Spotlight on: Clarke Willmott

Clarke Willmott and Somerset County Cricket Club have forged a strong partnership over a number of years.

Clarke Willmott have been the Club’s preferred legal partner since 2015, and in the last 12 months this partnership has grown and evolved to see the national law firm, which has offices in seven locations in England including Taunton, playing an important role in our player Pathway.

This new amendment to the current two-year agreement will see Clarke Willmott LLP become an Official SCCC Academy Partner Sponsor.

The aim of the SCCC Academy is to identify young cricketers who have the potential to play at the highest level. Alongside the sporting element of the Academy, the Club also provide a comprehensive development programme which is designed to ensure that the young players fulfil their potential both on and off the field.

Amongst other things, this updated partnership will create a link between the two parties which will enable SCCC Academy players to carry out work placements with Clarke Willmott. The company logo also appears on the Academy playing and training kits.

After announcing the amended partnership earlier this year SCCC Commercial Sales Director, Suzanne Roper said: “Over the years we have developed an outstanding working relationship with Clarke Willmott. They have been providing legal advice to the Club for over 30 years and we hope they will carry on doing so for many years to come. This new agreement will be of real benefit to us both.

“The Academy is a vital element of the Club and will provide us with the stars of the future. The fact that Clarke Willmott are genuinely taking an active interest in the development of our young players is outstanding.”

Somerset is Clarke Willmott’s historic home where they have had a presence for over 125 years.

Their Taunton office is their second largest, and their solicitors provide legal advice to individuals and businesses. They are particularly known for their agriculture, debt recovery and private client expertise, and are Somerset County Cricket Club’s preferred legal partner.
