CRICKET whites across Burton are set to get even whiter as AEG prepares to be bowled over by entries to its 2013 Grassroots cricket campaign.

Teams are being encouraged to apply to be one of 40 grassroots cricket teams across the country to receive an ultimate kit and laundry package that includes 11 bespoke cricket kits – designed by the winning teams – as well as a top of the range AEG washing machine.

The campaign is now in its second year and has already provided grassroots clubs and schools with nearly 2000 full team kits.

Former England cricket star Darren Gough said: “We need to give youth teams all the backing and support possible – they’re our future stars.

“It’s so important that AEG is continuing to support grassroots cricket this year.

“The prizes on offer are money-can’t buy opportunities and I urge every team in Burton-on-Trent to apply.”

Graham Bremer, AEG head of marketing, added: “This year the prizes are bigger and better. The star prize takes into consideration not only the team, and giving them the chance to be coached by their England cricket heroes, but it also gives something back to the devoted mums and dads who give up their time.”

The grassroots cricket competition is open to adult, junior and school cricket teams.
