• Midshire becomes cricket club sponsor

        • Midshire has announced it is now a sponsor of the Charlesworth & Chisworth Cricket Club for the 2018/2019 season.

          Formed from the amalgamation of the Charlesworth and Chisworth Clubs in 1895, the joint team now has two senior, three junior, and a ladies team, who all compete in the Derbyshire and Cheshire Cricket League at various levels.

          The club strives to lay the foundations for a lifelong passion for physical activity to children by hosting the ECB All Stars Course this year, which provides an 8-week activity and game based programme to 5-8 year olds of all skill levels.

          Terry Brown, Secretary for the club said, “everyone at the Charlesworth & Chisworth Cricket Club would like to thank Midshire unreservedly for their support, we really cannot survive without the generous help of our sponsors. The money they’ve provided us with will be used to transport our junior players who otherwise wouldn’t be able to get to games, so we really can’t thank them enough.

          “We’re seeing an influx in young people coming to us wanting to learn cricket because its increasingly being dropped by schools. It’s very encouraging, but for us it means we must raise even more funds and find even more sponsors to provide people in the community with the space to do what they love.

          “We’re always on the lookout for enthusiastic new players, as an England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) accredited club we offer ECB approved coaching to all of our junior members, so you never know, come join us and you could go far.”

          Located in the Bankside area of Charlesworth, Derbyshire, the small village club uses a modern facility complete with function rooms, a quirky bar, and kitchen space, all run by dedicated volunteers, who rely almost entirely on donations from fundraising initiatives and sponsorship support.

          Julian Stafford, Managing Director of Midshire added, “we actually got to know the club because one of our ex-employees plays for them, their passion for the game really shines through. At Midshire, we’re passionate about healthy initiatives and encouraging healthy living, so when the opportunity came to sponsor Charlesworth & Chisworth we jumped at it.”
