Garstang CC announce a new sponsorship deal ahead of the 2021 campaign
Garstang CC have had a boost ahead of the new Northern Premier Cricket League campaign after agreeing a new sponsorship deal.
The club has announced a multi-year link-up with John Robinson Building Contractors ahead of the 2021 season, which is set to start a week on Saturday.
With clubs in all sports looking to plug the financial gap created by the pandemic, Garstang officials were understandably thrilled with their new deal.
Club chairman Michael Walling said: “We are delighted to have J Robinson Building Contractors as our main club sponsor for the next three years, it is great to see local businesses supporting their local sports club.
“They will be our main sponsor and shirt sponsor. It’s fantastic for us, it gives us some guaranteed sponsorship for three years.
“The partnership with the company will allow the club to continue to invest in our facilities and our junior coaching programme, where we have partnered with six local schools to deliver an introduction to cricket programme to more than 500 local children.
“The club is grateful to all our sponsors, who have continued to support the club through these difficult times and, without them, we would not be able to offer the facilities that we do.
“We’ve had to think on our feet this year with sponsorship, fundraising and everything else.
“We set up a golf day last year and we have our lottery as well but sponsorship is most of our main source of income, so to get one for three years is great.”
Established in 1975, the company was founded by current managing director John Robinson whose son, Mark, joined the business back in 2013 as a quantity surveyor.
Over the last four decades, the firm’s team has grown to more than 70 and holds a number of key regulation accreditations.
John said: “We pride ourselves on being a family-run firm providing a personal service.
“We’re committed to delivering high quality builds both domestic and commercial.”
Mark added: “We are based around Garstang and we are delighted to give something back to the local community by partnering with Garstang Cricket Club.
“Knowing the club as we do, we know that we are investing in a club that has always strived to improve their facilities and better the offering for their members, so we are delighted to be a part of this.”
