Despite the onset of Premier League football fever, some of us are still relishing England’s fantastic triumph over Australia in regaining the Ashes at Trent Bridge. Closer to home we’ve also been witnessing an equally tense cricket season as we follow the fortunes of local XI, Foxton Cricket Club. As you can see from the photos, as shirt sponsors, we have a vested interest in their success!
Located on the outskirts of Cambridge, Foxton CC are currently competing in the 2015 Davidstow Village Cup. Progressing nicely though the quarter-finals, they recently did an amazing job and won their semi-final match against Goatacre CC of Wiltshire and have made it through to the final.
Playing the 2014 winners, Woodhouse Grange CC of Yorkshire on 13 September, the showpiece final is at Lord's, the Davidstow Village Cup being the only competition that offers amateur sportsmen and women the opportunity to play out their dreams on such hallowed turf. The two teams will also be given the same treatment as the England team when they play at Lord’s including the same accommodation, suits and hospitality.
Royston Labels’ managing director, Paul Clayton, said: “We’re fully aware that sponsorship funding plays a big part in helping local sports clubs continue playing and we are delighted to be involved in a shirt sponsorship arrangement with Foxton CC. Following their progress to the final at Lord’s is nail-biting to say the least and we wish them every success on 13 September.”
Cup sponsors, leading cheese brand Davidstow, are offering a year’s supply of cheddar to the winning XI, a further incentive for victory as Foxton CC step out onto the turf at Lord’s.
Good luck Foxton!
