NG doubles up at A52 derby

Charlotte Steggles

It was honours even at Pride Park between Derby County Women and Nottingham Forest Women on Easter Sunday, but NG Chartered Surveyors was celebrating what the company believes is a first.

NG Chartered Surveyors’ associate director Charlotte Steggles is one of the stars of the Ewes team this year – backed by sponsorship from the company’s Block Management arm.

Meanwhile, NG also sponsors Nottingham Forest Women’s star striker Charlotte Greengrass – meaning that the company couldn’t really lose.

The A52 Derby was played out in front of a bumper crowd of almost 2,500 fans and the Women’s National League game ended in a 1-1 draw.

At full-time everyone came away happy as the teams played out an entertaining draw – with both Charlottes in the thick of the action.

Steggles said: “This was a big game for me after joining the Ewes from Forest Women in the close season. I still have some great friends at Forest and so, although of course I wanted to win, a draw is a fair result – and it was great to be on the same pitch as the other Charlotte again!

“I’m proud to work for a company that puts its money where its mouth is and supports the women’s game in the East Midlands. These sponsorships really do make the difference in the women’s game and I know both teams are incredibly grateful.”

Greengrass added: “NG’s support means a lot. I am really grateful to have such a brilliant and supportive sponsor. Richard and everyone at NG have always made their support known and I genuinely appreciate it so much.

“All the money is directly invested into everything we do as a team. It is a huge commitment for us as players to juggle our careers and other commitments with football so every ounce of support we receive from sponsorship is super beneficial and we never take it for granted.”

Richard Sutton, managing director at NG Chartered Surveyors, added: “NG is known for supporting young talent – both in the office and on the pitch.

“We’re delighted to be able to support both Charlottes in their footballing careers – and a draw was a very amicable way to end Easter Sunday!”
