Shoosmiths is sponsoring Northampton County Cricket Club for a whole season and supporting a Royal London One Day Cup cricket game between Northants Cricket's Steelbacks and Worcestershire Royals, on Tuesday 29 July at Campbell Park in Milton Keynes.
The firm, which has a major presence in both Northampton and Milton Keynes, has been keen to partner with one of the region's major sporting brands. The 50-over game will be played in the beautiful setting of Campbell Park in the very centre of Milton Keynes and Shoosmiths will be the main sponsor.
Shoosmiths senior associate Simon Fennell said: 'This will be the first major game held at Campbell Park this year and we're proud to be associated with it. Northants Cricket have been looking for the support of the local business community as they work to build stronger links with Milton Keynes, and we are happy to have signed a formal agreement with Northants Cricket and work with them on this match.
'With Shoosmiths' presence in both Milton Keynes and Northampton and our sponsorship of the club for a season, it made perfect business sense for us to link up with them for this match. This game brings both towns together, and will be a fantastic community event.'
Northants Cricket chief executive David Smith said: 'I am delighted to welcome Shoosmiths on board as sponsors of Northants Cricket, particularly as we return to Campbell Park in Milton Keynes in July.
'We wanted to team up with Shoosmiths since both brands share a strong history & heritage in both Northampton & Milton Keynes. It's great to see support from local business supporting Northants Cricket and we are sure this venture will benefit both partners.'
The game begins at 10.30am on 29 July and promises to be a great day out for all the family. Tickets for this game are available on the Northants Cricket website or for more information, contact NCCC reception via email at [email protected] or call 01604 514455.
