Sussex kick-off their Specsavers County Championship campaign for the new season on Friday, April 14, when Kent are the visitors to Hove across Easter weekend for what promises to be a fantastic curtain-raiser.

They then travel to Trent Bridge to face relegated Nottinghamshire before returning to four-day action at the end of May, entertaining Durham at Hove and travelling to Tunbridge Wells for the return fixture with local rivals Kent.

Chairman of Aerotron Tony Westley said: “Aerotron is delighted to expand our existing sponsorship of the indoor school and individual matches at Hove with a new sponsorship for the upcoming 2017 Specsavers County Championship season.

“The indoor school involvement was intended to encourage talented youngsters to improve their skills with expert coaching, and now the shirt sponsorship is to encourage those same youngsters to achieve excellence through the application of those skills, in a truly English game.”

Sussex’s business relationship manager Tony Cottey said: “We are very proud of our long association with Sussex-based company Aerotron, and it is great news for us that they have decided to expand their sponsorship with us.

“Tony and all his staff are firmly a part of the Sussex Family and we look forward to seeing them at Hove this season.”
