They were presented with the now characteristic maroon club rain jackets by club chairman Rory Fergusson. The firm which is based at Newbie and specialises in industrial control systems is now in its fourth year of sponsorship of the club which coincides with the clubs’ involvement in the Scottish National Leagues.

Elliot Graham of APD said “We are keen to play our part in supporting local clubs and organisations and in particular an energetic community club like Dumfries Cricket Club”.

Rory Fergusson, on behalf of the club said “We are very grateful for the support provided by APD and happy that APD Dumfries has become a name that trips off the tongue locally and in Scottish cricketing circles. Such support is vital for local sports clubs to survive these days with the continued and varied costs now associated with running a club. However we do hope that these rain jackets are not required until the end of the season.”
