Online fulfilment and supply chain solutions specialist, Walker Logistics, has renewed its sponsorship agreement with Gloucestershire County Cricket Club (CCC) and will once again be the front-of-shirt sponsor for Gloucestershire’s Talent Pathway teams for the new cricket season.

Established to identify the most talented local cricketers at a young age, Gloucestershire’s Talent Pathway delivers professional coaching to budding players with the aim of turning them into first class batters and bowlers.

all Gloucestershire CCC Talent Pathway teams – from the under 10s to the under 18s, as well as the club’s Academy side – will take to the field wearing shirts that prominently display the Walker logo.

Walker Logistics’ Sales & Marketing Director, Charlie Walker, commented: “We are delighted to continue our close relationship with Gloucestershire Cricket Club and proud to once again be supporting young cricketers as the front-of-shirt sponsor for Gloucestershire’s Talent Pathway teams.”

Charlie – a keen cricketer himself – added: “Supporting sport is something that Walker Logistics likes to do and partnering with a club that does so much for young people within its community is a huge source of pride for us.”

Mark Thorburn, Head of Talent Pathway at Gloucestershire Cricket Club, said: “We are very pleased to continue our special partnership with Walker Logistics for a second season. Thanks to the backing that we receive from companies such as Walker Logistics, we can nurture the next generation of Gloucestershire cricketing talent.”

Berkshire-based Walker Logistics operates from a 250,000 sq ft multi-client facility close to junction14 of the M4 motorway and is currently in the process of adding a 135,000 sq ft state-of-the-art extension to the existing site to help keep pace with the growing demand for its range of services. Construction of the multi-million-pound development is projected to be complete by the end of 2023.
