Fab 4 agree to Sponsor TCC
Thornham Cricket Club is delighted to announce we have partnered with four local businesses to allow the club to purchase some new coloured kit ahead of the 2021 season. The Commercial pub in Castleton, Southern Cross Heating and Plumbing, Forever Composite and The Phenomenal Group have all agreed to sponsor the club for the next 3 seasons. The kit will be used in First XI Cup and T20 games.
The Commercial is a pub which is based in the local village of Castleton. Peter and Joanne Kelly have owned the pub for several years and always support the cricket club when it comes to raffle prizes and the like.
The Commercial is a friendly pub with a great atmosphere – perfect for getting a good pint at a decent price from local people who really do care about their community.
Peter was a good friend of the late Sam Micklethwaite and was delighted to get involved at the club which meant so much to Sam. You can find out more about the pub by heading to their Facebook page here.
Southern Cross Plumbing & Heating
Southern Cross Plumbing & Heating is owned by our very own First XI wicketkeeper Ged Walsh. Ged started his own business after a once in a lifetime trip to Australia which is where the Southern Cross connection comes from.
Ged offers various different aspects of service to cover all your heating and plumbing needs; from tap washers to full bathroom suites, radiator moves to full central heating installations.
The business also covers all domestic gas appliances and comes in at a very competitive price. Southern Cross is based out of the Middleton/Manchester area. To find out more information please see his Facebook page on the link here.
Forever Composite is linked to Thornham through another club contact in Simon Towler. The company sells outdoor decorative decking made from eco-friendly recycled materials - Forever Composite decking looks and feels just like natural wood but has advantages like being very low maintenance, doesn’t crack, warp, rot or splinter and is less slippery when wet than natural wood.
Forever composite decking is an investment that in time will save you a lot of hard work, time and money. With no need to sand, paint or seal every year just think of all the crucial time you will save to spend with friends and family sat out in the garden on your brand new Forever Composite decking.

Each year we look for different sponsorship opportunities at grassroots/amateur level to support Cricket and Football clubs whether that be through advertising boards or by advertising on playing/training wear of clubs as we feel it is important for businesses to become part of clubs to help them grow whilst raising brand awareness at the same time.
As part of sponsoring Thornham CC we are offering any member that owns a business the opportunity to receive discounts on our services during 2021 should they wish to take advantage of agency standard support.

Chairman Andrew Micklethwaite was effusive in his response to the news: “It’s really great to be able to bring in some sponsorship revenue during what is a very difficult time for all local businesses. The Club works very hard behind the scenes on a lot of things which never really get too much exposure, so to be able to announce a real tangible benefit to our playing members for the upcoming season is a delight.
The Commercial have long supported the Club behind the scenes, and it is nice to be able to have a visual representation of their ongoing support. My thanks go also to all the other sponsors, some of whom have a personal connection with the Club. That Ged and Simon of Southern Cross and Forever Composite respectively can see fit to support their Club financially really makes me think we must be doing something right, and I hope the partnership with Phenomenal Group proves long-lasting and fruitful to both parties. It is very pleasing to have you all on board.
My thanks must also go to Joe Pattison who has worked extremely hard leading on this particular project and it is nice to see it come to fruition. Hopefully we will be able to put in some good performances on the field and do our new sponsors proud!”
