Ammanford Cricket Club is receiving funds from an independent insurance broker as part of a ‘teaming up’ between the two organisations.

Towergate Insurance Brokers will provide funds for the cricket club to help cover costs of running the club and maintaining the playing surface at Ammanford Park.

The insurance brokers will also donate two prizes of fourball golf at St Pierre and Machynys for the club’s charity day, due to take place later in the season.

The partnership will see Towergate sponsor the upcoming Premier League match at home to Neath on July 30, receiving exclusive access to one of the club balconies, featuring in the coin toss and appearing in matchday programmes.

Ammanford Cricket Club is focused on developing grass roots cricket, having over 150 juniors registered with the club.

Peter Davies, club chair, said: “We’re really pleased to have Towergate Insurance Brokers on board as a sponsor this season, supporting our club as we continue to grow stronger after the pandemic.

“Towergate is well known here in south-west Wales and have strong links with the sporting world, so having an association with such a large company will hopefully help enhance the wider attraction of the club.”

Howard Phillips, Account Executive, at Towergate Insurance Brokers, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Ammanford Cricket Club this season, helping them continue to provide cricketing opportunities to so many in the town.

“This partnership was a natural fit for us as we have a lot of expertise in providing insurance to sporting clubs and associations, having worked with the Cardiff Devils and West Wales Rugby Union already this year.

“We look forward to watching the first team in the South Wales Premier League, particularly seeing Andrew Salter and Billy Root in action, and wish them the very best for the rest of the season.”

Towergate Insurance Brokers, which has over 60 offices nationwide, has a strong Welsh presence and a long-standing relationship with sporting teams across the country, having sponsored ice hockey team the Cardiff Devils since 2019.
