Louis introduces Zulu Sports to Cleck’
Louis Aspeling is a man well known to the Cricket Section at Moorend having been with Cleck’ almost nine years ago as an overseas batsman and his reputation as a decent man enhanced the Club’s decision to put their trust in a company he represents that promises good quality clothing and cricket items at affordable prices.
The following statement has been kindly put forward by Louis; “The concept and idea of creating the brand ‘Zulu Sports’ started back in 2015. Looking around all the Clubs in the Drakes Huddersfield League and beyond we came to the realisation that most Clubs have mixed feelings towards suppliers, in regards receiving an affordable product but not neglecting quality. We also noticed how bigger brands out in the marketplace were crippling already struggling Clubs with they're inflated prices and numerous set up costs. So we decided on offering the following;
All our set up services are free.
We have two options that rewards’ Clubs for joining us online. These are as follows;
A raffle bat or eleven free short sleeve playing shirts on placing a bulk order of forty plus garments.
When I received a call from Cleck’s Captain John Wood to discuss the potential of becoming the Club’s supplier, the brand could not be more excited of the prospect. I myself had great memories spending the 2008 season as their overseas. Back then I can recall a Club sticking to their ‘guns’ and pride themselves in doing it right when others didn't. Straight honest folk!
Zulu Sports already have some top Clubs on board and having Cleck’ on our books would really get us noticed by others in the Bradford League, hence the recent signing of Scholes CC and Jer Lane CC also just recently.
John was particular on what himself/the Club and his team wanted and we were more than happy to accommodate him in his requests.

As we enter 2017 exciting changes have been taking place and new additions and options can be offered now to our customers.
We offer a bespoke design service which gives us an edge over other competitors out there. All our garments and manufacturing duties are UK based, thus supporting our ever changing British economy.
We are now able to manufacture and design clothing for any sport type on the market.
Zulu will be following Cleckheaton CC this season with great interest and is looking forward to see the boys hopefully picking up silverware wearing the Zulu brand.
All the best for the forthcoming season!!”
