One of the North West’s leading law firms, Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers, are backing Latics having secured a sponsorship deal with the club.
The Oldham-based firm, which can trace its roots back to 1874 when Charles Clegg founded the original practice have agreed a deal which includes matchday sponsors and corporate hospitality for the game against York in January, LED perimeter advertising, programme and social media coverage.
Pearson Solicitors offer a complete range of legal and financial services to private and commercial clients from three offices in North Manchester, namely Oldham, Hollinwood and Failsworth.
Director and Practice Manager Joanne Ormston said: “We’ve been watching the coverage of OAFC with much interest and there are a number of die-hard Latics fans in our Oldham, Hollinwood and Failsworth offices.
“There was a keen desire across the firm to back the club and the Directors at Pearson were only too willing to support this.
“Although we act for clients both regionally and nationally, we are a local firm at heart and, where we can, we will support local businesses and charities alike. We have similar values to Frank and the club which is to make Oldham stand out from the crowd and to give back where you can.”
Latics CEO Darren Royle said: “Pearson Solicitors are very much seen as a community player and their passion for Oldham businesses and its people truly echoes the beliefs of OAFC. Investment is key for the success of the club and we are thrilled to have Pearson on board.”
Both the club and Pearson have been busy with recruitment, and it has taken a while to co-ordinate diaries. A photoshoot has now taken place at the club with Darren Royle, Joanne Ormston and Chris Burke, Director and Head of Commercial Litigation at Pearson who were joined by centre forwards Timmy Abraham and Mike Fondop.
