Cricket club doffs cap to firm

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

A CRICKET club are cel­e­brat­ing af­ter be­ing gifted with a new set of caps for the sea­son.

Aldi’s Poyn­ton store has pro­vided the head wear for each of the 150 ju­nior members at Poyn­ton Cricket Club.

The caps were of­fi­cially un­veiled on the club’s weekly ju­niors’ train­ing ses­sion.

Aldi has spon­sored the caps in order to sup­port the club and their on­go­ing ef­forts to pro­mote a healthy and ac­tiv­ity life­style among chil­dren in the area.

David Styan, man­ager of the branch, at­tended the train­ing ses­sion to un­veil the new caps and meet the coaches, in­clud­ing Chris Wadding­ton, and play­ers.

He said: “It was great to meet so many kids and see how much they en­joy play­ing cricket.

“We wanted to do some­thing which would ben­e­fit ev­ery ju­nior mem­ber and it was great to see all of the kids wear­ing them.

“Get­ting in­volved in com­mu­nity projects is im­por­tant to Aldi.

“I’m pleased that our new store in Poyn­ton has been able to sup­port the club in this way.”

The store, lo­cated on Lon­don Road South, opened in March to much fan­fare with Olympic cy­clist Ja­son Kenny. It cre­ated 30 new jobs. Chris Wadding­ton said: “We couldn’t be more de­lighted with the sup­port of Aldi in pro­vid­ing the caps to Poyn­ton Crick­ets Ju­nior sec­tion.

“This has al­lowed us to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity and make all 150 play­ers feel part of the club.

“The caps will be worn over the sum­mer sea­son across all ages from Un­der 8’s to Un­der 15’s and of­fer the boys and girls an at­tach­ment to the club.

“We thank Aldi for their on­go­ing sup­port with Poyn­ton Cricket club.”
