Sprowston Cricket Club Sponsorship
NMG Kia is pleased to announce their latest sponsorship venture with local team Sprowston Cricket Club, based at Barkers Lane, Sprowston. The Club have two senior teams that play in the Norfolk Alliance and two in the Norfolk League. The thriving junior section has teams representing the Club in age groups from under 11 to under 17.
NMG have sponsored the Club previously in a more low key level, but this year as a result of the Club's involvement with Youth Coaching and Mentoring an exciting new opportunity arose and the Club asked for NMG's support.
Chris Conway - NMG Kia's Sales Manager said, "We are delighted to be involved in this venture and as a parent myself, I appreciate that developing sport in our children is all important, this agreement between NMG and SCC will help Matt to get about whilst here in the UK, promote the Club and Kia of course and his coaching, we wish him and the Club every success"
Simon Chipperfield - SCC Club Captain said "For SCC being able to bring Matt over from Australia for 6 months and support him through the Club with accommodation and now with NMG on travel shows our Club commitment to developing young talent and trying to get children involved in healthy outdoor pursuits, hopefully Matt will recognise some future England stars whilst coaching. We are very grateful for the excellent support provided by NMG."
Matthew Foster or Matt as he prefers to be known is an exciting All-Rounder from the Western Suburbs of Sydney. A consistent representative for New South Wales (NSW) at age group level over the last few years, Matt was also a member of the extended Australian U19 squad for the 2012 World Cup. In October 2012, Matt was named in the NSW 2nd XI squad for the very first time, a fantastic achievement and reflects his promising ability as a genuine all-rounder with potential for higher honours. A quality middle-order Batsman and an economical, yet wicket-taking Fast/Medium Bowler, Matt is one of the more promising young talents within the State of NSW. A strong coach and excellent fielder, Matt will be a popular choice for Sprowston Cricket Club. Matt is travelling to the UK with his partner Gemma Steenson for the 2013 season and Matt is also coaching in several local schools as well as representing the Club.Â
