National award

Fantastic news from the national Club Awards, held in Manchester – Newcastle Cricket Club has won the Marketing Club of the Year for the second year running!

Thanks are due to the many volunteers and organisations which have made this possible: Elanders printers who provide our annual printed programme each year, more than two dozen volunteers who deliver them to 5000 homes and businesses, Tony Whaling our webmaster, and the student placements who have taken our social media and marketing forward, especially Dale and Jen. And we couldn’t have achieved this without our superb designer Darren Cairney and photographer Steve Brock!

The club was also shortlisted in the categories for Cricket Club of the Year and also Community Club of the Year.

More than a thousand clubs enter these prestigious awards, which were this year presented by TV Sports Broadcaster John Inverdale.
