The club, which is based just a short distance from the homebuilder’s Rowan Manor development in Wigan Road, has received a cash boost of £500 to purchase new kits for the coming season.

Andrew Stringfellow, chairman at Euxton Cricket Club, said: “It’s great that a national company as established as Taylor Wimpey is supporting the club. Donations like this are crucial as they enable us to provide the facilities we do for so many local people.

“New kits are essential for all of our players, so we’re over the moon to have Taylor Wimpey’s support as one of our junior sponsors.

“It truly is very much appreciated by the whole club.”

The club’s junior division has five teams, ranging from Under-nines up to under 18s – and is based at Balshaw Park.

Sue Irving, sales manager at Taylor Wimpey North West, said: “It’s an absolute pleasure to be associated with Euxton Cricket Club – especially as they are based so close to our Rowan Manor development.

“We’re delighted that our sponsorship is making such a huge difference and we wish them all the best for the coming season.”
