Name of Applicant: Noah Parfitt
Address: The Old Nursery, Cathay Lane, Cheddar
Postcode: BS273HB
Age: 11
Date of Birth: 11/02/2012
How long have you been in Cheddar: all of my life
Have you applied before?: No
Why are you making this Applicant: I played for Somerset County cricket club last year in the boys U11’s team. I have loved all the training and I worked really hard to secure my place in the team – throughout the year they reduce the number in the pathway squad depending on your performance and I was very happy to have made the team (especially as I was the only state school child to get through) . I then had to re-trial in the summer to get a place in the U12’s pathway squad for this coming season – and I got a place. It has involved a lot of travelling. This years winter training costs for me is £215 and I would be really grateful for anything that Cheddar Youth Trust could contribute.
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 as well as paying for the costs of other sports clubs
About yourself: I am 11 years old and go to Fairlands Middle School. I find school work very hard as I am dyslexic and have to work harder than others which I find very frustrating. Playing sport is what I love and I am good at and it is something I would love to do as a career – my dream is to be a professional cricketer. I know I have to train hard to keep a high standard of cricket as I am competing against boys that train a lot at their private schools – we just dont have the facilities at my school. I play for local teams in cricket, football and hockey. I play in all the teams at school and go to all the training – I also enjoy rugby.
