14 was a lucky number for Wetherby Cricket Club after they were drawn as a winner of a cricket coaching mat courtesy of total-play.
As part of the relaunch of total-play's new online store thecricketgroundshop.co.uk, a Twitter prize draw saw Wetherby one of several clubs into the hat.
Yorkshire and England Lions opening batsman Alex Lees then picked number 14 - the same number he wears for Yorkshire - when asked to select a random number, the same number that Wetherby had been allocated.
The Cricket Coaching Mat has been described in glowing terms by those who use it as "the best thing they have ever bought for their juniors" (Idle CC, South Shore CC) and "the best aid I have used to coach batting" (Kevin Brown, Gotham CC).
Former Yorkshire cricketer Anthony Burton, now Product Development Manager at total-play, says:
"It’s been great working with Coaching Cricket Mats Ltd to run our re-launch twitter competition and we’d like to thank David Cooper and his team for supplying such a fantastic prize.
"All the products we stock are hand-picked for their quality and performance by cricketers who really understand the game, and the coaching mat is a great example of this. We’d like to congratulate Wetherby CC on their win and wish them well for the new season."
Wetherby CC Chairman, Arthur Probert, explains what the prize means for the club:
"We’re delighted to have won the cricket coaching mat, and I know the coaches are especially looking forward to using it over the next few years.
"I’d like to take this opportunity to thank total-play Ltd and Cricket Coaching Mats Ltd for organising the competition and supplying the prize and, of course, to Alex whose number certainly proved lucky for us!"
