Hi Verwood,

I am posting you from Kingfisher Beer with what I think will be a very interesting Sponsorship proposal for your club.

Let me start by telling you a little about Kingfisher:

โ€ข Indiaโ€™s No1 beer brand with a long standing and deep-rooted association with cricket.
โ€ข On a global level we were the official beer of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017 and we sponsor six IPL teams.
โ€ข In the UK, we are the official beer of Sussex CCC, Middlesex CCC and Lashings. We also have ongoing partnerships with Wisden, Cricket Scotland, Gray Nicolls and the MCC Foundation.

We are currently looking to further build our relationship with cricket by sponsoring a number of amateur cricket clubs like yours.

How could our partnership work?

โ€ข Kingfisher has significant funds to invest in your club.
โ€ข In return we would look for some branding in, or around, your ground plus Kingfisher being sold on draught in your clubhouse.
โ€ข We would be happy to enter into a 3-year deal and the agreement would be underpinned by how much beer we can sell in the clubhouse. The more beer you can sell; the more investment you can access!

My contact details are :

[email protected]

07421 459 339

Let me know if this would be something of interest to you.

Kind regards,

Andrew
Happy 50th year in the club Richard Pearson.

๐ŸŽ‰ A huge congratulations to Lauren Smithson! Wow! ๐ŸŽ‰

We are delighted to announce that last night at the ECB national awards ceremony Lauren was awarded the ECB Young Coach Of The Year for 2022!!!

For several years Lauren had been the only female member of our youth section and had been keen to increase girlsโ€™ participation at VCC. She got involved with the 8 week All Stars programme in 2021, where a third of our attendees were girls. She gained confidence beyond her years to lead some of the sessions. Her commitment and enthusiasm obviously had an effect, as 90% of the girls who attended All Stars returned over the winter for training. The impact of her work directly led to the formation of our very first girls team (U9s).

Over the winter, the club also ran an 8-week โ€˜Introduction to Cricketโ€™ for girls aged 12-17years, to try and bridge the gap between the U9s girls and our ladies softball team, the Verwood Vixens. Lauren coordinated the 8-week course, planning all the sessions superbly and leading them under supervision. She was not fazed by quiet, self-conscious teenagers, managing to get the best out of all those who attended. Some were so inspired they joined VCC in the summer, either playing with the Vixens or trying age group hardball cricket.

The growth of girls membership numbers in our youth section has without doubt been influenced by Laurenโ€™s enthusiasm and commitment to inspire the next generation of female players. The success is in the numbers - growing from 1 (herself) to 20 in 18 months.

Because of the positive impact Lauren had with the younger girls, the club asked if she would like to lead the sessions for the Verwood Vixens over the summer. She took up the challenge and delivered creatively planned, fun sessions, while maturely accounting for the variation in skill, fitness, and age of the team (many are 3 times her own age!).

Lauren is an absolute asset to VCC and we are honoured and humbled that she is a part of our great club.
