Cricket lover Jane Jenkins, marketing director of Timothy Taylor's, said: “We are proud to be the new sponsor of the Craven & District Cricket League.

“Many of the grounds are in villages or towns where we have Timothy Taylor's pubs or where our award-winning beers grace the bar of sport venues and local pubs.

“Cricket is such a community sport, with dedicated players and volunteers. We are keen to support the league network as a family-owned Keighley-based business who value the support the local community gives us.''
