It has been confirmed today that Jersey Cricket will receive support from Jersey Post for the next three years.
Jersey Post recently worked with Jersey Cricket ahead of the World Cricket League Division 4 tournament in Los Angeles in October 2016 where the team looked to gain promotion to Division 3. Following this partnership, an agreement has now been signed that sees Jersey Post offering support to the team for both on and off-island matches until 2019.
Tim Brown, Jersey Post Chief Executive stated, “The support we are offering Jersey Cricket fits perfectly with our desire to support local sport both on and off-island and provides stability for local cricketers pursuing their desires for sporting success. Moreover, it provides on-island residents with a chance to get behind, and show support for our local sportsmen and women as they take their talent, and our island, overseas.”
The support will see Jersey Post as the main headline sponsor of Jersey Cricket at all major matches locally and overseas, as well as at the forthcoming junior inter insulars. A more light-hearted part of the agreement will see the Jersey Cricket team providing coaching help and advice to Jersey Post’s own cricket team ahead of their annual inter insular match with Guernsey Post in April this year; a fixture that has eluded the Jersey Post team for the past few years.
Chris Minty, Chief Executive of the Jersey Cricket Board added, “We are truly thrilled and grateful to be able to work on a more long-term basis with Jersey Post. Their assistance with the team in the USA last year was invaluable and the company’s support over the next three years comes at a very exciting time for Jersey Cricket.”
