A FIRM has secured a deal to support a top North-East professional cricket team.

Horizonworks is working with reigning county champions Durham County Cricket Club (DCC) on advertising, brochures and promotional material.

The partnership has already seen Horizonworks carry out players photo shoots and designs for the Chester-le-Street team's Natwest T20 Blast campaign and England's one-day international against Sri Lanka, which takes place at the ground this month.

Sarah Baggott, DCC senior marketing manager, said: “Horizonworks have a dynamic and innovative approach to creative and design work.

“The company has a strong brand and design portfolio and we’re excited at working together.”

Samantha Davidson, managing director of Newcastle-based Horizonworks, added: “We’re thrilled to be working with one of the regions true sporting success stories and are looking forward to supporting the club in promoting match day and off-field activities.”

Ms Davidson added the cricket club is one of a number of companies it is working alongside.

It also has agreements in place with North Tyneside-based security panel maker Securiclad and Middlesbrough's independent shipping and freight firm Johnson Partners.
