I am delighted to announce that in the last week I have been contacted by John Cook, ECB Regional Coach Education Executive (South Central), who has declared Eversley CC the Coaching Club of the Year!!!
Representatives from Eversley will attend the OSCAs award ceremony at the Ageas Bowl in a few weeks time to claim this prestigious award on behalf of the club. At the same awards ceremony we have many individuals nominated for awards also including the departing popular and long serving Terry Lynch, best of luck to all those nominated.
The reason I am so proud of ECC for winning this is that we did not go out with the goal of trying to win an award, this is simply what we do on a weekly basis. This means that what we consider to be our standard, what we expect of ourselves year in and out, is considered exceptional by the ECB when compared to our rival clubs across the area. On top of that if you speak to the colts committee they acknowledge there still areas we can improve upon so we have the potential to be even better!! To everyone who contributes to the colts section I want to say a huge thank you and well done, you are actively contributing to both the successful present and the future of the club.
If you have a child in the colts section and want to see this sort of high standard and success continue then why not learn about coaching and get involved. Dave Howorth, club legend and head of colts, would love to hear from you.
The colts season for 2019 wraps up with the awards evening this Friday September 6th at Eversley in front of the clubhouse beginning at 6pm sharp, we sincerely hope you can make it to share in the celebrations. Dave and his team would welcome some assistance setting up and putting away so if you have a spare hour or so before or after then please consider lending a hand.
Many thanks and hope to see you Friday,
