All Out Cricket special offer – find out how to get free Junior Kit worth £89.95

By , March 28, 2016 9:13 am

The new season is getting closer every day, and together with our friends at All Out Cricket, we have teamed up to make you a great offer -

We unloaded a container from India before Easter of the very latest SM bats and kit, which you can now check out on our website but we haven’t got enough space in our warehouse for all this new stock, which is why we’re making you an offer that will win you lots of brownie points with the kids in your family or club.

Have you been checking your cricket gear for the new season? While you’re at it, you can decide what you need to replace for the new season (a bat? Gloves? Pads? Kit bag?) and for every £250 you spend with us, you’ll get a Junior SM Cricket Set (worth £89.95) completely free – that’s everything shown in the picture.

This offer is only available until Friday 29th April 2016 or while stocks last, but think of it this way – you’ll be in great shape for the new season, and the junior cricketer in your family will think you’re a Spring Star!

Imagine updating your club teamwear and getting loads of free kit for juniors too… it’s now a reality

Albion teamwear launch offer

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.

How to make your hobby pay for itself

By , February 6, 2016 12:08 pm

If you’re passionate about cricket, and want to play as much as possible, there may be times when you look at the overall cost of your hobby and wish there was a way of making some extra money to cover it. Now there is.

All you need is enthusiasm for cricket and the ability to talk to other members in your club, and you can become a Club Champion for Cricket Deal Direct to promote their great brand of SM bats and cricket gear. SM is a fast growing range of cricket equipment, which Cricket Deal Direct imports directly from the manufacturer to cut out the middle man to offer high quality products at discount prices.

As well as all the cricket gear you would expect to find, Cricket Deal Direct also has an impressive range of women’s kit designed by women for women called The Heather Knight Collection, with the full support of England Vice Captain, Heather Knight.

There’s also superb products for coaches and juniors, as well as great value outdoor cricket equipment.


It won’t take up much of your time, and the only up-front cost is a small outlay towards the cost of a sample kit for you to use, which you will easily recoup with your first order. Everything you then earn throughout the year will be yours to keep, which you can use to pay for your hobby.

To find out more about becoming a Club Champion for your club, call Ian Anderson, the Managing Director of Cricket Deal Direct for an informal chat on 01778 345618 or 07711 681136 .

This year SM Cricket and Cricket Deal Direct have sponsored the Lincolnshire Emerging Players Program.

Thirteen of Lincolnshire’s most promising young cricketers started their sessions towards the back end of 2014. The EPP is an ECB initiated program that encourages counties to put forward their most talented players for specialist one-to one coaching.

The chosen thirteen, which this year includes 5 girls, completed their first session at the University of Lincoln’s Human Performance Centre, where they underwent baseline fitness testing. Analysis of the players fitness levels included skinfold tests, a yo-yo test, sprint tests and video analysis using high speed cameras.

Ian Anderson, Managing Director of SM Cricket said we are very proud to be associated with Lincolnshire County Cricket and to sponsor this very important program. The full SM range of cricket gear can be seen at
