Norfolk FA Marketing & Communications Manager, Rebecca Burton added: “Our first season in partnership with Ashtons Legal hasn’t exactly been what we’d planned when concerning on pitch activity, however with what’s been a disjointed season due the pandemic, we’ve still been able to have a fantastic relationship utilising their legal services which are second to none.

For Ashtons to now extend their support from not just sponsoring the Senior Cup, but also the Junior Cup too, shows exactly what kind of an organisation they are and why we’re proud to be their partners.”
