The Maryborough District Cricket Association has gained a new naming rights sponsor for the first time in two seasons.

Employment agency WDEA Works has formed a partnership with the league due to connections to local cricket within its Maryborough office.

“WDEA Works is an excellent fit for the MDCA with the three men based in the Maryborough office all having links to the three Maryborough based cricket clubs,” MDCA treasurer Terry Sharp said.

“In recent economic times we have found it difficult to source major sponsors and we have gone through the last two MDCA seasons without a major sponsor.

“This arrangement with WDEA Works comes as a major boost to our competition and cricket in the area.”

WDEA Works said they are looking forward to this being the start of a long relationship of supporting the local community.

The MDCA currently fields two junior teams and three senior teams locally and a 13s, 15s, 17s and senior team in the Central Highlands zone competition.

Last season the MDCA also introduced a Wednesday night girls’ competition.
