Newick Cricket Club Receives A Shot In The Arm
TR Fastenings, an organisation based in Uckfield, has announced continued financial support for Newick Cricket Club for this season.
Over the last few years, TR Fastenings has been sponsoring the Division 1 status cricket club and the funds provided have been used to upgrade the pavilion at Templegrove, the scorebox at King George V Playing Field, and repair the slip catcher and the sightscreen.
Coming at a time when cricket clubs are cutting down on the number of teams they field owing to financial constraints, TR Fastening's latest move is good news to Newick. Having played for Newick since the end of the 70s, Piers Morgan has been organising matches between his family and the Newick side. This year's tournament is taking place on July 29.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Geoff Budd, TR Fastening’s Director, reiterated their commitment to nurturing young talent and securing the future of the Newick Club. "We are proud that our financial support is helping keep the club in tip-top shape," he said.
Newick plays in the East Sussex Cricket League and holds a Division 1 status. Continuous funding from sponsors, such as TR Fastenings, has helped lift the club into the limelight, with four senior teams and several flourishing junior teams.
