Ryan Sidebottom – Iconic swing bowler calls time at the top of his game

At the end of this county season iconic swing bowler Ryan Sidebottom will call time on his 20 year career as a professional cricketer, a career which has spanned 3 decades and seen him break records for his country and county. Playing a pivotal role in England winning the T20 World Cup in 2010, Ryan is the only player in the recent history of the game to win five county championships.

​Ryan will retire from the sport still at the top of his game and is arranging a number of testimonial events to celebrate his career at which he hopes to see many faces from the last 20 years to make his retirement celebrations a time to remember for everyone involved. 

Deep Blue Telecom are proud to sponsor Ryan in his final season as well as supporting two charities close to Ryan’s heart: Martin House Children’s Hospice and his own Cricket Foundation, who will benefit from money raised during the testimonial period.

Race Day

And they’re off – on Wednesday 16th of October the team at Deep Blue, several customers and suppliers enjoyed a fun day at the races.   It was a wintry day but with the luxury of a covered viewing balcony and delicious refreshments in a hospitality box in the Millennium Stadium at Wetherby Racecourse,  a good time was had by all. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the collection for Martin House (our chosen charity) we raised £238. This was gratefully received and we were informed that this will cover  the cost of their medical supplies for five whole days.
