We are delighted to announce that Billy Root has become an official ambassador for The Barmy Army!
The Glamorgan all-rounder will don Barmy Army stickers on his New Balance bats throughout the 2019 season and work with us on a number of projects to promote The Barmy Army membership scheme, Barmy Army Cricket Club fixtures and future tours with Barmy Travel.
“I’m pretty proud actually” says Root. “I’ve been involved with The Barmy Army before and I’ve got a lot of close friends that are involved as well. I’ve seen the impact they can have both off the pitch and on it when England are playing, the atmosphere and the buzz they generate can lift the players out there massively. It’s great to be a part of it and i’m looking forward to what we can do together during a massive summer and beyond.”
Chris Millard, Managing Director of The Barmy Army, said "I'm delighted to welcome a close friend and immensely talented cricketer to become our first Barmy Army ambassador.
He joined us during our recent Ashes tour and instantly became an integral part of the fun. Win or lose, The Barmy Army are determined to sing our hearts out and support the team - and at 3-0 down, he was doing just that in 40-degree heat at the SCG.
Billy is the perfect ambassador for The Barmy Army and i’m massively excited to have him on board our growing team."
