Young Norfolk cricketers take to the crease with renewed sponsorship deal

Norfolk’s Under 17s girls county cricket team are starting a busy season of matches – after a local firm of accountants renewed their sponsorship of the team for the third year running.

Norfolk’s Under 17s girls county cricket team are starting a busy season of matches – after a local firm of accountants renewed their sponsorship of the team for the third year running.

Chartered accountants and financial planners Lovewell Blake has once again agreed to support the county’s Under 17s girls team.

The team has a busy season ahead of them, with matches against Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and a Cricket East Team stretching across the next three months.

Team manager Pete Free, who played for Norfolk between 2000 and 2008, said, “Interest in women’s cricket is growing hugely, and it is really important for us to have the support of local firms like Lovewell Blake, which helps us complete our winter training programme and fulfil a complete season of matches, supporting the development of our talented youngsters.

“Because of Lovewell Blake’s continued support, we were able to run a separate winter training programme for the Under 17s squad. The effect this has is evident from the fact that two members of last year’s squad have now been offered places at first-class counties.

“A strong county side is also crucial to motivating women’s and girls’ cricket at club and school level, which is where new players will come through to join the county squad.”
