Thurlow Nunn pitches in for cricket coach
07:10 13 June 2015
Vauxhall retailer Thurlow Nunn is sponsoring the Gresham’s School cricket coach by providing him with a Vauxhall to help him travel throughout the cricket season.
The dealership at Holt is supporting Mark Sorell, who boasts an impressive cricket career. A level-three high performance coach, Mark, from Adelaide in Australia, has gained international success as a cricket coach for both the Australian men’s and women’s cricket teams and will be joining the school, coaching the under-nines to under-18s.
Steve Adams, sports development director at Gresham’s said: “We are delighted to have a formed a partnership between the school and Thurlow Nunn Holt. Thurlow Nunn has very generously sponsored a car for Mark Sorell, our Gresham’s cricket professional, for the summer term.”
Mark said: “I couldn’t be happier with my new Vauxhall Corsa. I can’t thank the team at Thurlow Nunn enough for loaning me the car. It has been incredibly useful in allowing me to coach at Gresham’s.
“It will also be invaluable in helping me to start coaching both the Norfolk under-14 and under-15 teams this summer, as well as assisting Chris Brown, the Norfolk captain and coach, for a few coaching sessions for the full county men’s team.”
Andrew Parsons, general manager of Thurlow Nunn in Cromer Road, said: “We’re bowled over that we could help Mark and look forward to seeing the cricket season unfold. With Mark having stood as Australia’s head coach on the Pakistan tour in 2010, there’s no doubt Gresham’s team will have a good strike rate this season!”
