Cricket Deal Direct (CDD) and Cricket Scotland’s commitment to the women’s game continues with a specially negotiated package between the two organisations to bring quality cricket gear within the reach of cricketers at all levels.

Cricket Scotland has agreed to work with CDD which is a specialist importer of cricket equipment designed by women for women. As CDD Managing Director, Ian Anderson explains, “By cutting out the middleman, CDD is able to pass on the savings and supply top quality SM brand bats, gloves and pads at affordable prices, along with a full range or equipment for juniors and men, as well as coaching and ground equipment.

CDD shares Cricket Scotland’s passion for women’s cricket, and is delighted to be providing match balls for the women’s National League and Scottish Cup competitions as well as supporting the indoor tournaments.”

To take full advantage of the pricing package agreed between Cricket Scotland and CDD, all female cricketers should quote ‘Wildcats’ on any orders placed.

Kari Carswell of Cricket Scotland is excited about working with CDD and said “The SM equipment in particular is great and it’s exciting that CDD has a women’s range. There is nothing worse than having to use oversized gloves or pads! I’m pleased that CDD can be used as a one stop shop for not only our female cricketers and clubs but everyone. They have a great range of playing and coaching equipment, medals, trophies – you name it and they’ve probably got it”.

CDD has also this week announced an exclusive agreement with Australian based Albion Sports to distribute Albion teamwear throughout the UK, including clothing designed for women by women.

Scotland Women’s captain Abbi Aitken already uses SM equipment supplied by CDD and, along with men’s captain, Preston Mommsen, and internationlist Con de Lange, are SM Ambassadors.

Albion teamwear launch offer

If you’re thinking about updating your club teamwear, here’s a great reason to talk to Cricket Deal Direct.

We’ve just agreed an exclusive distributor contract with Albion Sports in Australia to supply their superb quality teamwear to UK clubs (on a bulk order basis) including men’s, women’s and junior ranges. That’s right, the range includes teamwear designed specifically for women.

Details are on the website and we have a great launch offer for you to think about if you’re looking to update your club teamwear.

First and foremost, it’s important to point out that we will not be taking orders direct through the web site. Why? There are so many variables regarding design, style, colour, size and quantities, that each order will need to be discussed in detail with each club. We know that every club is different and want to make sure that you get exactly what you want.

The step by step process is as follows -

We suggest that you go through each of these steps to work out what you need -

Use the web site as a starting point, from which you can see that there are lots of colour and design options. It will probably prove helpful for the club committee and members to discuss the style, design and colour of garments needed at an early stage.

You or any other club contact can arrange a phone consultation initially with Ian Anderson at CDD ( 01778 345618 or email

This will normally be followed by a club visit to look at the range and for you to see samples of this top quality clothing range.

Sizing for both Adults and Juniors will usually be discussed together with the club – quite often when looking at samples.

Club logos and sponsor logos can be discussed – these are produced and applied on the clothing by CDD at their own UK in-house facilities.

Ian will clarify the process with lead times explained to fit in with the Club calendar

Eventually customers can buy from web site, but at this stage it is more of a shop window.

Launch offer

This is where it gets really exciting! There is a great launch offer on orders received by 30th April 2016 – for a minimum order of £2,000 worth of Albion teamwear, the club will receive £500 worth of junior kit free of charge (£625 worth of junior kit on orders over£2,500 and £750 worth of junior kit on £3,000+ orders)

How can we afford to do this?

By importing direct, we are cutting out the middleman and able to pass those savings on to the customer as well as launch Albion Teamwear with this great offer.

The range includes fully-customisable cricket wear which includes sublimated shirts, trousers and training gear all available in club colours or design with sizes for men, women and juniors, all representing the quality you would expect from the Albion brand.”
