Awards for Middlesex at LTDCC Awards night

over 8 years ago | Uncategorised

At last night’s Lord’s Taverners Disability Cricket Championship Awards evening, Middlesex reigned supreme, with four of the six awards presented on the night heading in their direction.

With over 1,000 disabled young people taking part in the competition each year, from within sixteen boroughs across London, competition is keen, and the awards haul at last night’s glittering awards ceremony, held at the Kia Oval, gave Middlesex Cricket Board Director of Development, Katie Berry, huge encouragement that the programmes being delivered by her coaching teams into the Middlesex boroughs across London are really making a difference to those participants involved.....

“The commitment that our coaches showed to the programme is testament to the difference that we are making to young people’s lives. It’s important for us to provide as many opportunities as possible for people to play and enjoy our great game.”

“I am delighted that Michael has been acknowledged with this coaching award and am extremely proud of all of the team that dedicate so many hours to delivering our community programmes.”

The four awards that headed in Middlesex’s direction last night were as follows;

• Hackney Taveners Hub – Team of the Year

• Richard Barnes, Hackney Taverners Hub – Player of the Year

• Arman Ali, Tower Hamlets Taverners Hub – Most Improved Player of the Year

• Michael Wilson, Middlesex Cricket Board - Coach of the Year

On receiving his Coach of the Year Award last night, Michael Wilson of the Middlesex Cricket Board commented.....

“Having been a coach here at Middlesex for the last three years, I am so proud to have seen the progress that has made in disability cricket throughout the county of Middlesex over that time. These awards are the result of a lot of hard work that has been put in by a lot of different people, however I am personally delighted to have won the Coach of the Year Award. To see one of teams I have been working with and two of the players I have coached also pick up awards was extremely special for me last night”.

“Considering we’ve been only working with Tower Hamlets and Hackney Taverners Hubs for only about a year now, it’s amazing to see how much progress has been made and it gives us all the encouragement and proof that we need that the programmes we’re continuing to deliver into our boroughs are making a significant difference to the lives of the people involved."
