Woodland Group Partnership Continues into 2019


With the start of the season just days away, it will soon be time again to welcome Essex fans through the gates of the The Cloudfm County Ground when Essex Eagles host Middlesex on Friday 19 April.

This match marks the beginning of four home matches in the Royal London One-Day Cup for the Eagles; a campaign which will again be proudly supported by Woodland Group, one of the largest independent logistics companies with headquarters in Chelmsford, Essex.

Woodland Group are long-term partners of Essex Cricket and are proud to continue their sponsorship of the Essex Eagles’ Royal London One-Day Cup shirt.

Having reached the Play-Off stage of the competition in 2018, the Eagles are looking to reach a Lord’s final with 2017 One-Day Cup leading run-scorer, Sir Alastair Cook, as well overseas player, Peter Siddle, returning to the ranks.
