Cricket club doffs cap to firm
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.”
