The King’s School is delighted to announce a
three-year sponsorship deal by Macclesfield law firm SAS Daniels, who have come
on board to support King’s cricket.
The sponsorship package includes funding for new first
XI kit for both limited overs and timed cricket matches, with further funding
used down the school to help cricketers of all ages. The package will also
enable the school to live stream all matches for pupils, parents and the wider
cricket community to enjoy.
SAS Daniels Joint Head of Employment & Head of
their Education Unit, Steve Foster, said: “King’s cricket has been at the heart
of Macclesfield sport for over 100 years and SAS Daniels is delighted to be
part of their team both for this season and as they move to their spectacular
new setting from 2020.”
SAS Daniels Solicitor, Warren Moores, added: “We hope
our support helps all those involved at King’s cricket to develop their own
sporting and personal development”.
Under coaches, former county pace bowler Andy (AJ)
Harris and former Cheshire player Steve Moores, the Macclesfield
school’s First XI are aiming for a strong season.
They boast four county players with captain and tough
all-rounder Angus Thomson and elegant opener Joey Chong both having played
for Cheshire and leg spinning all-rounder Harry Elms and pugnacious left-hand
bat George Holden having played for Derbyshire. Alderley Edge second XI fast
bowler Will Fosbrook will spearhead the attack with his nippy swing and
Head of King’s Cricket Steve Moores said: “We are
delighted to welcome SAS Daniels as our new partners and hope they will enjoy
the next three seasons as much as our players. Their support for the
development of our young athletes is very much appreciated.”
