Northern Cricket Union Bowled over with Three Year Sponsorship Deal with Robinson Services


The country’s biggest cricket league is to be sponsored by one of the country’s biggest employers. Robinson Services , one of Northern Ireland’s largest Support Services providers with its Head office in Antrim and other satellite offices in Belfast has announced it is lending its name to the Northern Cricket Union’s Premier and Senior Leagues in a sponsorship deal over the next three years. Robinson Service will also sponsor the awards to players who score a century, take six wickets or perform a hat trick.

It’s not surprising that Robinson Services have chosen to support the Northern Cricket Union. The four divisions of the company’s business which David Robinson , Managing Director at Robinson Services describes as ‘a winning batting order ’ – Cleaning, Hygiene, Security and Laundry – rely on the same qualities for success as in any team sport: commitment, passion, talent, and excellence.

David Robinson Managing Director,Robinson Services had this to say on the Sponsorship agreement:
“There are many parallels between Robinson Services and sport in relation to the people we work with. We both rely on experience and expertise to train staff and players to the highest standard, featuring the latest techniques and with trained staff offering support at all times.
Such dedicated training of our staff has produced a sports style work-rate for Robinson Services and delighted our top clients including  Forestside Shopping Centre, McDonalds, Tesco, Lisney Belfast and The National Trust. The company continues to go from strength to strength, and along with Alan Waite, Chairman Northern Cricket Union  we hope that our support for the Northern Cricket Union will yield a successful  3 year period  for both parties involved in the partnership.”
 Alan Waite, Chairman, Northern Cricket Union commented further :
“We would like to thank Robinson Services for their fantastic support and it it was David’s  love affair with cricket — he was once captain and a very capable wicket-keeper of the 3rd XI at Muckamore Cricket Club – his words not mine –  and is now a trustee of the Muckamore club —  that has led to today’s sponsorship deal for the Northern Cricket Union’s premier and senior leagues. We know as a company Robinson Services are keen to support community projects such as Antrim Festival in addition to sponsorship of many local sports teams . We are delighted with this sponsorship and we look forward to working with Robinson Services over the next three years.”
