This exclusive deal sees NFU Central-South Warwickshire become K&D’s first dedicated sponsor for Women and Girls' Cricket.

Knowle & Dorridge Cricket Club is proud to announce a five-year partnership deal that sees NFU Mutual Central-South Warwickshire become the club’s first dedicated sponsor for women and girls’ cricket.

The exclusive partnership arrangement includes sponsorship of club kit, match livestreaming, player of the year award, and other exciting opportunities to support the development and growth of female cricket.

NFU Mutual Central-South Warwickshire is an NFU Mutual agency with strong ties to Knowle, Dorridge and the surrounding area. Specialising in high quality bespoke home, business and rural insurance, as well as financial services, the business places a strong emphasis as a mutual company on supporting the communities in which it operates.

The club set an ambitious plan to support the continued growth of the women and girls cricket programme. A key part of the plan was appointing Chloe Hill as the club’s first Head of Women and Girls' Cricket and holding dedicated winter and summer training sessions.

As a result the club has been able to enter a record number of female teams in 2024 – with a dedicated Under 11s XI, a new Women’s Development XI and the Under 13s and 15s progressing well in the ECB national competitions.

Chloe Hill, Head of Women & Girls' Cricket said: “I'm delighted to have secured a long-term partnership commitment with NFU Mutual. Their commitment will help us create a thriving and sustainable women’s and girls’ programme. Even with the weather being against us this year, we are striving to provide as much cricket as possible for our female members over the coming seasons.

“Developing women’s and girls’ cricket is really important to K&D and it’s great to see the game thriving across Warwickshire. All the players are really looking forward to working with NFU Mutual.”

Danny James, Managing Partner of NFU Mutual Central-South Warwickshire said: “Interest in woman and girls’ cricket has exploded in recent years, and the game has been transformed by the Hundred, increased tv and radio coverage of the domestic as well as international game, and the continued success of our national team.

“Sustaining that momentum requires real investment and commitment at the grassroots level, so we are delighted to support the ambitious plans at Knowle & Dorridge to build a strong and successful programme for women and girls in this community.”
