Neston Cricket Club founded in 1881 has more than 1,200 active members and offers cricket, hockey, squash and tennis, as well as bridge, boules, bowls and also a golf society.

With top quality facilities, the club has two county standard cricket grounds, 12 tennis courts, three squash courts and a floodlit hockey astro pitch.

The club also boasts a strong junior section and provides extensive coaching and development across all sports sections.

James Dow, co-founder of Dow Schofield Watts, said: “For well over a century, Neston Cricket Club has played an important role in raising the standards in amateur sport and encouraging participation.

"Today the club is more popular than ever, and is at the hub of a thriving community which brings together people from all walks of life.

"We are delighted to be supporting the club in its ongoing work and believe this new partnership will be beneficial for both parties.”

Club president Tony Bush said: “We are delighted to welcome Dow Schofield Watts as our new sponsor.
