Parker: Great Gesture

Saturday 5 October 2019 06:00

Scott Parker has praised Dafabet’s gesture of giving up their kit sponsorship for the Charlton Athletic fixture.

Our Main Team Sponsor has donated their space on the front of the Fulham shirts to the Foundation, giving our charitable arm extra exposure due to the fixture being shown live on Sky Sports.

Parker was a big advocate of the Foundation’s work during his playing days with the Whites, a standpoint he’s maintained since becoming our Head Coach.

“These companies pay an awful lot of money to get their names on shirts and to give that up for a televised game, it means a lot for the Foundation,” he said. “We’re all absolutely delighted that for Saturday’s game their name will be on the shirts.

“We spend most days at this training ground and we often see the Foundation and community sharing our facilities, which is massive for the Football Club.

“The grassroots, disability programmes, everything that the Foundation does, it never goes unnoticed. We realise what a great job they do and I’m just pleased that on Saturday they’ll have their name on show.”
