NORFOLK VETERANS LEAGUE GAINS NEW SPONSOR
The Norfolk FA Veterans League was formed in 2010 and has enjoyed a highly successful period to date, resulting in its growth to five divisions and the introduction of a League Cup competition.
Teams from across the County play in what will now be known as The One Broker Veterans League thanks to regional insurance firm, One Broker Ltd, becoming Norfolk FA’s Official Insurance Partner and supporter of grassroots football.
On Sunday 12 January, Thetford Town faced Cringleford in the One Broker Veterans League Premiership and One Broker’s Commercial Account Executive, Ian Stone, was present alongside League Secretary, Thomas Constance to launch the sponsorship (picture above). Cringleford took the lead through Jordan Blyth in the first half and missed chances to extend their lead before the break. Thetford equalised deep into the Second Half when their number 9 rounded the Cringleford goalkeeper and slotted home from a tight angle. Both sides had chances to win the game late on but it finished 1-1.
Norfolk FA Chief Executive, Gavin Lemmon said: “We’re really excited to announce this new partnership with One Broker. Not only are the organisation providing valuable support to us and the development of the local game, they are presenting a real opportunity for Norfolk clubs to be proactive in supporting their own sustainability, via simple promotion of insurance products that ultimately everybody needs.”
Sean Clark, Group Managing Director of One Broker said: “One Broker is delighted to be partnering with Norfolk County FA including sponsoring the Veterans league. We look forward to helping Norfolk FA deliver its objective to increase football participation across Norfolk.”
One Broker Veterans League Chairman, Matt Carpenter added: “It’s fantastic to have One Broker become our new league sponsor. Veterans' football is a real growth area of the game and we hope that continues for many seasons to come. Having One Broker on board will enable us to continue to support and develop football for the over 35’s in Norfolk, with all of the benefits that brings.”
