A thriving Staffordshire Moorlands community cricket club has been bowled over by a five-year support deal from digger giant JCB.
Oakamoor Cricket Club has secured £2,000 sponsorship from the company which will see all men’s and women’s teams as well as a host of boys and girls junior squads sporting new JCB playing shirts.
The club play home games and practise at the Davies/Worthington Memorial Ground, Mill Road, and regularly fields six adult teams and junior squads ranging from under 8s through to under 16s, competing in games across North Staffordshire and South Cheshire.
Club spokesman Jonathan Wood, HR Business Partner at JCB, said: “Oakamoor is a thriving cricket club and we pride ourselves on making the game accessible to all at both competitive and friendly levels. We have six adult teams and more than 100 children a week attending our practice sessions on a Friday evening. This sponsorship makes a great difference to our long-term future and every single player will be proud to wear their JCB shirts. We hope to represent the JCB name with winning results on the cricket field over the coming season and beyond.”
