JUNIORS: Travel Places to sponsor Sussex’s Junior Squads23-Apr-2014
Sussex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Travel Places are the brand new sponsors of their Junior County Age Group Squads.
Travel Places, who are based locally in Worthing, specialise in providing travel solutions for major sporting events around the world and have been involved with Sussex Cricket for a number of years.
They are the Club’s Official Flight Partner and have now made this further commitment to Junior Cricket which will see their name displayed on the shirts of the Junior County Age Group Squads, through from Under 10’s to Under 17’s.
The County Age Group Squads play a number of fixtures against other counties across the summer and it is the breeding ground of professional players. A number of players from the current Sussex squad have progressed through the system and with the support of the Sussex Cricket in the Community Trust, the current crop of youngsters are able to play their home fixtures at The Sutton Winson Academy Ground, Blackstone after the funding of the dedicated facility.
As part of the new Travel Places sponsorship there will be a new Junior Squads Performance of the Month Award which will be featured on the Sussex Cricket website and judged by Cricket Performance Manager Keith Greenfield.
Matt Warren, Director of Travel Places said, “Travel Places are proud to be able to sponsor the Sussex Junior Age Group squads. We have been passionate about Sussex Cricket for many years and are thrilled at the opportunity to be able to invest in the future of cricket in the county.
“It is an exciting time for Travel Places as we are currently rebranding our school sports tours department. With a new website launching in a few weeks’ time, it fits perfectly with our new tie-up with grass roots sport which brilliantly compliments the work that we do with professional sports teams around the world. I hope that we can enjoy a successful partnership with the Junior Squads.”
Sussex’s Cricket Performance Manager Keith Greenfield said, “We’re delighted that Travel Places are supporting the Sussex Junior Squads. It is vital that investment continues to be made into all facets of Sussex Cricket, right through from the Junior Squads to the professional element and we thank them for their support.”
