“Ours is a private family organisation with a very public
ambition: to unlock growth by generating wealth with a purpose.
That means building communities with an entrepreneurial mindset
and creating opportunities for young people to reach their
potential. The Academy and Women and Girls teams have got a
great record in helping talented cricketers develop into County
and International players.
“The Aldridge Cricket Academy is working
closely with both organisations to support players who want to
develop their game and gain academic qualifications at the same
time. I am delighted that Aldridge can further that partnership
through this sponsorship.”

time I was a member of the Sussex Academy as well.
“Both of these programmes were hugely important
to my journey to international success so it is vital they
continue to thrive and grow via support from Aldridge. I have
seen first-hand the exciting opportunities for young talented
sports people to attend Aldridge Academies to develop both
academically and in their chosen sport in excellent facilities
