SPORTENG teams up with Glen Iris Cricket Club: a winning partnership for the community

Feb 20|NewsBy Lucas Skelton

At SPORTENG, we believe in more than just playing the game of planning, designing and quality-assuring the development of sports fields; we're committed to creating a positive impact in the communities we serve. That's why we are thrilled to announce our recent sponsorship of the Glen Iris Cricket Club, a move that aligns perfectly with our values and commitment to supporting local sports. This sponsorship has been brought forth by our Fields of Play Team Leader and Glen Iris club member Lucas Skelton. Lucas has been an integral part of the Club, both on and off the field, having recently celebrated his 150th cricket game with the club. Lucas has been the club’s coach and a professional player for the past 8 seasons while also coaching his son in the juniors, and his wife, Michelle, is the club's merchandise coordinator.
