Arrowdawn support heralds arrival of new Gordonians duo

Integrated communications specialist Arrowdawn has provided fresh support for Aberdeen cricket club Gordonians as the side aims to inject new impetus to its league challenge this year.

Gordonians has added two overseas players to its ranks for the 2012 campaign thanks to a sponsorship deal supported by Aberdeen-based Arrowdawn.

The arrangement sees the arrival of New Zealand professional James Cowell, who has played in the UK before, and Coel Mahoney, who will play the season as the club’s overseas amateur.

Gordonians are competing in the Strathmore Premier Division – one tier below national league – for the first time in 10 years, after achieving two successive promotions. The side play their home games at the city’s Countesswells playing fields.

Arrowdawn is a long-time supporter of the club, and managing director Gordon Adie says: “We’re pleased to be continuing our close relationship with Gordonians and helping to welcome two important new signings.

“It’s a progressive and ambitious club that has its sights firmly set on new and even greater achievements, and I hope we can play a part as it pursues those.”

Gordonians’ club president Andrew Lowden says: “It’s fantastic to have James and Coel with us for what will be a very important season for the club. We look forward to their contribution as both players and coaches.

“We’re extremely grateful to Arrowdawn for this new demonstration of support. The company has been a significant sponsor of the club for some time now and we appreciate its continuing commitment.”

Arrowdawn, which has just been named Cisco Scottish Commercial Partner of the Year for 2012, provides and supports a portfolio of communications products, from voice over IP telephony to data network infrastructure and security.
