Hethersett and Tas Valley Cricket Club celebrated its youth section with a dads v lads match and presentation event at the club’s Flordon headquarters.

Youth head coach Sara Worley praised all the youngsters who have trained or played for the club this season:

“This year we started to take in children as young as five and as a result 97 youngsters have come along to the club and that is the most we have ever had,” she said.

The club fielded teams in nine competitions across five age groups.

“We achieved three second places which is a fantastic achievement given the strength of some of the clubs we compete against,” she said, adding that the club’s work with juniors is only possible through the help and support of qualified coaches, older juniors and parents.

This season’s Under-9s and Under-17s have been managed by under-17 players Ben Woodruff and Jonny Cooper.

The junior Player of the Year award was presented by Sara to Jack Gibson:

“Jack was a unanimous and obvious decision. He has had a fantastic season and has shone not only in junior cricket but also in our senior teams. Aged only 14, he was a regular player in the second team and finished playing for the first team. He is a very stylish batsman who shows real promise and sits in third place in the overall club batting table with 776 runs, behind only first team captain Damian Fahy and first team opener Ian Bryce.” Sara said.

Other awards presented were as follows:

Under-9s awards presented by Ben Woodruff and Jonny Cooper — Batting, Will English; Bowling, Ollie Last; Manager’s Award, Alfie Bird.

Under-11s awards presented by Sara Worley — Batting, Harrison Winship; Bowling, Aidan Chamberlain and James Ellis; Manager’s Award, Jacob Coglin-Hibbert.
