Penciuik Cricket Club have began their new season with a new name, thanks to a major sponsorship deal with a difference.
Solicitors Stuart & Stuart, an existing sponsor , have signed a new three-year deal which has seen the club become Stuart & Stuart Penicuik Cricket Club.
Stewart Davidson from the Kirkhill club explained more about this unique deal.
He said: “During the season ending 2012 the club decided to re-structure and implement a five-year plan.
“To do that successfully we needed to increase interest in the club and raise awareness to the local community.
“Stuart & Stuart had been a major sponsor for many years. An agreement was reached for them to become our main sponsor for a three-year period.
“They have invested in the club and shown tremendous support in our future.
“Partners Douglas Bowen and Peter Atkinson in particular have shown a great interest in the club.
“As part of the sponsorship deal the club now plays under the name Stuart & Stuart Penicuk CC in both our Saturday leagues.
“So new playing kit has been purchased with the company logo. ”
This Saturday, Penicuik’s first XI are at home, weather permitting, against Carlton’s second XI in the ESCA Championship. The match is due to begin at noon at Kirkhill.
