Dallas Scott Davey in Lincolnshire is now providing independent insurance broking and risk management services to Lincoln City Football Club, as well as supporting the club as a business partner.
Dallas Scott Davey employees a team of seven from its office at Plowright House on the Riseholme Estate. The firm is headed up by experienced insurance professionals, Ed Davey and Darren Scott, who have almost 50 years combined industry experience.
Dallas Scott Davey provides business and agricultural insurance to a wide range of clients and is part of the TL Dallas Group. From its headquarters in Bradford, the firm also manages all Bradford City Football Club’s insurance needs.
Darren said: “As a huge fan of The Imps, it’s a real career highlight for me to be working with the club. Our wider group already has a similar relationship with Bradford City, where TL Dallas has supported the club for more than 45 years.
“Bradford City and Lincoln City have a massive affinity with each other as very sadly back in 1985, during the fire disaster at Bradford City’s Valley Parade, 56 fans lost their lives – 54 from Bradford and two from Lincoln. Many others were also injured, and since then both clubs hold dear the memories of these fans and hold events, like a recent veterans’ match between the two clubs to raise funds in their honour.”
Adam Chantrey, from Lincoln City, said: “We chose Dallas Scott Davey because Darren, Ed and the team are clearly very passionate about what they do and are based locally to us, so they can provide an in-person and highly experienced service. We have a number of complicated insurance risks which DSD have run through in great depth, to make sure we are covered as comprehensively as possible, and we are confident that we are in safe hands.”
Dallas Scott Davey opened in Lincolnshire at the end of 2021, and the firm plans to double in size over the next two years, recruiting even more account handlers and brokers to meet client demand.
Ed Davey, director at Dallas Scott Davey, said: “As we celebrate our second anniversary, the business is in a great position to continue growing and supporting businesses, the farming community and sports clubs across Lincolnshire. This partnership with Lincoln City FC will hopefully be a long and fruitful one, and we are really excited to be working with the club.”
