A sports club at the heart of a Wirral community has signed a new sponsorship deal.

Neston Cricket Club has entered into partnership with Daresbury-based business advisory group Dow Schofield Watts.

The club, which was founded in 1881, has more than 1,200 active members and offers much more than just cricket. Members can also play hockey, squash and tennis, as well as bridge, boules and bowls, while there is a thriving golf society too.

The club is renowned for hosting major social events including the annual Marquee Week which attracts businesses and guests from across the North West.

Tony Bush, Neston CC’s president, said: “We are delighted to welcome Dow Schofield Watts as our new sponsor.

“Both organisations have strong brands and reputations and there is a great cultural fit in terms of forward thinking, quality and success.”
