Cricket players bowled over by support from Kia dealership

Time 3 years ago

LOOKERS Kia in Stockport is backing local sportswomen by providing Stockport Georgians Cricket Club with new kits this season.

The new attire was presented to the club’s ladies team in time for its first match of the season against Wistaston Village CC, which they won with a score of 135-8.

The dealership will continue to support the club throughout the season with tailored offers to players and coaches as well as cheering them on from the stands.

The donation is part of Kia’s wider Gift of Kit initiative to promote grass-roots cricket sponsorship and has also seen Lookers Kia provide new kits for Newcastle Cricket Club.

Lookers is investing in a range of grass-roots sports, with its dealerships sponsoring teams and individuals across the country, in everything from football to motocross.

On a bigger stage, Lookers Kia Stockport recently became a sponsor of Stockport County FC and has already become a recognisable name at Edgeley Park.

Matthew Royle, general sales manager at Lookers Kia Stockport, said: ‘It’s important to us that we’re not only known for the fantastic range of Kia cars we represent, but also that we’re known as a brand that supports the local community.’


Beth Garnett, Captain of Stockport Georgians Women’s 1st XI, said: ‘We’re over the moon to have received our new kits for the new season and would like to thank Lookers Kia for the fantastic support they have given us.’
