One of Western Storm’s longest standing partnerships is continuing.
Somerset County Sports will once again be one of the team’s main partners in 2019.
The two organisations have been successfully working together since the introduction of the KIA Super League in 2016.
Somerset County Sports have a long history of supporting women’s cricket and have sponsored a number of the Storm players including Anya Shrubsole, Fran Wilson and Sophie Luff.
Regarding the continuation of this partnership Western Storm General Manager, Lisa Pagett said: “Somerset County Sports have been one of our biggest supporters since the KSL was launched back in 2016. Richard Brice and his team have a history of backing both the men’s and the women’s game at a local and national level and we are delighted that our partnership is continuing this year.
“I can’t thank Richard enough for everything he has done for us over the last few years and we are proud that the SCS logo is on our playing shirts again this year.”
Richard Brice, CEO of Somerset County Sports said: “Western Storm and the KSL as a whole have done wonders for the women’s game over the last few years and we are proud to have been able to play a small part in that. The women’s game continues to go from strength to strength, and to see local players that we have worked with for a long time such as Anya, Fran and Sophie playing a huge role in that can only be good for the game in the region at all levels.”
As part of the partnership between the two organisations this year, SCS helped to organise a special team building day for the squad with Channel Adventure at the Centre for Outdoor Activity & Community Hub (COACH) which is based at French Weir, Taunton.
Channel Adventure provide safe and fun activities such as kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing and much more.
Following the event Western Storm Head Coach, Trevor Griffin said: “Team spirit and a good camaraderie are absolutely vital in any successful squad. I can’t thank SCS enough for helping us to arrange this event. It was great fun and I know that everyone took something positive from the day. Dan Brice and everyone at Channel Adventure were superb, and it’s a day that everyone will remember for quite a while.”
