Club ties knot on sponsorship deal with historic Bourton Hall.

Bourton and Frankton Football and Cricket Club have secured a sponsorship deal with neighbouring historic country house venue Bourton Hall.

The 2020-21 football season may have been disrupted by Covid and the current cricket season is being affected by various restrictions, but we have been busy behind the scenes by forming a partnership with the prestigious 18th century venue nearby.

Bourton Hall is part of Country House Weddings Limited, a family-owned and run wedding venue group that has six exclusive-use venues across the UK.  The venue, which is also based in the village of Bourton-on-Dunsmore, have committed an undisclosed financial sum to the village club to assist them in further improving the playing and training facilities for both the football and cricket sections.

In return, Bourton and Frankton FC and CC will promote Bourton Hall on their football leisurewear and cricket playing shirts, along with display banners at the club’s Main Street ground and a regular programme of coverage and promotion across this website and our social media platforms of Facebook and Twitter

Speaking about the sponsorship agreement, Bourton and Frankton Chairman, Malcolm Smith, said

“It is very good news that a new and developing local business has expressed an interest and desire to support the club. We hope that as the present difficulties subside both Bourton Hall and our club are able to get back on track and enjoy our respective interests.

Nick Bramer, Director & Co-Owner of Country House Weddings, said;

“We’re excited to be able to support such a long-standing grass-roots sports club as we recognise the benefits such initiatives can bring to the local community. Our company strives to develop mutually beneficial relationships with the communities where our wedding venues are located – In Bourton-on-Dunsmore, we are privileged to take on the ownership of one of the area’s most prestigious halls and, in return, we are confident that this sponsorship agreement will be the first of many & varied benefits that our business will bring to the local area & people”   

Smith added,

“The Football and Cricket Club appreciate the support we have received and hope we can develop this relationship for our mutual benefit going forwards”.

All smiles at Presentation Evening

Bourton and Frankton FC and CC looked back on something of a disruptive year on the field and a positive one off it at the club’s Annual Presentation Evening on Friday night.

Held this year by kind arrangement at local hospitality venue Dunsmore House, club members and officials gathered together to reflect on something of a stop-start football season in the Coventry Alliance Football League thanks to the pandemic. For the second season running the lockdown restrictions saw the season abandoned and delcared null and void – league table at the time of season ending HERE

Despite the 2020/21 league season being curtailed, B & F were entered into the Peter Toogood internal cup when restrictions were eased. Unfortunately the side did not make it through the group stages to the knockout rounds, but there was at least some satisfaction by finishing the season on a high with a victory (over Yelvertoft).

From the club’s cricket side, the 2020 season of friendlies suffered a two month delay and only started in July once clearance was given by the ECB.
