Sussex signs up Aerotron as shirt sponsor

Aerotron has been unveiled as the official shirt sponsor for English County Championship cricket club Sussex.

The deal will run for the duration of the 2017 season, starting with the first game of the campaign on April 14.

Aerotron specialises in aviation component support solutions to both the civil and military markets. It also sponsored the Sussex Cricket Indoor School at the First Central County Ground in 2015.

Tony Westley, chairman of Aerotron, said: “The Indoor School involvement was intended to encourage talented youngsters to improve their skills with expert coaching, and now the shirt sponsorship is to encourage those same youngsters to achieve excellence through the application of those skills, in a truly English game.”

Tony Cottey, Sussex’s business relationship manager, added: “We are very proud of our long association with Sussex-based company Aerotron, and it is great news for us that they have decided to expand their sponsorship with us."
