Sandro Forte, Managing Partner, said "I was born and grew up in Weston, have run a business in Weston and played cricket in the town most of my life. So I am delighted and particularly proud to have formed a relationship with Weston-super-Mare Cricket Club which will, I'm sure, benefit every player, member and associate of the Club. This is not just about sponsorship but the creation of a fun and participative environment - and in that respect we will actively encourage everyone to take advantage of the hospitality we will be extending at selected home games, as part of our four year commitment to the Club."
Weston CC Club Captain, Chris Davidson, commented “Sponsorship Agreements like ours with Forte Financial provide vital support for clubs such as ourselves. It means we can provide better training facilities and additional equipment for the club’s junior sides who we hope will become future first team or even professional cricketers. Our intention is to bring the highest standard of cricket in the region to the town, and relationships such as this can only help with that aspiration”.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:

In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
