Dewsbury beds and mattress manufacturer The Shire Bed Company has agreed a three year sponsorship deal with Yorkshire County Cricket club.

The tie-up — which runs through 2018 — follows a one-year sponsorship agreed with the Headingley headquartered cricket club last year.

The company said being an official partner gives it access to high profile international players including Johnny Bairstow, Adam Lyth and Tim Bresnan.

Fara Butt, marketing director at The Shire Bed Company said: “As keen supporters of the local community we are very proud to be a partner of Yorkshire CCC. Our passion for Yorkshire and the county’s cricket team makes this an excellent match for us.”
