What our sponsors say
Towergate Risk Solutions are proud to be sponsoring the Taunton & District Youth Cricket League for the
15th consecutive year.

Towergate Farm Insurance has many years experience in providing specialist insurance to farmers and
the agricultural industry. We offer a wide range of insurance products and a local based service.
Towergate Risk Solutions Taunton provide the Commercial Insurance arm together with personal lines for
home and car owners.

Towergate Risk Solutions are delighted to still be involved and particularly pleased as the number of team
and club entries continues to rise. There are now over 100 teams entering in the three age group
categories and even more with the under 17’s cup competition. The under 15’s cricket is 11 aside 20
over’s and one division of the under 13’s section is also 11 aside. The remaining under 13 leagues and
under 11 teams play 8 aside “Barrington” cricket and will give all players the opportunity to bat and bowl.
A new under 11’s league has been formed for 2009 and will play 10 aside Barrington rules. The under
13’s cup competition which is the route to County and National Tournaments will be played on an 11 a
side basis as will the cup competition for under 15’s.

The support is phenomenal with so many committed helpers at each of the clubs, not only the
Managers and Coaches but parents and players.

Good luck to all the teams involved and have fun!
