Essex Cricket Extend Partnership With Wilkin & Sons


Essex Cricket are delighted to announce that Wilkin & Sons have extended their partnership with the Club and will carry on sponsoring ‘The Tiptree Stand’ for the next three years.

Darrell Fox, Commercial Manager at Essex Cricket, is pleased that Wilkin & Sons have prolonged their partnership and said: “I’m immensely proud that Essex Cricket are working with one of the most famous brands in Essex with worldwide recognition. Tiptree have been a partner of the Club for well over 15 years and I’m looking forward to extending this long and happy relationship.

“Tiptree and Essex Cricket share the same values of being proud of their local heritage and the partnership is a great fit for both brands, with the Tiptree products being used across The Cloudfm County Ground. I would challenge any restaurant or venue to offer a better homemade scone with jam than what Tiptree provide at Essex Cricket.”

Scott Goodfellow, Managing Director at Wilkin & Sons, said: “We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of this talented local team. We take great pride in our long-term partnership with Essex Cricket and we look forward to the next three years of high-quality cricket and fine hospitality at the Club”

About Wilkin & Sons:

The Wilkin family have been farming at Tiptree, Essex, since 1757, and making quality preserves since 1885. They grow a wide range of traditional English fruits and use them to make conserves, condiments, and other treats in their nut-free factory by the farm. Tiptree products are made to cherished recipes and are free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. Fruit is inspected and prepared by hand then cooked in small batches using traditional, copper-bottomed pans. They supply an extensive range of conserves, marmalades, honeys, sauces, condiments, fresh fruit, teas, cakes, biscuits, fruit juices, gift packs, fruit gin liqueurs, Christmas puddings, and even natural wax candles. They received their first Royal Warrant from George V in 1911, and remain Royal Warrant holders as purveyors of Tiptree Products to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Every member of staff is part of their Employee Benefit Trust, giving each a keen interest in the future of the business.
