Lancashire-based brewer Daniel Thwaites is giving regulars and cricket fans a final opportunity to win an exclusive coaching session with Lancashire County Cricket Club’s star players.
Thwaites, who are official sponsors of Lancashire CCC with their Wainwright beer, is offering one lucky cricket team the chance to receive a personal coaching session with the players and head coach Peter Moores, at Old Trafford.
The competition closes at midnight on Sunday 14th August and all people have to do is tell Thwaites why their team deserves to win it with all entrants being judged by ex-England & Lancashire wicket keeper Warren Hegg.
The lucky winners will be treated like star players, starting with a behind-the-scenes tour of Old Trafford before using the official dressing rooms to don their whites. Whether it is how to bowl the perfect Yorker or advice on hitting a textbook cover drive, the Lancashire players and coaches will put the team through their paces.
After a hard workout in the nets, the team will be rewarded with some well-deserved pints of Thwaites Wainwright in a private bar overlooking the Old Trafford pitch.
The competition, which is open to adults only, is being promoted across the entire Thwaites customer base via bespoke pub promotional kits. Additionally the campaign has been amplified across Thwaites existing social media channels - Facebook, Twitter and Web. Budding cricketers can still enter in pub via the promotional flyer, by email or via either the Thwaites Brewery Facebook page or www.thwaites.co.uk.
Lee Williams, marketing manager of Thwaites said: "This is a final call out to all cricket teams at the grass roots level and an invitation to simply tell us why they need this superb coaching prize. Whether your team is pushing for the league title or battling at the foot of the table, it really doesn’t matter. The coaching they will receive will hopefully help a team end the season on a real high."
