The Management Board are pleased to announce that All Rounder Cricket Equipment are the new sponsors of the enlarged Bradford Cricket League.
All Rounder, who were backing the Central Yorkshire League prior to its merger with the Bradford League, take over as title sponsors from JCT600, who have been loyal backers of the league for nine years.
It means the competition will from today be known as The All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League. The league website will be rebranded and new letter headings produced to reflect the name.
The managing director of All Rounder Cricket Equipment is the former Yorkshire and Derbyshire batsmen Chris Taylor, who has enjoyed a long and successful playing career in the Bradford League.
Taylor is delighted to be sponsor of the Bradford League at an exciting time in its development. He said: "Having played in the Bradford Cricket League from a very young age it is now a great honour for my company, All Rounder Cricket, to become the headline sponsor of the world renowned league.
" I am delighted that we can help support both the Bradford Premier League and it’s member clubs as they enter an exciting new era of Premier League cricket in West Yorkshire.”
League chairman David Young said: "It is extremely pleasing to have a new sponsor who understands the league's aims and ambitions following its merger with the Central Yorkshire League and its progress towards becoming an ECB Premier League.
"We look forward to working with All Rounder and we thank JCT600 for their loyal and valued backing over the past nine seasons."
All Rounder Cricket Equipment has established itself as one the largest cricket retailers with a huge store at Headingley adjacent to the Indoor Cricket School, and Yorkshire and England star Joe Root will open their brand new megastore just north of Sheffield this Saturday (December 5). The new shop is one of the largest cricket stores in the UK.
All Rounder Cricket Equipment are exclusive suppliers of Under Armour and Adidas playing and teamwear to cricket clubs. They stock more than 1,000 cricket bats.
