Formulated Polymers Main Club Sponsor

We are pleased that Formulated Polymers continue as our main club sponsor. Formulated Polymers are a local company based a stone’s throw away from the club in the centre of Ramsbottom and we are delighted they have decided to sponsor their local cricket club.

Formulated Polymers was formed in 1988 and was originally based in Bolton before moving to their current site in Ramsbottom in 1997. Neil Howarth is the Managing Director and he will be a familiar face with many at the club particularly from his work on the committee.  There is a strong family connection with the club with Neil’s youngest son, Michael being part of the senior cricket squad. Formulated Polymers are a local business with strong community links supporting local charities and amateur sporting clubs.

We look forward to seeing Neil and his team over the summer for what we hope will be enjoyable and successful season.

Grace Overseas Junior Foundation and Women & Girls Section Sponsor

We are also delighted that Grace Overseas will continue as the sponsor of the Junior Foundation and the Women & Girls Cricket section. Grace Overseas (GO) has a rich history in the logistics sector, one that places them in the enviable position as a reputable, respected and highly sought-after freight company.  GO was established in 1985 by Peter and Veronica Cooney, both of whom brought to the business over 40 years of experience in the freight industry. Named after Peter’s mother, Grace Overseas benefited from the strong network of contacts that Peter and Veronica had built in the Manchester area, and with family members taking up prominent positions at the Salford and Manchester docks, the business thrived.  To this day GO remains a family run business, with Peter and Veronica’s daughter, Sarah Taylor taking over as Managing Director. With countless members of the GO team having been with us since incorporation we can state with confidence that we know and understand the industry inside out. There is also a direct link with former 1st team captain Brian Taylor married to Sarah Taylor. The family are familiar faces at the club with their son Harry part of our junior section and daughter Grace taking her coaching badges.

Apart from becoming a member or taking part in our prize draws there are several other ways you can help to contribute:



We offer several match day hospitality packages hosted both in the main clubhouse and our historic Victorian pavilion.



For a small fee you can sponsor the match ball for any game by any team. For this you get a tannoy announcement on the day and mentions on our website and social media.



Advertise your wears or projects with a bespoke advertising board. These can be placed on the river bank fence, old mill wall or pretty much anywhere else you think it will work (apart from the sacred pavilion of course)



Much like the Forth Road Bridge our benches and fence panels are in constant need of care and attention. You will see that plenty of these have a name plate attached to them. There are many more orphans that don’t however.
