Yorkshire now has a sponsor


Share post:

For the first time in three years Yorkshire have a sponsor for their Division One cricket team.
During a recent presentation ceremony at the club’s Friendship pavilion, Malcolm Smith, plant manager of Premix and Precast Concrete Limited, handed over training gear, cricket shirts and hats to club president Louis Linton and other members.
The sponsorship is for a two-year period and already the team is making the investment count by winning the first two completed matches of this year’s Barbados Cricket Association’s Division One season.
Linton said that the assistance was greatly appreciated and would help in the club’s development as it sought promotion to the Elite division.
“Recently there has been an influx of new players at Yorkshire, and this will help us in our efforts to continually develop our players,” Linton said. “It will also help to assist us with our junior programme.”
This year, Yorkshire has gained the services of former Barbados allrounder Antonio Mayers, who is performing the dual role of coach/player and leg-spinning allrounder Ryan Layne, who has also represented the Barbados senior team.
Yorkshire are leading the Division One table with 34 points, followed by YMPC?on 26 and Banks Wildey and the Barbados Youth, who are on 23 points each. (RB)
