PARTNERSHIP: Commonwealth Bank Port Lincoln branch manager Julie Lloyd and Wayback Cricket Club president Andrew Woolford celebrate the funding commitment.

Wayback Cricket Club is expressing its gratitude to Commonwealth Bank after the bank pledged funding through a CommBank Cricket Club Sponsorship.

The sponsorship establishes a two year partnership with cricket clubs which includes funding, cricket gear and merchandise.

With this sponsorship Wayback will receive $2000 each year along with new equipment for matches including a marquee, stumps and ground markers.

Club president Andrew Woolford said the club was grateful for the funding, which would go towards extra training equipment and upkeep of its cricket nets.

“Any funding like this makes a difference, whether it be upkeep here or for training equipment to make sure everything is up to scratch and safe,” he said.

Mr Woolford said the equipment would make a difference particularly for the juniors.

The club has also received a bat signed by Mike Hussey that will be raffled off at its presentation night on April 8.

CommBank Cricket Club is in its third year with the bank maintaining its commitment to support grass roots cricket.

Commonwealth Bank Port Lincoln branch manager Julie Lloyd said the bank was delighted to lend its support to Wayback.

“It’s great to be able to help Wayback Cricket Club because we know they do an excellent job in supporting local cricketers,” she said.

“They are clearly very worthy recipients of our sponsorship and we’re thrilled to have established a partnership with them.”
