Exwick Villa sponsorship

1st August 2018

Gilbert Stephens solicitors are delighted to be supporting Exwick Villa at the Exwick 3G Hub.

The Exwick 3G Hub is a sports hub, part of a £14 million investment in sports developments and facilities at Exeter College who worked in partnership with Exeter City Community Trust to officially launch the facilities in March, launched by the Lord Mayor it is a valuable asset to the community.

Gilbert Stephens Solicitors will be sponsoring a banner at the ground, providing funds to help support the team through their next season.

Club Chairman Clive Martin said “We enjoy building new relationships with local businesses and are grateful for the support of Gilbert Stephens, their sponsorship is invaluable to ensuring Exwick Villa’s future in the league”.

Exwick Villa, who finished fourth in the Devon & Exeter Football Premier League this season, have existed since 1968.  Originally based at the Exwick ground and called Exeter Civil Service they were one of the most successful teams in the Exeter area whose players came from mainly a public sector service background.

The Club became homeless in 2012.  It was then that Exeter College took on the lease and built the new sports hub and so became the club’s new landlords.  The football committee decided to rename the club Exwick Villa from the 2013-2014 season.  With a new 3G artificial surface down at the sports hub, after a well deserved rest, the team look forward to a successful 2018/19 season.  However further sponsorship is still required and anyone interested should get in touch with Clive Martin.

The sports hub will be used by a host of other clubs including Exwick Cricket Club, Chiefs DPP Rugby, Alphington Youth & Wessex RFU and Exeter University Women’s Football.
