Chartered accountancy firm PKF Francis Clark has announced it will be sponsoring Somerset County Cricket player Jamie Overton for the 2019 season.
The Devon-born right-arm fast bowler has been a key performer for Somerset County Cricket Club since impressing on his first-class debut against Surrey in 2012. Overton’s formidable combination of attributes including pace, height (6ft 5ins) and talent make him a player to watch in 2019. He has performed well for the Lions this winter, taking 3-24 during a consolation victory in a 4-1 series defeat in a one-day series against India A.
Andrew Richards, Managing Partner at PKF Francis Clark said “We’re delighted to be sponsoring Jamie Overton for the 2019 season. As part of PKF Francis Clark’s culture of shared ambition, we are huge supporters of Somerset County Cricket Club, and professional sport across the South West and beyond. We relish the opportunity to help Jamie and Somerset County with their campaign this year, and wish them every success.”
Tamsin Tully, Director of Professional Sport Services at PKF Francis Clark said “PKF Francis Clark look after the taxation and accountancy affairs of many top professional cricketers. The specialist support we provide in this niche area helps players transition smoothly from the start of their careers to ultimate retirement, without hitting any of the tax pitfalls that others may encounter along the way. With the accountancy and taxation side of their career in safe hands, players are able to fully focus their attention on progressing in their sport.”
