Hampshire law firm, Warner Goodman LLP, are proud to announce they are a sponsor for Portsmouth Football Club’s Academy to send two teams to the Trophee De L’entente!
The Club will be entering 28 players across the Under 10’s and Under 11’s teams for the tournament, which runs from 30th March to 2nd April. “The Club has not been able to send a team to the tournament since 2010, so we are delighted to be able to help them realise the opportunity to attend,” explains Paul Winslade, Residential Conveyancing Partner at the firm.
Portsmouth Football Club was granted Academy status at the beginning of the 2007/08 season and since then they have seen huge success as a side as well as individual players. The Academy management team are passionate about the benefits being able to attend the PISA World Cup will bring, as it helps players improve their competitive performance, work on their own personal development at a young age, as well as bring life experience through travelling and playing abroad.
Anna Mitchell, Commercial Director at Portsmouth FC, said: “We are extremely grateful to Warner Goodman LLP for their generosity in helping to sponsor this trip. As a club with a strong community ethos, it is fantastic to see local businesses showing their support.”
Paul concludes, “At Warner Goodman we are passionate about supporting the local community and regularly take part in fundraising activities and events, both on and offline, to promote local organisations and charities. As a Portsmouth FC fan, I am personally delighted we are supporting the players of the future, and we send our good luck with them on their travels in the hope they can bring home the trophy!”
