Longridge Cricket Clubs new Cubs Squad hits a six with Tilia Homes sponsorship

Longridge Cricket Clubs new Cub’s Squad has scored a new partnership with Tilia Homes Northern, to kick start the launch of its new junior under-sevens programme.

The new squad, launched following the increasing popularity in the sport, allows for both boys and girls under seven years of age regular access to learn and develop basic cricket skills before transitioning to the club’s popular U9s squad.

Already thriving, the Cubs programme is currently working with 24 children, to add to a further 110 junior members across its U9s – U18s boys and girls club.

James Mullin, Sponsorship Manager at Longridge Cricket Club, comments: “We’re lucky at Longridge Cricket Club to have strong connections with the local community, good relationships with local schools and leagues, as well as having great teams of coaches and volunteers,

“As a result, and through our involvement with national programmes, we have seen steady growth in our junior section over the last six or seven years and no sign of this slowing. Our Cubs programme will be a fantastic additional offering to our range of junior activities and look forward to growing our offering even further.”

Through the help of generous time dedicated by volunteers, the new Cubs team looks to engender the love of cricket among the younger generations, as well as providing affordable cricket for all. All this, while welcoming new families to the club and promoting health, fitness and wellbeing.

James continues: “Local clubs like Longridge Cricket Club simply cannot survive without the support and generosity of local businesses, like Tilia Homes. Thanks to this sponsorship, were able to provide the youngsters with their own training shirts and vital equipment, which will give the group an immediate identity and sense of belonging for our inaugural programme, as well as allow us to deliver high quality sessions.

“We very much appreciate the support for our new Cubs Squad and are delighted that this is with Tilia Homes.”

Emily Horn, Sales and Marketing Director for Tilia Homes Northern, adds: “It’s our pleasure to be working with Longridge Cricket Club and promoting the important health benefits and team building skills established through grassroots sports clubs.

“We wish the Cubs lots of luck as they start their exciting journey into cricket and we’ve no doubt families from our Alston Grange development, on Preston Road, close by, will also come to know and love the popular community group.”
