Shikara Sponsors North East Cricket

We’re proud to offer financial backing to one of North Tyneside’s most famous cricket clubs via a new shirt sponsorship deal for Backworth Percy Welfare Cricket Club!

Celebrating its 140th anniversary, the club is looking to expand its membership and strengthen its ties with the local community in 2014.

“Good cricket and great curries go hand in hand at Backworth and this seemed like the perfect partnership,” said second team captain Andrew Charlton.

“I’ve been a regular at Shikara for some time now and partners Azad and Shohid are big cricket fans.

“They’ve always taken an interest in cricket and jumped at the opportunity to make a difference at Backworth. Without the support of local businesses cricket clubs like Backworth find it very difficult to develop young talent for the future.”
