Rosudgeon & Kenneggy Cricket Club has this week announced a new sponsor as the 2022 cricket season gets underway.

Finest Retreats, which manages 32 properties across the county, has stepped in as the Club’s main sponsor for the new campaign.

Rosudgeon & Kenneggy Cricket Club has a number of senior and youth teams and their first XI, otherwise known as ‘The Dear Lambs’, currently tops Division Six West of the Cornwall Cricket League.

Chairman Andrew Badcock said: “This sponsorship will make a huge difference to the Club this season, in terms of upkeep and maintenance of the pitch and facilities. It will also help us to maintain our junior training sessions, encouraging local children into the game.”

Announcing the sponsorship, Richard Bond, owner of Finest Retreats said: “We are delighted to support this real community cricket club that provides a valuable activity for everyone in the local area.

We’ve always been keen to demonstrate the advantages that tourism businesses bring to the local area through local employment and community ties such as this.”

Mr Bond said that his company is already talking to other clubs across the region to potentially establish similar partnerships.
