Northants Cricket all-rounder, Steven Crook has become the third Northants player to sign with SM Cricket, through UK cricket equipment company Cricket Deal Direct.
Crook has joined fellow Steelbacks, Graeme White and Muhammad Azhar Ullah in the SM Cricket family. This is mutually beneficial for both player and company, with the Northants Cricket Club Shop being the exclusive retailer of all SM Cricket gear in the UK.
This is a big coup for SM Cricket, as Steven Crook is one of Northants’ star players and played a key role in the team’s success last season, which included a match winning performance against Essex in the Friends Life t20 semi-finals.
On signing with SM Cricket, Crook said, “I am delighted to sign with SM, I have seen how good the gear looks and have heard great feedback about the equipment from Azhar and Graeme, which helped make my decision easier. I’m looking forward to using my new kit to score some runs for Northants.”
Ian Anderson, Managing Director of Cricket Deal Direct that runs the Club Shop commented, “We are very happy to welcome Steven to the SM and Cricket Deal Direct family. This is a big coup for us, to have someone of Steven’s profile join us, as we continue to grow and we look forward to seeing him gain lots of success using SM equipment.”
