R. Gwinnell & Sons sponsors historic Royal Oak football ground

Harwich and Parkeston’s football stadium is now called the Gwinnell & Sons Royal Oak.

As local funeral directors with branches across Essex and Suffolk, including Dovercourt and Manningtree, we are delighted to provide sponsorship for the non-league club.

The club have told us they are very excited by the sponsorship deal which will allow them to pump more money into their first team and youth set-up, as well as make improvements at the ground. This will include upgrades to the tunnel area and a new sign outside the ground.

We are also arranging a memorial board at the ground in Main Road to remember former players and supporters.

At Gwinnells, we support a number of local sports clubs and organisations as our way of giving something back to our local communities.
