Cricket club bowled over by new deal

Shrewsbury Cricket Club has been bowled over by a new two-year sponsorship deal with an award-winning town business.

Salop Leisure has agreed to sponsor Shrewsbury’s coloured kit, having previously supported a popular annual Twenty-20 Tournament involving Shropshire clubs. The company also has an advertising board on the club’s London Road ground.

The Emstrey-based caravan, motorhome home dealership has been a long-time supporter of the club, which has consistently competed at the top of Birmingham and District Premier Cricket League,

Shrewsbury’s chairman Rob Foster said the club is fielding four senior teams and three junior teams this season, with around 100 junior players signed up.

“We have quite a young first team and we are trying to progress year on year without putting the weight of expectation on the players,. Given the impact of the last 12 months on everyone, the club appreciates greatly the continued support of Salop Leisure, a company well-known not just in Shropshire but throughout the UK."

Salop Leisure’s marketing manager, Ed Glover, said the company was proud to be associated with Shrewsbury Cricket Club. “We are delighted that the club continues to provide opportunities for talented young cricketers, many of whom have progressed to play first class county cricket.”
