As temperatures soared for the 215th first-class match between Sussex and Kent in Tunbridge Wells, Kent County Cricket Club’s Commercial Director Emma Santer announced Parker Building Supplies has become official partners of the club as part of a three year deal.
“Kent Cricket are extremely happy to be supported by Parker Building Supplies. They are a very well respected business in the South East and going from strength to strength,” Emma said. “It is always great for a club to have the support of local businesses, particularly when they have a shared desire to see the club succeed. We hope the partnership will continue for many years to come.”
Parker Building Supplies has branches in Tonbridge, Maidstone and Faversham along with a paving and landscaping centre and a kitchen and bathroom showroom in Tonbridge.
Parker Building Supplies Marketing & Communications Manager Jamie Pierce said: “We’re delighted to have become official partners of Kent Cricket. We’ve been working with the club over the last few years and feel it is the right time to take the next step in our partnership with the club.”
“We are all looking forward to working with the club and getting behind Matt, his staff and the players for a great season.”
Kent County Cricket Club CEO, Jamie Clifford, said: “With public funding scarce, it’s great that our commercial partners such as Parker Building Supplies can support us in keeping cricket at Tunbridge Wells. We thank Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club for their continuing hospitality and hope the schedule allows us to bring more first class action to the town.
