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.

As part of Cricket Deal Direct’s commitment to support the growth of cricket at all levels in Scotland, Managing Director Ian Anderson met two of our inspiring SM Ambassadors in Edinburgh, Scotland captain Preston Mommsen and Scotland’s Con de Lange, before they joined the squad to fly out to India for the upcoming World T20.

Ian explains, “The number one priority for an SM Ambassador, especially proven international players like Preston and Con, is to focus on winning cricket matches, and we are delighted to provide them with SM bats that meet the quality demanded by players of this calibre.”

CDD is also appointing Club Champions throughout Scotland whose role is to provide advice on how any club or junior player can order from the SM range distributed throughout the UK on an exclusive basis.

A new Facebook page, Cricket Deal Direct Scotland, features news about activities in Scotland on a regular basis, as well as providing the opportunity for cricketers to post their comments.
