Spar wholesaler Capper & Co has agreed a major deal with Glamorgan cricket club to sponsor a new stand at its redeveloped home at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.

Capper, which operates the Spar brand for south Wales and south-east England, will invest an annual sum believed to be about £10,000 for the next five years.

The new stadium is due to be completed in March and has been chosen to host one of the Ashes test matches against Australia next year.
