Fernhurst Cricket Club - Becoming a Sponsor

 
Sponsoring Fernhurst Cricket Club
 
 
The sponsorship options for 2014 have now been finalised. We hope that all our members and friends will consider asking their employers to take-up one of these opportunities. Costs range from just £25, with new options this year allowing teams, facilities and coaching teams to be included.

We believe that the club is at a very exciting point in its development with the amazing new practice nets in place, two junior age group teams expected to play in 2014, a goal to increase our overall junior membership from 65 towards three figures, a 1st XI expected to challenge very strongly for promotion to division 2, plus the inclusiveness of our Sunday & Gents (veterans) XIs where we try to include as many as possible of all ages and abilities in our matches.

Contact Bill at bill.gourlay@hotmail.co.uk for more details of how to make your business part of Fernhurst's 2014 season !

Our past sponsors have had several hundred hits through our website to their own sites, and a number obtained business of in excess of £500 through their association with us. One firm obtained several thousand pounds of business from just a £30 advert !

Situated in a quintessentially English village, Fernhurst is a friendly, well established club in an idyllic setting with first class facilities.  We field one Saturday team, in the I'Anson Cricket League, reputedly the oldest league in England, and a Sunday team which plays friendly cricket against several other local village clubs, as well as entertaining a number of teams from the London area. 2014 will also be the first time that our junior section has been available for sponsorship which, featuring over 65 children and two age group teams is an extremely exciting addition to our club. We also host a very well attended 6-a-side competition and a veterans team for those over 45.

Our aim is to be an integral part of the village, and of the local community, providing playing opportunities for local players of all abilities, whilst also creating a strong social environment through Race Nights, Quiz Nights, barbecues, and other events throughout the season. We hope that you will want your firm to be associated with these efforts, and so have put together a number of different sponsorship opportunities ranging from just £25 upwards. A key piece of our consideration is to ensure that you, the sponsor, genuinely get value for money and so have spent a lot of time comparing our deals to those of other clubs in order to create a set of offers that we believe are unmatched by our peers.
