ECB Cricket


England and Wales Cricket Board

Jewson works in partnership with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to promote cricket as a great sport to both watch and play. This also includes being involved in the ECB's NatWest CricketForce initiative, where participating cricket clubs can access a Jewson Privilege Account Scheme.

By registering for an account, clubs are able to receive additional funding from the ECB to make general ground improvements. To get involved clubs make an initial payment of £50 into their Jewson account which will then have £350 added to it by ECB at no further cost to the club. This money can then be spent at Jewson branches on materials or tools nationwide at preferential rates, to help clubs with their projects.

Working with the ECB also allows Jewson employees to get involved in supporting local cricket club refurbishment plans. Whether the task is painting or renovating, the Jewson employees are always keen to lend a hand and offer their expertise.

Paul Edwards, Director of Sales at Jewson, said: "Our work with the ECB allows us to offer local clubs exclusive promotions and discounts on building materials. Cricket is a sport played by many of our customers and their children so the partnership with the ECB was a natural fit. Employees also enjoy the opportunity to join in with various cricket club refurbishment initiatives across England and Wales, helping to maintain grounds and leave a legacy of improvements for club cricket." 

Mike Gatting, ECB's Managing Director of Cricket Partnerships, said: "We are delighted to have an on-going partnership with Jewson. Their national branch network is ideal for ensuring that cricket clubs up and down the country have access to the building materials and tools that they need to make ongoing improvements and repairs to their facilities, and the expertise offered by branch staff is second to none for offering support around choosing the right solutions for the right improvements."
