Crowborough Cricket Club has had a great start to the new season after receiving a new kit from national housebuilder Bellway.
Teams are now donning their new attire in their matches after Bellway funded new kits for the club’s junior team.
The club plays its home games at The Wolfe recreation ground on Blackness Road, and celebrates its 70th anniversary this year
Club chairman Jon Woollerton thanked Bellway for the donation and said it had provided a big boost for the club’s younger members:
We were delighted when Bellway agreed to provide new kits for our teams and the boys were very excited when they were able to try them on for the first time.
It’s a great way of marking the club’s 70th anniversary, which we are celebrating this season.
The club now runs a range of different teams for all ages and abilities, and we have teams that play games during the week and at weekends so everyone can get involved.
We place great emphasis on making sure this is a family-orientated club, which makes playing cricket enjoyable for everyone.
We’d like to thank Bellway for their generous donation.
Managing Director for Bellway’s Kent division, Chris Moore, said clubs like Crowborough Cricket Club were a great resource for local communities, and explained that Bellway was more than happy to lend a helping hand.
As a housebuilder that plays a large role in creating new communities, we understand the importance of clubs like Crowborough Cricket Club. They do a fantastic job of making cricket fun and enjoyable for everyone, but also teach young people the values of teamwork and improve their confidence and self-esteem.
It’s great to hear that the teams are pleased with their new kit, and we wish the club all the best for the season.
