Darwin Escapes announce a new two year partnership with Guernsey Cricket.
Darwin Escapes are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Guernsey Cricket as the National Team and Under 19 Sponsor for the next two years.
As part of the partnership Darwin Escapes’ logos will be featured on the 2021 Guernsey Cricket kit including a shirt which was designed by a Year 5 student from Amherst School. Tori Topley, who entered her design into the ‘Design a Guernsey National Team Shirt’ competition ran by Guernsey Cricket during the lockdown earlier this year. The competition received a total of 50 entries and Tori’s design was selected as the winner.
Marketing Manager Fiona Bousfield said: “We are always looking for highly regarded clubs and businesses that align with our values and we felt that Guernsey Cricket would be a great fit. We’re excited to build our relationship and work with all the team.”
Cricket has been played in Guernsey since the late 19th century and the Guernsey Cricket Association, which now has over 30 clubs, was founded in 1927. On the island all 15 junior schools and 5 secondary schools play cricket with school visits and tournaments arranged by Guernsey Cricket.
Speaking about the new partnership, Mark Latter Guernsey Cricket CEO said: “With so much uncertainty in the world today the show of faith in Guernsey Cricket by Darwin Escapes is amazing.
“We are really excited to be working with the team there and look forward to promoting their brand. We will be looking for new, innovative and exciting ways to bring each other’s activities and offers to the wider cricket public.”
