KLG Rutland is delighted to once again be partnered with Trent Bridge-based women’s cricket team, The Blaze, for their 2024 season.

The Blaze represent the East Midlands in women’s cricket, partnering with county teams Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire, plus Loughborough University, to showcase the best female cricketers that the region has to offer.

The partnership with The Blaze began at the beginning of 2023, and sees The Blaze’s stunning orange playing kits emblazoned with the KLG Rutland logo on the sleeve.

This sponsorship is part of KLG Rutland’s ongoing commitment to helping the local community in Nottingham, Derby and the wider East Midlands area, championing sport and other brilliant causes.

The Blaze take part in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and the Charlotte Edwards Cup, competing with teams from other regions across England and Wales in white-ball cricket.

Exciting names turning out for The Blaze in 2024 include England stars Sarah Glenn, Tammy Beaumont and Nat Sciver-Blunt, all of whom are sure to excite the crowds at Trent Bridge, Grace Road and other local cricket grounds throughout the summer.

Speaking about the partnership between KLG Rutland and The Blaze in 2023, James Cutt, the Regional Director of Women’s Cricket, said, “We are hugely grateful for KLG Rutlands support; they are a business who take pride in serving their local area, and we are similarly proud to represent our region.

“Women’s cricket is at an exciting time, with increasingly more resources in place to aid our development and this is only going to help us continue to grow. 

“We’re rightly ambitious as a region, and to have this support in our first season will doubtless help us to achieve our goals.”
