Breakwater IT joined the panel of Swardeston sponsors in 2017 as they came on board to sponsor our annual cricket dinner.

Breakwater’s Managing Director, John Gostling said: “Swardeston is one of the leading cricket clubs in East Anglia, with a history that stretches back over 150 years and a reputation for actively promoting the sport amongst younger generations.Swardeston_vertical

“We are thrilled to be sponsoring the club’s consistently popular annual dinner.”

2017 was the 31st staging of the cricket dinner and Swardeston welcomed a big name in English cricket as guest speaker, former England captain Michael Vaughan OBE.

Vaughan captained England in 51 tests between 2003 and 2008, winning 26 (a national record) and losing 11; England won all 7 home tests of the 2004 summer under Vaughan, and the pinnacle of his captaincy career came with a 2-1 victory in the 2005 Ashes, England’s first Ashes victory since 1986/87.

John added: “Breakwater hugely enjoyed sponsoring the dinner and being able to support one of East Anglia’s leading cricket clubs and all the great work it does to endorse the sport throughout the region.

“Events that bring together business with promoting something as constructive assport are destined to be successful and the Swardeston cricket dinner supports this ethos year after year.

Dinner organiser David Thomas said: “We were delighted to have secured Michael for this year’s dinner and we very much welcomed Breakwater IT as our new main dinner sponsor.”
