Youngsters at Belhus Cricket Club in West Thurrock were bowled over after Transmec UK agreed to sponsor the club’s under 15 team.
An active supporter of youth cricket since the mid-1970s, Belhus Cricket Club offers boys and girls the chance to improve their cricketing skills under the watchful gaze of qualified England and Wales Cricket Board coaches.
“We’re delighted to be sponsoring the Colts and we’re crossing our fingers for a great season,” said keen cricketer Imran Mohammed, Transmec UK’s financial controller.
“The club is dedicated to helping children realise their potential and many of the juniors have gone on to represent their district or county teams. We wish them every success and we’ll be watching their progress with interest.”
