LIFT-Mortgages Official Sleeve Sponsor for Dover Athletic FA Cup game

10 November 2019

Southend United is delighted to announce LIFT-Mortgages as the Official Sleeve Sponsor for today’s Emirates FA Cup First Round tie against Dover Athletic, live on BT Sport at the Crabble Athletic Ground.

With four FA Cup winners’ medals under his belt as a player, Sol will be on the touchline as a manager for the first time in the tournament and Blues will be donning the LIFT-Mortgages logo on their left sleeve.

Rhys Ellingham, Head of Commercial said: "It’s great to have LIFT-Mortgages on board, they work nationally, and it was a perfect collaboration with this game being televised to a huge audience.

"Their aim is to give customers an unrivalled service and their client feedback speaks for itself; I highly recommend anyone looking to arrange a mortgage to use LIFT-Mortgages.”

David Baker, Managing Director of LIFT-Mortgages says: "I am a fourth generation Southend fan. My great grandad helped to build Roots Hall and my great uncle played for the club. My Dad first took me to watch his side Southend in 1987 when I was seven. We lost 6-2 but I was instantly hooked. It seemed only natural to sponsor my side in such a big televised game especially as we have look after a large number of Southend supporters and staff’s mortgages (including the players) over the years”

LIFT-Mortgages was established in 2012 and has helped thousands of clients to find the right mortgage solution. From the everyday to complex circumstances, we help our clients through the process from pre-application right through to having the keys in their hand.
