The Foundation team up with world famous Auto-Roller in an exciting new partnership.

The Auto-Roller Cricket Roller Range is used at the top test cricket grounds, as well as county, village and school greens throughout the world. Renowned for British manufacturing excellence, Gloucestershire clubs will be familiar with the iconic brand and cricket roller designs which have been trusted choice for groundskeepers since the 1920s.Autoroller Cricket Roller Logo

Continuously developed over 100 years, the Auto-Roller today retains all the features that have made it so successful around the world.  To celebrate this partnership we have been issued with a discount code, giving Gloucestershire clubs the opportunity to take advantage of an early bird offer of £500 off if ordered by the end of March 2024.  To obtain your unique code, please contact Steve Silk.

Auto-Roller’s services goes beyond new cricket rollers, offering clubs refurbishment, respraying, and servicing of existing rollers as well as the opportunity to hire a 4ft or 3ft Auto-Roller.

Auto-Roller will also once again be supporting GCF Grounds Association events across the 2024 season in Bristol and Cheltenham. These events are free and open to groundskeepers from any Gloucestershire affiliated club. They are designed to support the development of groundskeepers from recreational cricket clubs, providing the latest information, techniques and cutting edge technology that will enhance club grounds across the County.

It’s an exciting time to be partnering with Auto-Roller as there are developments in the design phase that we are really looking forward to sharing with you soon.

Club Development Manager Scott Tremain explained…

“To formalise a partnership with Auto-Roller, who are synonymous with cricket heritage, is fantastic. Together we aim to alleviate some of the financial challenges cricket clubs face, by making the purchasing of machinery more accessible and affordable. Groundkeepers across Gloucestershire volunteer year-round, which is often unseen, and our hope is that with greater access to high quality machinery and servicing, it will support their ambition to produce high quality pitches and enhance the playing experience.”

Michelle Clarke-Dowse of Auto-Roller added…

“Thank you for choosing Auto-Roller, we are delighted to extend our support to cricket clubs and we are happy to help continue assisting grounds workers to maintain grounds across Gloucestershire.  We are dedicated to providing the best solutions for rolling cricket grounds across the world and look forward to keeping you updated on our latest developments!

Here at Auto-Roller, we understand the importance of well-maintained cricket grounds and we are here to ensure that clubs have the tools and support needed for success.  It is exciting to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of cricket clubs in Gloucestershire and wish you all the best for the season ahead!”
