Henman has been briefed to initially focus on the UK market, targeting the UK’s online and social media communities of country cricket clubs, players, schools and colleges, fans, coaches.

Activity will include creating video testimonial and product placement opportunities at key county cricket clubs.

David Geensen, co-founder of Quickscore, said: “Henman Communications has great credentials in the sports and technology media sectors and has a wealth of experience bringing new innovative sports products to market in the UK. They will advise across all areas of PR and brand building and help deliver our strategic communication plans to build awareness across online and social media channels.”

“Quickscore brings cricket and technology together enabling cricket fans around the world amazing live-match experience and increased match day enjoyment through fun, and informative content, in-depth match data, videos and 3D graphics, all in real-time!
