Norfolk County FA is delighted to announce the continuation of its partnership with Chaplin Farrant for the 23/24 season.

Chaplin Farrant, one of East Anglia’s leading multi-disciplinary architectural practices, has agreed to extend its partnership with Norfolk FA which will see it once again partner the Association’s annual Volunteer Awards as well as continuing its sponsorship of the Norfolk Sunday Senior Cup Competition for the 23/24 season.

Offering design, planning, engineering, cost consultancy and CDM services, Chaplin Farrant prides itself on providing responsive, innovative, client-focused and award-winning solutions for a wide range of sectors including commercial, residential, health, education, social, leisure and community.

Already a prominent figure in the Norfolk Football landscape, Chaplin Farrant has assisted in the design and delivery of numerous buildings and facilities within Norfolk, including Norfolk FA’s County Headquarters situated at The Football Development Centre [The FDC] in Norwich, as well as Norwich City Community Sport Foundation’s The Nest in Horsford and Aylsham FC’s Young’s Park.

With clients nationwide, Chaplin Farrant has also seen expansion across the Country within the last month, recently opening new offices in York. The northern expansion of Chaplin Farrant will allow the practice to service existing and potential new clients across Yorkshire, The Midlands, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and East Anglia.

Mark Camidge, Director and Architect at Chaplin Farrant said: "We are once again delighted to be able to continue to support the 2023 Norfolk FA Volunteer Awards. We have proudly supported this fantastic event since 2017 because we recognise the invaluable work that volunteers do to enable people to play ‘the beautiful game’.

On the practice’s recent expansion into York, Mark added: “We are looking forward to delivering exciting new projects using our extensive experience to bring the knowledge and design flair of Chaplin Farrant to new locations and clients.

“The base in York provides an ideal location from which to do this, and as well as our usual clients, we hope to be able to work with local grassroots and National League clubs up there in the same way we have in Norfolk over a number of years to support, develop and expand the offerings and facilities available.”

Matt Carpenter, Chief Executive of Norfolk FA said: “The established relationship we have enjoyed with Chaplin Farrant over the years has brought a host of benefits to us as the County’s Governing Body and to wider areas of Norfolk Football. The Team at Chaplin Farrant have a real enthusiasm for the game and in particular supporting at the grassroots level, evidenced by their sponsorship of our Sunday Senior County Cup competition.

“In addition, the Norfolk FA Volunteer Awards is an extremely important event in our calendar where we celebrate the incredible people that without whom football in our County would struggle to exist, as such we are extremely appreciative of Chaplin Farrant’s support in this vital area of our game.”

Rebecca Burton, Head of Marketing & Communications added: “We are grateful for the continued support of Chaplin Farrant and are delighted to relaunch the partnership for the 23/24 season. As an Association we strive to partner with organisations that have a passion for the grassroots game, and this continues to be proven through Chaplin Farrant’s desire to support multiple facets of Norfolk Football as well as efforts in expanding that support to other areas of the Country.”

The Norfolk FA Volunteer Awards supported by Chaplin Farrant will take place on Friday 29 September at The Space in Norwich. The First Round of the Chaplin Farrant Sunday Senior Cup is scheduled for Sunday 12 November.
