Andy Dawson, The Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Commercial Director said: “We are absolutely delighted and very proud that we will be wearing the NIC brand on the front of the County Championship shirts for the next three years.
“John Spencer and his team deserve immense praise on how they have gone about creating such a great culture within a business and put the foundations in place for it to grow so big, so quickly.
“John and his family are huge supporters of Yorkshire County Cricket Club and it’s always a delight to watch a few overs of cricket with them. I will never forget when we showed John the County Championship trophy when we won it in 2014 for the first time in thirteen years. He was overwhelmed with joy and excitement, therefore seems fitting that his company name is now on the shirt that will be competing to win that trophy once again.”
John Spencer, Group Chairman at NIC Services Group LTD said: “We are delighted with the partnership and we are proud to sponsor this great club.
“On a personal level I have supported the club since I was a young boy. My family and I have so many great memories and friends through our involvement with Yorkshire County Cricket Club, and the club has a very special place in our hearts.”
