Robert Watts Estate Agents has committed to supporting Gomersal Cricket Club for a further two years, having already been the main sponsor of the club for six years.

As a family estate agent that has been in business for over 40 years, John, James and Kate Watts are passionate about supporting the local community; the lockdown period was particularly difficult for many community groups and charities as fundraising events could not go ahead as planned.

The contributions made by the estate agent allow the cricket club to fund their facilities, kit and running costs to provide an engaging and safe environment for both children and adults alike. The Robert Watts name and logo will remain on the club shirts, from junior cricket level up to the first and second senior teams.

Gomersal Cricket Club is just a short distance from the Watts’ Cleckheaton office.

John Watts, Managing Director (Sales) at Robert Watts, commented: “We are delighted to continue our long-standing sponsorship partnership with Gomersal Cricket Club, which now extends for over six years and will run until March 2022.

“They are a club close to my heart as both my sons play for the junior teams and they have always been very welcome and supportive. As with many clubs, they have a tough time due to Covid-19 and we were keen to help in any way we could.”

On behalf of the club, Jason Bloom added: “In an extremely challenging climate we thank Robert Watts for their valued support without which, funding both senior and junior cricket would be difficult. Their generous contribution helps enormously with our facilities, kit and running costs and enables us to continue to provide a great environment for our cricket members, their family and friends.

“It will be worn by both our senior teams and our junior teams. Gomersal Cricket Club would like to thank John and his team for their valued support and we look forward to playing some cricket after a challenging time for our members and people across the country.”
