Smith & Graham Extend Pools Partnership

Long-standing partners Smith & Graham have re-affirmed their commitment to Hartlepool United by penning a new three-year deal to remain as stand sponsors at Victoria Park.

The local law firm have been in partnership with Pools since back in 2011 and have this week pledged their ongoing support to the Club and its fans.

It means that the Smith & Graham branding will continue to adorn the Rink End Stand at The Vic as they became the latest business in the town to back the Club’s efforts to regain a place in the EFL.

“We are really pleased to renew the deal,” explained Senior Partner, Martin Scarborough.

“With the team going down last season, this is the time that local businesses like ourselves should be showing support to the Football Club.

“It is crucial that we all do what we can to help the Club to try and get back in to the Football League.

“I think it’s important for the town that we have a strong, thriving Club and hopefully this new three-year deal will help towards achieving that.

“This partnership has been growing in strength since 2011 and it offers a great profile for Smith & Graham to have all three sides of Victoria Park seeing our details on the Stand on matchday – it’s brilliant.”

As part of the new deal, Smith & Graham have extended the Pools Law initiative which means Pools fans can continue to claim a 10% discount on legal services and secure a 5% commission for the Club too.

“For me, it’s so humbling that Smith & Graham have stood by the Club,” Chairman Pam Duxbury commented.

“It’s been fantastic to see so many business partners standing by us and we are very grateful for that support as we look to drive this Club back forward.

“Smith & Graham are long-term partners of the Club and it’s brilliant that we can look forward to working with them closely to the benefit of our supporters over the coming three years and beyond.”
