SPONSORING JUNIOR CRICKET LEAGUE FOR ANOTHER YEAR
With an increase in the number of clubs participating this season, Nidderdale and District Amateur Cricket League has confirmed North Yorkshire independent heating and fuel oil supplier Kettlewell Fuels as main sponsor of its Junior Cricket League for yet another year - contributing to the continued development of junior cricket across the district.
Based near Ripon, Kettlewell Fuels started sponsoring the junior league back in 2019 and will continue its support throughout the 2022 season, with commitment to another seasonal sponsorship package.
The Nidderdale Junior Cricket League, part of the larger Nidderdale and District Amateur Cricket League, comprises Nidderdale-based cricket clubs. This year, the number of clubs entering has risen from 23 to 27, with a total of 114 junior teams compared with 99 last year.
Commenting on this, Nidderdale and District Amateur Cricket League Chairman, Sir Thomas Ingilby, said:
“It’s such great news that junior cricket is growing in popularity across the district. Kettlewell Fuels has been a huge support over the last few years, and we’re looking forward to working with them to push the boundaries of grassroots cricket even further this season.”
Mick Dawson, Junior League Hon. League General Secretary added:
“Our first fixtures are scheduled for week commencing 25th April where our under 18s begin their season followed by the under 15s on 28th April. The other age group matches start in early May – we can’t wait to get this year’s league underway and I’d like to say a personal thank you to Kettlewell Fuels for their support once again. It’s backing from local businesses like this that help to secure the future of grassroots cricket.”
Janet Kettlewell from Kettlewell Fuels, sponsor of the Nidderdale Junior Cricket League said:
“As cricketing enthusiasts ourselves, we are proud that Kettlewell Fuels’ sponsorship contributes to the development of cricket across the district. It’s so good to see the juniors taking part and building on the progress they have made in previous seasons and to welcome even more teams to the league this season, this is exactly what we were hoping would happen!”
