Bagnall Norton Cricket Club Junior Presentation Evening

The Blakeman family have sponsored the Bagnal Norton Cricket Club Juniors throughout the 2021 cricket season and Phil Blakeman was bowled over by the youngster’s achievements during the awards presentation evening.

The sponsorship from the Blakeman family has gone towards supporting over 70 children aged between 5 and 14 years in attending training sessions and fixtured matches throughout the season as well as helping to provide the English Cricket Board All Stars programme to children under 8 years.

Phil (Blakeman) was delighted to receive an invitation to the awards ceremony. On handing out the children’s awards and sponsorship of the team(s) Phil said:

“At Blakemans we are always keen to give back to our local communities and we were overjoyed when Tommo (Paul Tompkinson), our fresh packing team leader told us about the opportunity to sponsor the teams. Paul is the under 14’s manager for the club so it was natural that we’d want to support him in his efforts.

The club had a real family feel when I arrived for the presentation evening and all of the children and young people were so excited. It was fantastic to be able to hand out some of their well-deserved awards.”

The under 8’s team finished the season on a real high, at second place in the league.
