights for promotion from the National League North, following a play-off spot last term.

The one-year deal will see Mfg sponsor the floodlight boards around the pitch at the 6,400 capacity Aggborough Stadium.

Staff at the law firm will also be working with the club on other commercial opportunities.

Tom Esler, partner and head of marketing at Mfg Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to support Harriers as they strive to bring league football back to Kidderminster.

“As two businesses with a long history in the town we are very much looking forward to the relationship ahead and will do all we can to support the club.

“The club is developing both on and off the pitch and with a new stadium potentially being built in the next few years, it’s a really exciting time for the club and its supporters.

"We wish John Eustace and the team all the best for the rest of the season.”

Bill Redwood, commercial project manager at Kidderminster Harriers, added: “Links with local businesses are vital for the club.

"I am delighted that Mfg Solicitors have officially joined us as a sponsor.

“They have always been long term supporters of the club but this deal takes that special relationship another step forward."

The deal is the latest good news for Mfg which earlier this year won the professional discipline award at the Worcestershire Law Society awards.

A record 36 lawyers from Mfg Solicitors were also named in the 2017 Legal 500, the profession's prestigious referral guide.
