A junior cricket team has been bowled over by sponsorship from a Yorkshire hotel.

Richmondshire under-11s are sporting the logo of the Wensleydale Heifer on their shirts this season as they compete in the North Yorkshire Area Cricket Council North Division.

The sponsorship is paying dividends because the team currently lie third in the table, having won seven of their nine matches, with their two losses coming early in the season when they were still finding their feet.

They are now hoping to finish the season strongly with two more games remaining in their league campaign before they begin their quest to win the under-11s Gamera Cup.

Owner of The Wensleydale Heifer, Lewis Moss, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Richmondshire under-11s for the 2018 season and it’s great to see them doing so well in their league.

“As a business based in Richmondshire, it’s pleasing to be able to support an organisation which provides fantastic sporting opportunities to young people from the District.”

Mike White, manager of the Richmondshire under-11s, said: “We would like to thank The Wensleydale Heifer for their kind sponsorship of the team.

“As a club, we have a thriving junior section for children aged three to 17 and it is through the generosity of local businesses like The Wensleydale Heifer which supports us to maintain this.”
