Ramsey Cricket Club’s junior section is set to be raising its game – and its league profile – after the club received a Celton Manx Recognition award to fund new cricket kit for its younger players.
The club’s Rob Webber said: ‘Ramsey Cricket Club is all about “community cricket” with a good number of parents involved as volunteer coaches. We play at Ramsey Grammar School and are looking to develop our 60-strong junior section, so to have quality kit will not only help to attract new but also retain existing members.
‘We’re tremendously grateful to Celton Manx for awarding us the funds to buy these kit packs. It’s always a lot easier to play well when you have the right kit; it boosts players’ confidence, encourages them to keep going and helps to present a strong brand image for the club.’
Celton Manx executive director Bill Mummery said: ‘Celton Manx is pleased to be supporting a cricket club that chooses to engage so positively with the local community. It is an approach that Celton Manx, as a business deeply committed to corporate social responsibility, wholeheartedly endorses. Rob and his colleagues are clearly dedicated to making cricket as accessible as possible to its younger players and encouraging them to realise their sporting potential. I wish Ramsey Cricket Club every success in the future.’
Recognition is the corporate social responsibility programme of Celton Manx. Applications for Recognition 2020 will be invited soon.
