Supporting the Club throughout 2019-2020
Main Club Sponsor
Irwin Mitchell is unlike any other law firm. Nationally acclaimed, with a strong international capability, we offer a broad range of legal services to national and international organisations and institutions, small and medium-sized businesses and private individuals. The firm was founded in 1912 by Walter Irwin Mitchell. With a concentration on criminal law, he aimed to provide the highest quality legal services to the general public from his small legal practice in Sheffield.
Today, Irwin Mitchell is the 11th largest law firm in the UK with one of the five largest Private Wealth teams in the country, operating out of 14 UK offices including a consulting office in Middlesbrough. We currently employ over 2,500 members of staff, including over 1,000 legally trained personnel and have helped over one million clients in our 100 year history. The Business Legal Services division is also the fastest-growing area of the firm, with an increasing number of global, national and regional companies choosing to work with us. In 2012, we became one of the first companies to be approved as an Alternative Business Structure (ABS), allowing us to plan for growth and take advantage of the opportunities created by the changing legal landscape.
Irwin Mitchell have been involved in the club since 2017 and have been the main financial contributor into making the club into what it is today. Without a doubt they have changed the face of the club and we are proud to be associated with Irwin Mitchell.
Shirt and Social Sponsor
The club has an historic past. It was founded towards the end of the last century by a group of sportsmen, including the great Dr. W. G. Grace, as a central point at which the city's various sporting personalities could meet.
They called it the Century Club, and limited the membership to 100.
A thriving sports club in the heart of Bristol, Sportsmans a.k.a the Bristol County Sports Club is the hub of social activity for the club. This where all post match food is served and where we partake in our social activities.
The club has been involved with Sportsmans since 2016 and our relationship has flourished over the years. Our captain's board hangs proudly in the pub alongside many shirts and club memorabilia.
Sportsmans have been great friends to the club and we hope this continues for many years to come!
Man of the Match Sponsor
Marston's have been running pubs and brewing beer in one form or another for over 180 years. Now we’ve got 13,000 people working for us and many more in partnership with us, and they all share our passion! Our people; from the brewery teams, to the distribution fleet, to every single team member in our pubs, have helped us to become a thriving FTSE All Share listed company. We have pubs that are traditional locals, family pub restaurants and fashionable town centre bars. While pubs may have changed a lot over the years, the reasons people use them hasn’t. The pub is where we go to socialise, celebrate, commiserate, relax, reflect, regroup or simply enjoy a cold beer or a bite to eat at the end of a long day. We are now one of the country’s top pub businesses and the leading brewer of premium cask and bottled beers. We operate six breweries producing over 60 of the country's best loved ales at our sites in: Burton on Trent (Marston’s), Oxfordshire (Wychwood & Brakspear), Cumbria (Jennings), Hampshire (Ringwood), Bedford (Eagle) and the West Midlands (Banks’s). We're rightly proud of our heritage - our people, our pubs and our beers. We work hard making sure that everything we do; from the beers we brew, to the pubs they are enjoyed in, and the people that serve them, are always the best that they can possibly be.
The club have formed a new Man of the Match partnership with Marston's as well as a deal to use their 'Courage' ale for the season thanks to their relationship with Sportsman's.

Rytons Associates were set up with one vision in mind, to be the best recruitment partner in the market and as we grow, that vision is at the core of everything we do. It’s an easy statement to make but one that keeps our focus on the job in hand. We are not a target driven organisation which allows our Consultants to focus on delivering quality. It’s not about filling your inbox with bulk CV’s it’s about listening to your brief, understanding your business model and what makes your business unique in order to deliver the right candidate, with the rights skills, who shares your values.
This is the first season the UBH have worked with Ryton's and hopefully the first of many. Ryton's are sponsoring our training tops given to all new players this season which we hope is the start of a good future relationship.
We believe that mental health is social and political as well as personal, so our approach embraces social action and tries to influence systems and policy.
We believe that in the face of contemporary diversity, all theoretical models are wrong, but all of them are useful. As a result, we build our team from diverse backgrounds, experiences and disciplines.
We believe that relationships are what make the difference - so our approach is fundamentally relational.
We believe in the power of networks, and so we emphasise peer relationships, professional partnerships and organisational collaboration in our approach.
We believe enabling young people starts with recognising their capabilities before their vulnerabilities, so our approach is fundamentally strengths based.
We believe participatory services are more sustainable than transactional ones, so young people play a large and active role designing, delivering and communicating our work - not just consuming it.
We believe what we do should be a vocation - and we love what we do! So our approach and team are full of enthusiasm, imagination, curiosity, and talent.
