Putting Dorking Women on the Main Pitch

09 January 2024

Dorking 56 – 3 Staines (Saturday 6th January)

MVAM Financial Advice are proud sponsors of Dorking women’s rugby team, who beat Staines this weekend in an unprecedented Saturday match on the main pitch.

This was the first time the women’s team had played on a Saturday on the big pitch alongside the club’s sell-out members’ and sponsors’ lunch. Dorking dominated in front of a home crowd.

MVAM played a pivotal role as main sponsors of the women’s team, encouraging the club to ensure the women were given the same platform and publicity as the men’s side.

Craig Harper, MVAM Managing Director said: “It is of huge importance to us as a sponsor and local financial advice firm, that we support the local community with sponsorship that matches our values of care and courage, to promote equal opportunity at any and every level and ensure sportswomen are given the same opportunities as men.

“I continue to be amazed at the leadership of Dorking Rugby club that shares our values and put on a day that the opposition coach of twenty years said that he had never seen the like of in women’s rugby. A fantastic day that gave the Dorking women a well-earned platform to shine. We are proud to sponsor the women’s team.”

The Player of the Match was awarded by MVAM to Rachel Higgins.
