International Men’s Day

International Men’s Day

With moneycorp & Essex Cricket Club 


Which kind of account would you like to create?

This International Men’s Day, it’s never been more important to consider the wellbeing and lives of men and boys, as Covid-19 has not just had a huge impact on our physical health, but mental health too

As Essex Cricket's international payments partner, we have collaborated together to create this short video on how their players are managing their mental health, how to cope when under pressure, and how to lead by example. 

Whether you’re representing your county on the cricket pitch, or struggling with adjusting to the world right now, it is important to check in on your mental health, and the wellbeing of others.  

We chatted with Bowlers Sam Cook and Jamie Porter, Batsman Tom Westley, and in-house Club Psychologist William Winstone on how they focus when under pressure and how to lead by example. Watch the video below: 



Essex Cricket was a natural choice to celebrate International Men’s Day with us. We have watched and supported the club win numerous titles, but we have also seen how they have coped during the Covid-19 pandemic. They have rescheduled entire seasons and helped players keep up their physical and mental health, as well as ran a Covid-19 support and resource hub for the community, similar to what we here at moneycorp have done. Essex Cricket is also dedicated to gender equality in sport, becoming the home of Women’s cricket in 2020, including the new London Spirit Hundred ball team & England Women’s International fixtures. Both of these formats of the game were scheduled to be broadcast live on Sky Sports. Hopefully come 2021 sport will be able to resume to some normality and we’ll be able to see these efforts to level up the playing field for female cricketers come to fruition. 

These are challenging times and the outcome of that is seen very clearly in the financial markets, with currency fluctuations adding another complication to an already hostile business environment. The situation has demonstrated the importance of us all working together, and here at moneycorp we stay motivated by trying helping businesses and individuals through this turbulent time.
