Barcan+Kirby teams up with Gloucestershire Cricket to mark club reaching 150 not out

February 7, 2020

Gloucestershire Cricket has appointed Bristol-based law firm Barcan+Kirby as its official sponsor to help it celebrate the club’s 150th anniversary this year.

The club, which following a successful 2019 has brought Division One County Championship cricket back to the Bristol County Ground for this season, is aiming to mark its century and a half in style with a series of events for members and supporters.

Barcan+Kirby, which has six high street branches across Bristol and South Gloucestershire, will be at the front and centre of the celebrations as the club’s official 150 Not Out sponsor.

Gloucestershire Cricket commercial director Neil Priscott said: “2020 will be an incredibly special year and we are delighted that Barcan+Kirby have come on board as our 150th anniversary partner.

“With offices both local to the County Ground and throughout Bristol and South Gloucestershire, the firm is a fitting partner to help us celebrate the club’s proud history.

“Barcan+Kirby has a proud record of working with and in the Gloucestershire community, so we look forward to putting on a series of memorable events together throughout the year.”

Barcan+Kirby managing partner Bill Willcocks added: “We are thrilled to be the sponsor of Gloucestershire Cricket’s 150th Anniversary year.

“When we first spoke to the club it became obvious that our organisations had much in common, one of our offices is within throwing distance of the ground and we were hugely impressed by the work that the club is doing within our local community.”

To get the 150th anniversary celebrations underway, Gloucestershire will host a quiz at the County Ground on March 4 at 7pm when teams will be challenged on their sports knowledge. Entry is £30 per team.

On March 30 members and supporters will get the opportunity to see the club’s special anniversary playing kits worn for the very first time when the playing and coaching staff gather for an evening of questions and answers.
