Swanage cricket club has been bowled over by new sponsorship from law firm Ellis Jones.
The club - which has 150 members - has bought a mobile practice net for its thriving adult and youth teams to fine tune their skills.


Tim Ives, Swanage Cricket Club Youth Co-Ordinator, said: "We're extremely grateful for Ellis Jones' support for the mobile net, which has enhanced our training facilities quite considerably.


"Developing an excellent partnership with such a large and established firm of solicitors has played a great part in our success both on and off the pitch."
Swanage Cricket Club has three adult teams, and more than 100 youth players aged eight to 15 in seven teams.


Its first XI have just finished runners-up in Dorset Division One. The mobile net, which can be wheeled on to the pitch for players to practice on the wicket, will be used as the teams prepare for next season.


Ellis Jones already sponsors the club's youth section, including playing tops and hoodies.


Nigel Smith, Managing Partner at Ellis Jones, said: "We're always very keen on community involvement.
"Our Swanage office has strong links with the cricket club and I hope the new net will propel the teams on to even greater achievements."

Ellis Jones is a regional law firm with more than 160 staff, including 15 partners.

It has six offices across the south coast in Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs (Poole), Christchurch, Ringwood, Swanage and Wimborne - as well as London - and offers a wide range of services to individuals and businesses.
