AFA Fostering is delighted to continue our sponsorship of Egerton Park Cricket Club in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.
The home club of Stuart Broad, England and Nottinghamshire star bowler and all-rounder, Egerton Park was established in 1882 and has a long tradition of supporting youth cricket, with junior teams playing at all age groups.
As well as sponsoring shirts for the Under 10s and under 11s, AFA Fostering are also helping to refurbish the cricket nets and are providing a rebound catching net to help the young people to develop their all important fielding skills.
Richard Haffenden, Manager and Coach for the Egerton Park Under 11s, said “The Sponsorship by AFA is greatly appreciated and has really helped us to meet some of the costs involved in running Junior Cricket in the area”.
Although rain has affected a number of games so far, the under 11s team have made a winning start to the season and the under 13s team have also had a couple of great wins in their opening matches
