Ch­ester­gate jew­eller’s PR back­ing club’s on­field gems

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

Olly Smith and Andy Moores brought Macc back into the game.

When Smith de­parted for a bril­liant 46, Moores con­tin­ued with at­tack­ing in­tent and didn’t panic when two more wick­ets fell, leav­ing the score on 116-6.

Brother, Mitch, then came to the crease and sup­ported Andy ad­mirably, as the pair added 48 to en­sure Macc won by four wick­ets with plenty of overs to spare.

Andy fin­ished on a match-win­ning 74 not out, as Macc take 25 points, to Alder­ley’s 6. MAC­CLES­FIELD Cricket Club is de­lighted to an­nounce Ch­ester­gate based lo­cal watch­maker and jew­eller PR Jones as a ma­jor spon­sor for the next three years.

Pro­pri­etors Micky and David, and their mother Greeba and late fa­ther Philip, have for many years been ac­tive sup­port­ers of the club and reg­u­lar vis­i­tors to Vic­to­ria Road.

Micky com­mented: ‘The fam­ily have had many en­joy­able times watch­ing cricket at Mac­cles­field but we feel, as a lo­cal busi­ness, it is im­por­tant to sup­port our lo­cal teams. Spon­sor­ing both the se­niors and the very ac­tive ju­nior sec­tion just seems the right thing to do.”

Micky re­cently went to the club to seal the ar­range­ment with club chair­man Si­mon Grif­fiths and Club pres­i­dent Roger Moss and then met the first and sec­ond teams, who were both play­ing at home. Si­mon thanked PR Jones for their com­mit­ment and faith in the club and looked forward to a suc­cess­ful part­ner­ship.
