Delport backed by Larsen Howie

Leicestershire CCC are pleased to announce that big hitting all-rounder Cameron Delport will be sponsored by Larsen Howie for the 2017 season.

The left-hander made a big impression in 2016 and has started 2017 in fine form, smashing three half-centuries with a strike rate above 100 in the Royal London One-Day Cup. Delport was the club’s third highest run-scorer with 243 at an average of 34.71.

Larsen Howie, who were established in 2015 by Pete Willcocks, are a Leicestershire based general insurance broker who provide specialist insurances and IR35 advice to contractors, freelancers and consultants across the UK, predominantly via their website

Delport said: “It’s great that Pete and the team at Larsen Howie have sponsored me, the club had a good Royal London One-Day Cup campaign and we cannot wait for the NatWest T20 Blast to start.”

Pete, Managing Director of Larsen Howie, said: “We jumped at the opportunity to sponsor Cameron, he’s a vastly talented and entertaining cricketer whose reputation is growing at a considerable rate around the world, especially in the NatWest T20 Blast format. 

“He is one of the few players who has the ability and aura that draw people to stop what they are doing to go and watch him bat, and being associated with that is a perfect fit for us.”

Leicestershire CCC Sales Manager Tracey Branson said: “We’re delighted to welcome Larsen Howie on board with us to sponsor Cameron. We thank Larsen Howie for their support and look forward to working with them during the year.”
