Mark Bowen said: “We are already big supporters of the club and are very happy to tie up the sponsorship deal. I am a Worcester boy and I have followed the club for years and have got a lot of friends there.
“I have been a fan there all the way back to the heady heights of Ian Botham. Like most people, I got into cricket as a result of the ‘show’ that was on back then. “Historically I’ve done a bit of sponsorship in other fields, particularly football, but chose to switch the allegiance this year and focus a bit more on cricket. “Sponsoring the shirt collar is slightly quirky and it works and most pictures you will see of a cricketer have generally got the collar involved. “It is not an opportunity you get in many sports and that profile factor is a big factor in it as well as it being another way to support the club. Hopefully it will work for me and the club. “I’ve been doing bits of sponsorship with the club over a number of years, get on very well with Jon Graham (General Manager) and when he said this opportunity was there, I thought it was quite an exciting opportunity. “Hopefully the partnership will carry on for a while. I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t.” Jon Graham said: “We are delighted that MB Insolvency are our official shirt collar sponsors for this season. “Mark Bowen, who owns MB Insolvency, is a massive supporter of the club and has got a fantastic, vibrant business. The relationship between Worcestershire CCC and MB Insolvency started off a couple of years ago with Mark taking a couple of advertising boards and a New Road corporate box for T20 and tourist fixtures. When the opportunity came up to sponsor the shirt collar across all formats, it was the natural progression for the partnership as it has been both enjoyable and successful for both of our businesses over the last couple of years. Mark was keen to develop the relationship and now has the high profile collar position which is a prime location for all the shots in the press and on TV where the brand will get national exposure. “I’d like to think the relationship will pay dividends as we go into the season.”
