Forbes pledges support to Penwortham

Forbes Solicitors has reaffirmed its support to Penwortham Cricket Club by signing up as Club sponsors for a further three years.

Forbes has sponsored the club, which competes in the Palace Shield Competition, since 2008. The club, founded in 1880, provides training and facilities for local cricketers of all ages and is run entirely on a voluntary basis.

Winston Hood, managing partner of Forbes Preston office, said: “Forbes is pleased to continue to support Penwortham Cricket Club, it has a great ethos and sporting manner which ties in perfectly with the firm’s core values.” Penwortham Cricket Club Chairman Eddie Sidgreaves said: “Since Forbes started sponsoring the club we have been successful on the field through our 1st XI winning the league and cup double and have undoubtedly developed in off field activities. We are proud of our association with Forbes Solicitors and look forward to building on this over the next three years.”
