Suburbs New Lynn Cricket Club is absolutely delighted to join in partnership with our new Junior Club sponsor Sharpe Marketing.  As you can see from their release below there is a lot of passion within Sharpe Marketing for community sport and all at the club are excited to be working with them to the benefit of our Junior Players.  Without support from companies such as Sharpe Marketing, it would not be possible to run the clubs, teams, and competitions as successfully as we do.  So, thank you to the Luff family and all at Sharpe Marketing!

Sharpe Marketing supports Grass Roots Cricket

It’s two years since Sharpe Marketing was created and, on this anniversary, we are thrilled to announce, that we have partnered with Suburbs New Lynn Cricket Club as their naming rights partner for the Junior Club.

Suburbs New Lynn Cricket Club is a strong all-round club.  It was established in 1937, and home to 1000 members, including 400 junior members as well as 6 female cricket teams. It was the NZ Cricket Club of the Year in 2021 and is the proud home club to Martin Guptill, Ajaz Patel, Jimmy Neesham, and Jeet Raval, to name a few.

Sport is in the Luff blood. Our founder, Meg Luff, represented New Zealand at the 1990 Commonwealth Games for swimming and is a founding member of Women in Sport Aotearoa. Meg’s mum, Jenni, represented Whanganui and Wellington in cricket in her earlier years, and Meg’s great grandfather, Harold Rainbow Sharpe, was a very talented rower, representing Whanganui Union, and would have gone on to compete at the Empire Games if it wasn’t for WWII.

As the sport has given Meg so much, she has always wanted to ‘give back’ where she can. Now, with her son, Fred, playing for the club as a proud member of the Michael Barry Junior team, under coach Mark and manager Mike, it seems like the ideal time and the ideal opportunity.  She is really looking forward to supporting the Junior Club.

Sharpe Marketing is a virtual, full-service marketing agency dedicated to helping accountants and lawyers stay connected to their clients through communication, social media, and partnerships. We work with clients all around the country who need marketing support so that they can focus on doing what they do best, servicing and advising their clients. Meg and Sharpe Marketing wish all our players a very, very successful 2022/23 season!
