Ben, age 12, is a very focused cricketer who is always determined to work hard and improve his game. His hard work over the winter and at training sessions has allowed him to make great strides this year. When keeping he is now standing up to some of the quicker bowlers, which takes courage, determination and skill. This has resulted in him taking a number of stumpings this year - in fact more stumpings than catches, which is the sign of a really good keeper. Ben is also a very good runner between the wickets, using speed, vision and good communication to steal quick singles. Ben has rightly been rewarded with appearances for the district side.
Ben would like his award funds to be spent on groundsman 'make over' for outfield colts strip/practice/training areas.
Ben received his award from Alan Moreton, U13A Team Manager.
