Restrata is proud to be the official sponsors of the Army Cricket Team – Men’s Senior XI.
Will Follett, former Army Cricket Captain and Head of Workforce Development and Manages Services at Restrata, said: “Having served in the armed forces for a number of years, I feel particularly proud to support the Army Men’s cricket team. I think it is important to give our backing to the brave men and women who defend our country and support them beyond their working endeavours.”
About the Sponsorship
The agreed sponsorship will contribute to the general running costs for the next two years – from new kit to travel expenses, and in this way support the development of new talent. Peter Sherland, Secretary UKAFCA/ACA/ASRA explained “The Army Cricket Association is delighted to enter into this arrangement with Restrata, allowing us to sustain the outstanding performance of our elite senior men’s team, to get more Army players into the United Kingdom Armed Forces squad and to develop new talent for the future. We are grateful for Restrata’s support for this.”
