Cricket Team Secures New Sponsor
Hotel chain Hampton by Hilton will be the first sponsor of the team and has awarded a grant of £600 to pay for kit for the Year 7/8 team.
Cricket Coach Jordon Joseph applied for the funding after reading of the grants in the local newspaper and the team found out it had been successful at an awards evening held at the Hampton by Hilton hotel in Corby on December 22.
The funding will cover the costs of all new kit - which will be emblazoned with the CBA logo as well as the Hampton by Hilton branding - and will also help towards costs for the newly formed girls team.
Jordon said: "On the application form I stressed how the funding would help benefit the 25 plus students who regularly attend the Cricket Club and I also pointed out that as we travel to matches and tournaments across the county then we would be promoting the hotel brand wherever we went.
"We had a good first season last year and we are hoping to do even better this year. We are currently indoor training during the winter season and will are looking forward to this year's matches starting in March."
