Uckfield based TR Fastenings’ is delighted to announce its continued support of Newick Cricket Club throughout the 2015 season.

Sponsorship has helped to improve and maintain the ground and equipment in first class condition, necessary for a Club that holds Division 1 status. Playing in the East Sussex Cricket League, Newick CC is a successful, popular village club, with 4 senior teams and thriving junior teams.

TR Fastenings has been a Corporate Sponsor of the Club since 2013, and over the last couple of years the funds received from TR and three other Sponsors have enabled a variety of works to take place such as upgrading the pavilion at Templegrove, repairs to the sightscreen and slip catcher, upgrading the scorebox at King George V Playing Field and installing a repeater board so scores are more visible.

At a time when some cricket clubs are reducing the number of teams they field, Newick is fortunate to have loyal sponsors and volunteers who are keen to give the talented younger players the opportunity to play the game. A familiar face at Newick CC is local resident Piers Morgan, a well-known journalist and television presenter. Piers has played for Newick since 1978 and each year since 2000, he has organised a match between the Morgan family team and the Newick side, which includes famous “ringers”. This year Piers’s match is scheduled on Sunday 26th July.

Geoff Budd, TR’s Managing Director commented: “Nurturing talent and encouraging participation in the sport with a younger generation will help secure the future of the Club and its continued success. We are proud of our association with the Club and delighted that our financial support is helping to keep the Club in tip top shape in preparation for a busy summer ahead.”
