I am very proud and pleased to have come to an agreement with Woodworm - their cricket bats and equipment are among the best around
Worcestershire, UK (PRWEB UK) 7 January 2013
Woodworm are delighted to announce the signing of Tim Bresnan on a two-year sponsorship deal.
Bresnan, an outstanding fast-medium bowler and tenacious bat, is a fixture in England’s setup having competed over 100 times in all formats of cricket for his country, including key roles in recent Ashes and ICC World Twenty20 glory.
The 27-year-old has been involved with the England side since 2006 when he received both his One Day International and Twenty20 debuts, and three years later Bresnan made his entry into the Test stage against the West Indies.
Since then the man from Pontefract has been a regular member of the England squad.
Notable highlights include playing every match in England’s victorious 2010 ICC World Twenty20 side, being part of the winning Ashes squad that toured Australia in 2010-2011, and smashing 90 runs along with Test-best bowling figures of 5/48 against India in 2011.
Bresnan said: “I am very proud and pleased to have come to an agreement with Woodworm. The brand is one of the biggest names in international cricket, and their cricket bats and equipment are among the best around. I am truly excited about our forthcoming partnership.”
Woodworm CEO Simon Millington added: “Tim is an extremely talented cricketer and we at Woodworm are thrilled to be teaming up with him. We greatly look forward to working together, getting his input on further helping develop our products and, of course, are very excited about seeing Tim and his Woodworm Bat representing England – and scoring runs - in the fixtures to come.”
Bresnan is currently overseas playing a crucial part in England’s One Day International series against India. Upon completion of the Tour, the Yorkshireman will be expected to travel with the Three Lions to New Zealand for the Test series against the Black Caps.
Following the opening fixtures of the County Championship, Bresnan will next be seen on home soil for his country in the return series against New Zealand in May, before England take on Australia in back-to-back Ashes series.
