It’s worth mentioning that this couldn’t have been achieved without the tireless efforts and dedication of our committee and Chairman. We continue to build year on year and have real aspirations of becoming a top-flight club” said DCC Secretary Andrew Hailiday.

Dorking Cricket Club regularly puts out four league sides on a Saturday as well as two on a Sunday and a successful Academy team.

“The new sponsorship deal we have with Stonegate Homes feelsvery much like a true partnership. Stonegate Homes share our values and will be supporting us with our aspirations of becoming a top flight cricket club at the very heart of the local community. Over the course of the next few seasons, we will be investing in our facilitiessubstantially. This will allow us to ensure we provide the local community with a fully inclusive safe space for people from all walks of life to enjoy the game of cricket.” said DCC Sponsorship and Development Officer Henry Glynn.

Jerry Hinds, owner of Stonegate Homes, said ‘’we have been talking to the club for a while and are pleased we can finally announce another really exciting local partnership for us. It is great to be able to strategically work with another ambitious local community club who seek to reach for the top whilst putting in places all the building blocks for their long term future. We absolutely love being involved with clubs such as Dorking Cricket Club and note that both Dorking Wanderers Football Club and Sutton and Epsom Rugby Club won their respective leagues this season, so it would be fitting for the lads to follow suit!’



DORKING WANDERERS FOOTBALL CLUB

Stonegate Homes work with Dorking Wanderers teams at all levels, promoting community engagement, local sporting activity and boosting the benefits of Dorking’s new football stadium for the whole of the town. The state-of-the-art Meadowbank stadium opened for the current 2018/19 season and provides a home ground for all Dorking Wanderers’ teams, including the local Development Squad, Ladies, Under 18s and Veterans, as well as hosting training for more than a thousand boys and girls playing in grassroots youth clubs. The clubhouse will be available for use seven days a week and the superb Healthy Kitchen is run as a not for profit to help re-invest proceeds in to the club.

The name of Stonegate Homes is very visible at the ground with the eponymous stand being filled every match day and the players entering the pitch through the branded tunnel. As well as that, the name appears on the front of shirts on a majority of Dorking Wanderers’ community-based teams from ages 4 through to senior level and our arrangement includes Stonegate sponsoring the training kit for all teams and the prestigious first team Player of the Month and Man of the Match awards.

“As a locally based company we have been aware of the incredible progress Dorking Wanderers has been making up the league pyramid, putting the town on the map. So when we knew there was an opportunity to support the club on the next part of its journey, moving into Meadowbank, we really wanted to be involved,” explains Stonegate Homes’ founder Jeremy Hinds.

“We absolutely love the new stadium and the chance to be involved with something at the heart of the community is very important to us.” Jeremy Hinds adds, “When we met with the volunteers who run Dorking Wanderers, it was immediately clear how much the club meant to them and we hope their passion is shared by more and more Dorking residents as the club continue to grow both on and off the pitch. We’re incredibly enthusiastic about the hundreds of players who represent their local club at all levels – as well as the many hundreds more who we hope will make use of the new stadium

“Dorking Wanderers, Stonegate Homes and Meadowbank are a natural fit,” says the club’s Chairman, Marc White. “More than just a football club, as tenants at the new stadium we want to make this public facility work for the entire community, revitalising this part of the town. Stonegate have been doing that throughout the South East – they’re the experts.


Sutton and Epsom RFC – Building for the future

Sutton & Epsom Rugby Football Club are proud to announce that Stonegate Homes have signed a new three-year sponsorship agreement.

S&ERFC offers both its members and the wider community the opportunity to be part of something very special. The first Sutton club was formed in 1871, the birth year of the RFU itself, while the present club started life in the autumn of 1880 as an off-shoot of the Sutton Bicycle Club – hence the iconic penny-farthing logo which still adorns the club’s black and white hooped strip.

The club of today is one of the largest in the country, capable of putting up to 40 sides in the field, ranging from tender-aged minis, through a thriving junior and colts section, a development XV, five senior men’s sides, including the flagship 1st XV currently competing in the National League, London & SE Premier division, and not to mention a flourishing ladies section which also runs four girls youth sides. The club also runs a large community programme which includes our Satellite Schools Programme, Summer Camp, Surrey Youth Games, Coaching Clinics and Rugby Taster Sessions.

This has not been achieved by chance. The club today is supported by over 3,000 members – 1,200 of them past and present players as well as 1,800 social members. Indeed, the club’s social scene is second to none, with themed festivities and parties galore and ending with the prestigious Black & White Ball. But more importantly, as playing costs, travel expenses and general overheads increase, the club has to rely more and more in forging relationships with local businesses.

Jerry Hinds, Stonegate Homes co-founder, commented, “As a local property development business based in Dorking and operating around Surrey we are particularly looking forward to supporting the varied programme of community projects the club runs. It’s great to help give something back and get kids involved in a great sport like rugby. The team at Stonegate and I are honoured to support this local club which has such a long and distinguished history. I look forward to watching some exciting rugby over the season and we wish the club all the very best.

And now, backed by a dedicated coaching and playing staff, an army of volunteers and our highly valued sponsors, Sutton & Epsom are competing in the National League. There is not a hint of complacency and the club is well aware of the great challenges ahead. But challenges are meat and drink to Sutton and the atmosphere at Rugby Lane today is one of great optimism.

Chairman of Sponsorship & Marketing at S&E, Bob Haime, commented, “We are so pleased that Stonegate have come on board to partner with us – they’re a great bunch and really into their rugby. But more importantly it establishes yet another bond with a local business and helps us to plan and build for the future – and cement our place in the National League.


INJURED JOCKEY FUND FLOODLIT FOOTBALL MATCH

Stonegate Homes were delighted to be the headline sponsors of the second edition of the Injured Jockey Fund Floodlit Football Match which took place at Cheltenham Town Football Club after the days racing at Cheltenham Racecourse on Wednesday 18th April. A hotly contested match saw an AP McCoy XI take on a Cheltenham Town Legends XI which resulted in a highly entertaining 2-2 draw. There was also a fun half time penalty shoot-out which saw a raft of well-known trainers put under the intense pressure of scoring a penalty under pressure!

Most importantly, the whole event smashed last year’s fundraising total of £25,000 to raise a whopping £45,000 which will go directly to supporting the fantastic work carried out by the Injured Jockey Fund. The next edition of this superb event will be held at Cheltenham again next year on Wednesday 17th April.
