Barratt is building new homes in at Orchard Meadows in Appleton and have sponsored the club’s women’s team, allowing them to carry on enjoying the well-loved sport.
The three year sponsorship will help the club to pay for a coach to help develop the senior women’s players and will free up ECB Level 3 coach and Appleton women’s 1st XI captain, Jess Lewis, to work with 5 to 11 year old girls and boys starting cricket through the club’s All Stars and Dynamos programmes.
Antony Hurst, Chair of Appleton Cricket Club, said: “We are delighted to welcome Barratt Homes Manchester as women’s team sponsors for the next three years. As a family-oriented club it is great to collaborate with an organisation building quality homes for families looking to move into the area.”
The club provides a range of sessions for all abilities, genders and ages from 5 years old and upwards, friendly teams, women’s softball and men and women’s competitive league teams.
Neil Goodwin, Managing Director at Barratt Homes Manchester, said: “As the UK’s leading homebuilders, it is really important that we support organisations and charities in the areas in which we build.
“Appleton Cricket Club is a great example of a club that brings the whole community together. We wish them all the best of luck in the next season and hope that they can continue their wonderful work within the community of Appleton.”
