Woodbury Cricket Club have been awarded a complete team kit, a washing machine and the use of video, and it’s very much thanks to the Exmouth Journal!
In January we published an article about the AEG Kit and Laundry Package as part of the AEG Grassroots Cricket campaign 2012.
Woodbury picked up on the article, applied to the campaign organisers, and have now been notified that they are one of then forty cricket clubs nationwide who have been fortunate enough to be selected!
The village side are set to receive a dozen Canterbury full team kits consisting of a short, trousers and cap, an AEG washing machine and the use of a video with which they are to compile a video diary about life with the washing machine at their Town Lane ground home and whichever two of the 40 clubs produces the best video will win the chance to meet England Cricket Legends!
Woodbury’s Martin Cook says: “I am delighted that we have been able to get this award and it is very much thanks to the Journal for it was in the paper where we saw the promotion. I am currently in the process of looking to launch an Under-13 side and so this has been a great start. Unlike many Cricket clubs, we actually provide team shirts for the children, similar to the way football teams provide shirts. We were actually looking to get new shirts this season for the under 13`s. This will be covered by the prize. This will now free up money to improve the coaching equipment we have for training evenings, benefitting the children and adult cricket section.
