Our first-ever Jack Petchey Award winners announced!

Here are our first-ever Jack Petchey Achievement Award winners.

Arthur Salisbury (U15s)

In the words of U15s coach (and JPF Award Coordinator, Miguel Graham): "Arthur has worked extremely hard on improving his all-round game and has made a fantastic contribution to the U15s squad in training and matches alike.  He has shown great leadership qualities and a winning mentality whenever we play cricket."

Arthur has asked for his £200 award to go towards buying new equipment, including a bat and three pairs of batting gloves.

Luke Hornbuckle (U13s)

U13s coach, Izaac Bador reports: "Luke started this season in September with a great deal of enthusiasm for the game and a keenness to get involved - but what has impressed me most about Luke has been his subsequent focus and determination to improve the technical aspects of his game.  No one absorbs the coaching better than he does, no one has a more professional approach than he does, and his dedication to learning how to bowl line and length are reaping their rewards, as he has become a crucial and effective bowler for the U13s."

Thanks to Luke's award, the U13s squad will benefit from two new bats for the team kit bag.  After making his decision, Luke was heard to remark: "At least I'll get to use my own bat from now on!".

Flint Drummond (U11s)

Flint has excelled as a batsman this season.  At 11 years of age, he shows great potential. With scores of 51, 36, 27 and 24 not out, he has only lost his wicket once, when he scored 39.  Partnerships of 96 and 74 show a maturity beyond his years.  He has helped to lead the team to six victories out of six so far this season. 

Flint has decided that his £200 award should be spent on a portable cricket net, which will benefit the whole club.
