Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield sponsors Greenmount Cricket Club

7th May 2024

We are proud to announce another sponsor, this time between our Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield site and Greenmount Cricket Club.

The earliest mention of a cricket team in Greenmount was in a Bury Times article in 1867, which described a match having taken place between ‘Green Mount and Tottington’. Today the club has three senior teams and three junior teams (under 11s, 13s and 15s) who play in the JWLees Lancashire League. A fourth senior team plays friendlies, and an under 9s junior team also plays in the Greater Manchester Cricket League.

As one of the club’s main sponsors, our LSH Auto logo and and Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield, will be proudly displayed on shirts across all teams.

Greenmount CC Chairman Andrew Skinner commented: “I am chuffed to bits for our club to partner with such a high-quality brand like Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield, and see this as another positive step forward in lifting the profile of the club in the local community. Already, as a result of their support, we have upgraded our playing kits for the season ahead, including an exciting new T20 design. We have also been able to offer free playing shirts to all our junior members. I’m looking forward to developing the partnership in the coming season and enjoying some great cricket together!”

Our partnership comes at a time when Greenmount Cricket Club is investing in upgrades to all aspects of the club facilities, having recently installed brand-new practice nets and two hybrid pitches. The club has also continued to improve the internal lounges which now include a refurbished function room, home to the renowned Harrison’s at Greenmount bistro.

South African professional Jacques Snyman said:“Greenmount CC is an amazing club and is the nerve centre of the local community. I am so excited to be playing for them again this season. It’s even better to know that we have a quality brand partner in Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield. I think it’s a great fit for the local area and I feel it is a privilege to be involved with both organisations.”

Mark Taylor, Dealer Principal of Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield, said:“At LSH Auto, we’re committed to giving back to the communities that support us. That’s one of our core principles. With our local Mercedes-Benz dealership based in Whitefield, we thought this was a great opportunity to provide the club and the local community with our support.”

As a business, we are extremely passionate about supporting local community-based associations that reinvest to improve and grow, and would like to thank the team, board, and Greenmount's one and only Jacques Snyman for welcoming Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield to the club!
