We at Viking Butchers are huge cricket fans and we always go to support Market Rasen Cricket Club whenever we have the time. They recently asked us to sponsor them and we were all too happy to do so.
A Little Bit of Info about Market Rasen Cricket Club
Market Rasen Cricket Club have four different teams that you can become a part of if you prove that you are good enough. These are the 1st XI, the 2nd XI, the Sunday 1st XI, the Women’s 1st XI.

Everyone at the club is extremely passionate about cricket and they are always willing to accept new members, regardless of their skill level. If you are a complete beginner, everyone associated with the club will do their utmost to turn you into the best cricket player that you can be.
Despite being a small cricket club, they have great training facilities. Furthermore, there is a quaint pavilion where they regularly host events that help to bring the community together. Most of the people that live in Market Rasen support the cricket team.
Everyone Loves to Play Against Market Rasen
As sponsors of the cricket club, we provide Viking sausage sandwiches as part of the lunch spread when Market Rasen are hosting cricket games.
We have had no shortage of visiting players try our sausages during the lunch break and then pop into our butcher shop to get some to take home with them. Many of them tell us how they have never had a better tasting sausage and wish that they could play cricket in Market Rasen more often.
Our Reward to Our Players
We like to see our team do well and we know that they love our sausages, so to give them an extra incentive to score big runs or take a bucketful of wickets, we give the Market Rasen Player of the Match 24 delicious Viking sausages as a reward.
If that isn’t enough to make you give your all, we are not entirely sure what will to be honest.
