Local estate agent, Property Shop has solidified its reputation as a community focused organisation by confirming an extended two-year shirt sponsorship and arena naming rights deal with the town’s historic cricket club. It was founded in 1846 making it one of the oldest clubs in the Lancashire league.
The partnership between Property Shop and Accrington Cricket Club began in 2018. The relationship has been so positive for both sides, they’ve agreed to extend the deal for two years.
Steven Chippendale from Property Shop said of the deal, “Accrington Cricket Club means a lot to us and we’re proud to be their main sponsor. This is a historically important club. Its contribution to Accrington, and to English cricket, cannot be understated.
“Generations of people from Accrington have played cricket on this ground and even more have been spectators. It’s an honour to be a part of that history.”
Property Shop is an independent, family-run business and their expert staff all live in the local area too. Len Dewhurst, Chairman of Accrington Cricket Club, commented,
“We’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone at Property Shop. This year has been very challenging for us with the coronavirus restrictions but we’re looking forward to getting back into our whites and a brighter future with Property Shop.”
