Warwickshire County Cricket Club has agreed a new commercial partnership with Oldbury-based heating services contractors Lord Combustion Services to be an official partner for the next three years.

"As a club, we have ambitions to make Edgbaston the most environmentally efficient cricket venue in the UK and leveraging the support of Lord Combustion Services can help us achieve this goal."
