Westcotts backs Bridgwater United for second season

Leading South West Chartered Accountants and business advisers, Westcotts, this week announced their continued sponsorship of Ellie Mitchell, goalkeeper for Bridgwater United FC Women’s team for the 2023/24 season.

Westcotts will be continuing to sponsor Ellie for the new season, which will support her and the club with equipment, match day and training costs.

Supporting the local community in which the team live and work is integral to Westcotts’ values. Westcotts has several offices across Somerset, including in Bridgwater, Somerton, Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea.

On the day the country watched the Lionesses historic participation in the World Cup Final (20th August), the Bridgwater United team faced Exeter City Women on their home turf. Westcotts was delighted to also be matchday sponsor, which saw Exeter City triumph with a 5-1 win. Jenna Markham, trainee at Westcotts’ Axminster office, was spotted scoring the Grecians fourth goal, in the second half!

Sarah Murray, Bridgwater United WFC Chairwoman, said: “We are extremely grateful for the continued support from Westcotts to both the Club and the women’s game, through matchday and player sponsorship.

“As a club we continue to ‘support local’ in our mission to work with like-minded, community focused organisations which will play a huge part in achieving our ambitions on and off the pitch.”

Kelly Davies (pictured with Ellie), Partner at the Bridgwater and Somerton office, said: “We are extremely proud to be continuing to sponsor Ellie Mitchell at Bridgwater United FC this year. Supporting women’s football and inspiring young girls to participate in the sport is very important to us.

“The club has been a key part of the community since it was founded in 1990 and we are delighted to be playing a small part in continuing its growth.”
