As proud supporters of the England and Wales Cricket Board, we asked cricket clubs nationwide to register with the NatWest CricketForce scheme to be in with a chance to win a brand new 3ft Auto-Roller. At a value of £9,749, we wanted to give something back to the clubs that have supported us over the past 90 years.
Although the Auto-Roller is now exported world-wide to countries such as the West Indies, Pakistan and Australia, the importance of supporting growth in cricket’s home country is something we are very passionate about. Through Lords and Edgbaston, all the way to the Isle of Jersey, the Auto-Roller has become a symbol of cricket heritage; providing cricket clubs the professional turf finish demanded by the world’s top groundsmen.
As a huge thank you for all of the support (and for keeping our cricket pitches in top condition!) our specially made 3ft Auto-Roller was awarded to Slaughters United Cricket Club in the Cotswolds!
