Spotlight on Shireshead & Forton Ladies Cricket Club
This is the Shireshead & Forton Ladies Cricket Club. Established two years ago and about to enter their third season, these women are quickly making a name for themselves. This year they will enter the T20 League. Our own MD, Carrie Parkinson is a member of the team.
Like many small sports clubs they are dependent on funding and sponsorships. As part of their marketing strategy they sell silicone wristbands in order to raise funds and increase awareness. Their eye-catching bands have been designed in the club’s colours and customised with icons from their logo. Their website address is also prominent, allowing supporters to keep up with news, fixtures and league tables.
We work with many sports clubs in this way, helping them to increase recognition and raise funds for everyday running costs.
For further information about the Shireshead and Forton Ladies Cricket Club, you can follow them on Twitter or visit their website. If you would like to purchase a wristband or make a donation, visit their Just Giving page. They’re looking to attract new members and supporters, so do get in touch with them if you’re interested.
