Howzat? 12 not out as cleaning firm wins another contract with cricket club

OfficeCare has won a 12th consecutive contract with Derbyshire County Cricket Club to make sure its ground and facilities are in perfect condition. The deal will mean staff from the Pride Park based company will be on site 364 days a year providing cleaning services at the 3aaa County Ground in Derby. This will involve cleaning the boardroom and offices, changing rooms, the catering and banqueting facilities, plus the nearby elite performance centre with its gym and indoor practice nets. All 5000 seats will also be cleaned before the season starts in April. OfficeCare's staff will also provide additional cleaning of toilets and extra emptying of litter bins on NatWest T20 Blast match days because they attract a higher crowd.

Martin Booth, managing director of OfficeCare, said: “We are delighted that we are Derbyshire County Cricket Club's cleaning partner again for the 2016 season. As a local company we love nothing better than supporting its growth by allowing its staff to concentrate on the day-to-day business rather than worrying about cleaning.”

OfficeCare is an official partner of the club, with branding on the perimeter of the ground, match sponsorship, and member of the club's 1870s business club. The company's association with the club is not the longest for a sporting arena - it has been cleaning Derby County's stadium for 14 years. It also provides cleaning at Nottingham Greyhound Stadium as well as commercial buildings, educational establishments, and surgeries across the East Midlands.

Ryan Duckett, commercial director of Derbyshire County Cricket Club, said: "We are delighted to extend our partnership with OfficeCare for cleaning the home of Derbyshire cricket for another year. OfficeCare's staff have done a great job for us for more than a decade. The partnership between our two organisations has grown and we look forward to developing this further over the next year as we complete the second phase of ground development."
