Joe has won the Jack Petchey Award for January 2008. This is in recognition of his help coaching the U9s and U11s on Friday evenings, his assistance in winter nets, having topped the bowling averages for the u15s (a "year young") and regularly featuring in the u16s.
Joe is a regular helper with the younger colts throughout both the summer and winter. His all-round cricketing skills provide him with the understanding of what needs to be conveyed to the colts. His organization and communication skills make him very effective in doing this. Joe's enthusiasm is infectious and helps to nurture a hunger for cricket with those colts that he assists.
He's ever present on a summer Friday evening and was often there all day Saturday last season, even though he rarely got a game for the men's team (will undoubtedly play this season).
Joe has decided to put his money towards portable nets for driving and fielding practice.
Joe received his award, at indoor winter nets, from Martin Ekers - Under 13A Team Manager.
