Stafford-based business networking and communications provider, Xcomm is delighted to have played its part in supporting local community grass roots sport and helping Milford Hall Cricket Club win the prestigious Village Cup.

 

Milford Hall CC is a big family club and Xcomm has sponsored the junior team at the club for three years. The club prides itself on junior development from Under-8s, through the network and, ultimately, into the senior teams. This is epitomised by the cup winning squad, as 9 out of the 13 players started as Juniors.

 

The final was held at Lord’s and has been a huge moment in the club’s history.

 

X.COMM’s MD, John Dowbiggin said: “We have been very keen to support Stafford-based sports teams and are delighted to see Milford Hall in such winning form.

 

“But it’s not just the development of home-grown talent that is important, we think playing sport is essential not only for physical health but also mental well-being too. And what better way is there to do that than by making history at the home of cricket.

 

Dave Smith, Milford Hall CC Chairman said, “To play at Lord’s has to be the pinnacle of a club cricketer’s career. It was a very special, surreal, moment, not just for the winning team but for everyone who’s tried to reach the final over the years, as well as valued sponsors such as Xcomm. This cup run has brought the club together and created unbelievable community interest.”
