Whitley Stimpson, who are one of the largest independent accountancy and business advisors in the area, was pleased to attend the Banbury Cricket Club end of season awards ceremony at The Pavilion in Bodicote.

As lead sponsors of the youth section for over ten years, Whitley Stimpson were delighted when Owen Kyffin was asked to present the youth category awards on behalf of the company.

Director, Owen said: “I was absolutely thrilled to see such an enormous and enthusiastic attendance at the awards evening by both young players and their parents.

“Running six senior sides, including a successful women’s team, youth cricket is essential to the future success of the club. There are many opportunities to play up and get a taste of senior cricket.

“Banbury’s first team captain and a large number of the first team squad came up through youth cricket and the club see home grown talent as an integral part of its future success – Whitley Stimpson are very proud to play a part in this.”

Several players picked up awards in recognition of their talents. Four players from Banbury also went on to collect awards the following evening at the Oxfordshire Cricket Board awards dinner.

Banbury CC are the leading cricket club in Oxfordshire and won the inaugural Home Counties Premier League in 2000.
