Derbyshire County Cricket Club have signed a five-year partnership with Briggs of Burton to become the official pre-season tour sponsors.

The new partnership secures future pre-season tours which will allow the Derbyshire squad to partake in warm weather training ahead of each new campaign.

Derbyshire Chief Executive Simon Storey said: “Cricket in Derbyshire was a passion for Keith and Briggs of Burton wanted to do their bit to help the local county cricket club in his memory.

“This five-year partnership secures our pre-season tours for the foreseeable future, drugs offering our team the best possible preparation ahead of each new season. 

“The family were so proud to see the hundreds of snazzy socks on display on that first Sunday of the season. It was great to see so many supporters pay their respects in such a positive way.”

Briggs of Burton Director Gareth Cure said: “Keith was every inch a proud Derbyshire man and the whole family are staunch supporters of the club.

“We think he would be proud to see Briggs associated with the club in this way. He would have been right at the front of the queue for a pair of the new socks too.”
