Wessex Fire & Security Ltd has become the new headline sponsor of Shaftesbury Football Club for the next three seasons.

The Shaftesbury-based company officially launched the new Wessex Stand at the club’s brand new 3G ground with Steve Coffen, Shaftesbury FC’s Chairman.

An active business in the community, Wessex Fire & Security supports a number of charities and organisations in the local area.

It is also a leading provider of fire and security services for numerous homes and businesses across the south west.

Lawrence Yeo, Operations Manager, said: “The new stand looks fantastic.

“We are really pleased to be sponsors of the club, especially as many of us are keen supporters of the team.

“We look forward to the next three seasons ahead and wish all the teams the very best of luck.”

Russell Miles, Service Delivery Manager, added: “For us this sponsorship was a natural fit.

“We share the same values and work ethic – as well as love for the town and its people.

“It’s great to see our name on the stand and to be involved with the club.”

Steve Coffen said: “This is a brilliant fit for our great club.

“Wessex Fire & Security are well known to us and the area and we are delighted to have them onboard.

“This is a good example of how our club and the support from local businesses can be aligned for the benefit of the local community.”
