The Derbyshire-based destruction-to-construction specialists are no strangers to supporting grassroots football in this county. Just last season, they sponsored the highly successful Derbyshire County Cups competitions, as they returned after a 3-year hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This season, Cawarden have continued to offer their support to Derbyshire FA, reconfirming themselves as the Derbyshire County Cups sponsor for the second season running, as well as becoming the new official partner of Derbyshire FA’s 140th Year.
This new partnership means that Cawarden will be the headline sponsor for all Derbyshire FA events for the duration of the 2023/24 season – the County FA’s 140th year in operation. This partnership will launch at the Derbyshire FA Grassroots Football Awards Night 2023, hosted at Pride Park Stadium on Friday 15th September 2023.
Ricky Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer at Derbyshire FA, said:
“It’s fantastic to have Cawarden on board again this season. We are two Derbyshire-based businesses with aligned values, and this partnership really enables us to excel in the delivery of our mission to change lives through football in our county. This year is an extremely important one for us here at Derbyshire FA, and we’re immensely proud to be entering our 140th year since our inception all the way back in 1883. It’s something we really want to celebrate, and with Cawarden’s support, the sky is the limit.
"It’s also brilliant that Cawarden will continue to sponsor the Derbyshire County Cups this season. Last year, the return of prestigious County Cups went down really well, and we can’t wait to make them even better this time around with the support of Cawarden.”
William Crooks, Managing Director at Cawarden, said:
“We are thrilled to announce our continued commitment to supporting grassroots football, following the great success of our sponsorship deal for the Derbyshire FA County Cups during the 2022/23 season. Our support will not only extend to the 2023/24 County Cups, but we are also excited to reveal that Cawarden will take on the role of Headline Partner, in honour of Derbyshire FA's 140th year.
“This is a very special year, and we are proud to align ourselves with an organisation that shares our values of supporting local communities. Football is an integral part of community life, and we are delighted to continue our support for Derbyshire football. There are many exciting plans in store for this celebratory year, and we look forward to an exciting season ahead!”
