Why are you making this Applicant: In the summer I was selected to take part in a trial to get into the pathway training for Somerset County Cricket and I got through both rounds and was selected for the U10’s squad and I am only 8 years old – I was very proud of myself. The cost for my training is £175 just for the winter and the summer there is more costs and match fees to pay. I am the third person in my family to get in to the Pathway training and I had my first training session at Milfield cricket centre on Sunday and absolutely loved it .
How much money do you need?: I would very grateful for any amount that would help go towards the cost of training and travel costs
Details of money raised from other sources: My grandparents help out with some of the costs towards training and kit – but now there are three of us playing county cricket it has become very expensive for my parents to afford.
About yourself: I am 8 years old and I am in Puffin Class at Cheddar First School, my teacher is Mr Davies. I love school and I love to learn. I really love reading and I am now a ‘free reader’. I have always enjoyed playing cricket by starting off in the All Stars then the Dynamos and this summer I played for Cheddar U11’s and took several wickets – I was very happy! I am looking forward to playing for Cheddar again when the cricket season starts. I practice all the time in my garden, either on my own or with my brother and sister. I love playing all sports, I play for Cheddar football team and have just started hockey – which I am getting better at. At school I enjoy the sports club and science club.
