"We now have an opportunity to build the partnership still further and we are particularly delighted to welcome Shepherd Neame's new partners, Holsten UK, as a key part of the new deal."

Shepherd Neame's Managing Director, Jonathan Neame, added: "We're delighted to renew our support of the county's Norwich Union League side, particularly after their fabulous achievement in winning the title last season."
