July Sports Review

Our Sports Review is released every month capturing the very best of the local sports clubs that we sponsor. Paul Robinson Solicitors LLP sponsors many sports clubs including cricket, football and rugby clubs from the local area.

Southend United Football Club welcomed their latest appointment for the new season, Luke Hyam on the 2nd of this month. They kicked off their pre-season friendlies with a bang winning against Great Wakering 5-0 on 7th July. The Blues also went to Spain for 5 days this month for training and played a match in scorching heat against Aberdeen Development which ended 1-1. Blues unfortunately lost on 18th July to Spurs 6-0 but pulled it back with 1-1 against Leeds and 0-3 win against Bishops Stortford. They finished their pre-season campaign against Leyton Orient with a 2 all draw. This month ended with the team holding their annual Blues Day, which was very well attended despite the miserable weather, highlighting the commitment of the fans to the team.

We are pleased confirm we will remain as main sponsors of Billericay Town Football club and we are looking forward to the upcoming season with the team playing in the Vanarama National League South. The team have won 4 out of their 6 pre-season friendlies, but the big test will be tomorrow night against West Ham. We wish the team the best of luck for the match and the upcoming season which officially starts on 4th August against Truro City.

Southend Rugby Football Club announced this month that their schedule kicks off on 11th August against Old Dartfordians. The team have been back out training hard this month with our very own Andrew McClintock, Partner in Property, (Macca) helping the team as Technical Specialist.

Southend Cricket Club have had a tough month losing all of their games against Chelmsford, Brentwood, Chingford and Hornchurch. However, they are not down hearted as the 1st XI look forward to their next match against Ilford CC.
