This extension of our sponsorship agreement reinforces our commitment to local sport and the exciting future that lies ahead for Kent County Cricket Club."

Kent Cricket CEO, Jamie Clifford commented on the partnership; “in challenging times it is very encouraging to have current partners, and a local company, extending the length and breadth of their relationship with the Club. The team at Cardy have been outstanding partners in the redevelopment of the St Lawrence Ground and their commercial support is helping us to develop a solid financial base.”
