With cricket very much the talked about sport following England’s triumph over Australia in regaining the Ashes, UK-based specialist label manufacturer, Royston Labels, has been following an equally tense cricket season as shirt sponsors of local team Foxton Cricket Club.
Located on the outskirts of Cambridge, Foxton CC are currently competing in the 2015 Davidstow Village Cup. Following a highly spirited semi-final, they have made it through to the final and will meet the 2014 winners, Woodhouse Grange CC of Yorkshire on September 13.
The showpiece final is at England’s famous Lord’s Cricket Ground, the Davidstow Village Cup being the only competition that offers amateur sportsmen and women the opportunity to play out their dreams on such hallowed turf. The two teams will also be given the same treatment as the England team when they play at Lord’s, including the same accommodation, suits and hospitality.
Royston Labels’ managing director, Paul Clayton, said: “We’re fully aware that sponsorship funding plays a big part in helping local sports clubs continue playing and we are delighted to be involved in a shirt sponsorship arrangement with Foxton CC.
“Following their progress to the final at Lord’s is nail-biting to say the least and we wish them every success on the 13th of September.”
Royston Labels will be exhibiting on stand C12 at Packaging Innovations, London Olympia on September 16 – 17, 2015.
