HRV goes into bat for Northland Junior Cricket
Northland junior cricketers are in for an exciting season with HRV Whangarei announcing a sponsorship deal with the Northland Cricket Association (NCA).
HRV, sponsors of the HRV Cup Twenty20 series, will support almost 4,000 junior players from Warkworth to Kaitaia through the junior club competitions and the HRV Northland school competitions.
HRV Whangarei Managing Director Anthony Lock is delighted to be associated with such a well respected association as NCA.
“It’s been very important for us to support cricket at a grassroots level. NCA has a strong focus on developing young cricketers which closely aligns with HRV’s core values of home and family. We’re looking forward to supporting our junior cricketers and working with NCA to unearth the next Daniel Vettori or Tim Southee,” says Lock.
HRV also wanted to recognise the value and time coaches commit to the development of junior cricket by supporting the association’s volunteers.
Gary Bell, Chief Executive of the Northland Cricket Association, says the association is looking forward to what promises to be a great summer of cricket with its new sponsor.
“HRV has done a lot to raise the profile of domestic cricket in New Zealand and we’re delighted to have them on board as an association sponsor. The partnership will support the development of junior cricket and foster the involvement of our volunteers,” says Bell.
The Northland Cricket Association is one of the country’s largest cricket associations, covering some 300km from Warkworth to Kaitaia and supporting 12 representative teams and development squads for men and women across all ages.
The HRV Whangarei junior club competition kicks off on 16 October. Visit www.northcricket.co.nz for a schedule of upcoming matches.
