Newport Cricketers Gain Young Leaders Award

April 2013

Volunteer members of Newport Cricket Club’s Junior section took part in a Young Leaders Award to mark the opening of the 2013 cricket season :-

Young Leaders Award

Some of the club’s most promising 14 – 16 year old Junior players took part in a Young Leaders Coach Education Award. 17 players attended the course, (5 girls and 12 boys), with course Tutor Mike Knight remarking that the group had totally embraced the concept of the Young Leaders Award. Many of the Newport youngsters have aspirations of going on to University to teach/coach or to study on Sports related degree courses and it is hoped that the Young Leaders qualification will give them a head start, when it comes to writing CV’s and UCAS Personal Statements.

All of the youngsters enjoyed the course and will get an early opportunity to put their new found skills into action, when they organise the following Newport Cricket Club events during the summer :-

Newport Junior Schools Girls’ Indoor Cricket Festival on Wednesday 17th April
