We are delighted to announce Scott Richards Solicitors as our new main partner of the 567s programme across Devon.
This agreement further strengthens the relationship between Scott Richards Solicitors and the Devon County Football Association as they have agreed to continue sponsoring two County Cups – the Veterans Cup and the Under 14 Youth Cup. It also sees Scott Richards become our first ever partner of the 567s programme.
Scott Richards Solicitors are a law firm with offices in Newton Abbot and Teignmouth. They were established 100 years ago this year, recently celebrating their Centenary year. From private matters such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, Trusts and Tax Planning to disputes, including family breakdown, employment and personal injury, they really can help you in all areas.
On this agreement, Jamie Dyson Managing Partner at Scott Richards had this to say, “Having played local football for many years, I have found it is the basis for a lot of friendships and community relationships. People from all walks of life get together to enjoy watching, supporting and participating in the sport from the very young to the elderly. It is an inclusive sport and one that can bring people together. Over the past few years, we have sponsored various teams, people, and clubs/organisations to assist with them continuing in their pursuits and achieving their goals. We have enjoyed and received so much from football that as a firm we like to give something back and sponsoring the 567s league (as well as a couple of the County Cups and DFL Cup) is a great way to assist the Devon FA in continuing to provide a platform for people to play, watch and enjoy the sport all over Devon.”
Jakebir Ramday, Football Development Officer – Youth and Adult Male commented, "It is such a privilege to have Scott Richards sponsoring our 567s programme. With leagues up and down the county our aim now is to expand and grow the programme to new venues. Their very generous contribution will not only help us in delivering our targets but also to provide prizes for our competing teams."
Matt Barrett, Commercial Officer, added “We love working with Jamie, Matt and the team at Scott Richards Solicitors. They are so passionate about football at all levels that it makes for a really exciting and engaging relationship between the two parties. We are delighted that the partnership has grown and that it can now make a difference to even more players across Devon.”
Our 567s programme is very popular; running at a number of sites across the County. There are currently leagues based at Paignton Academy, Plympton, Manadon Sports Hub and at Coach Road, but we are always looking to expand into other areas.
