We're absolutely chuffed to bits to announce the
signing of Tim Bresnan, Yorkshire and England all-rounder and Test cricketer, on
a two year sponsorship deal.
Bresnan, an outstanding fast-medium bowler and
tenacious bat, is a fixture in England’s setup having competed over 100 times in
all formats of cricket for his country, including key roles in recent Ashes and
ICC World Twenty20 glory.
The 27-year-old has been involved with the England
side since 2006 when he received both his One Day International and Twenty20
debuts, and three years later Bresnan made his entry into the Test stage against
the West Indies.
Since then the man from Pontefract has been a
regular member of the England squad.
Notable highlights include playing every match in
England’s victorious 2010 ICC World Twenty20 side, being part of the winning
Ashes squad that toured Australia in 2010-2011, and smashing 90 runs along with
Test-best bowling figures of 5/48 against India in 2011.
Bresnan said: “I am very proud and pleased to have
come to an agreement with Woodworm. The brand is one of the biggest names in
international cricket, and their cricket bats and equipment are among the best
around. I am truly excited about our forthcoming partnership.”
Woodworm CEO Simon Millington added: “Tim is an
extremely talented cricketer and we at Woodworm are thrilled to be teaming up
We greatly look forward to working together,
getting his input on further helping develop our products and, of course, are
very excited about seeing Tim and his Woodworm Bat representing England – and
scoring runs - in the fixtures to come.”
Bresnan is currently overseas playing a crucial
part in England’s One Day International series against India. Upon completion of
the Tour, the Yorkshireman will be expected to travel with the Three Lions to
New Zealand for the Test series against the Black Caps.
Following the opening fixtures of the County
Championship, Bresnan will next be seen on home soil for his country in the
return series against New Zealand in May, before England take on Australia in
back-to-back Ashes series.
