Shropshire coaches up for awards

Two local coaches have been put forward for a prestigious award. Jonathan Caldecott and Simon Gregory are in the running for the NatWest Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards.

Jonathan was put forward by the Shropshire Cricket Coaches Association in the Outstanding Contribution to Coaching category, while Simon was nominated for the Coach of the Year award. Jonathan, from Market Drayton, is lead coach for Shropshire’s disability sides, with the D40 side once again making the national final this season, as well as coaching at club and county level over the years.

Simon (pictured) was nominated after his work with Shropshire Age Group sides, both boys and girls, and also at his club, Bridgnorth, where he plays for the first team in the Birmingham League. He has also played for Shropshire this season. Cricket Shropshire’s performance cricket manager Ed Ashlin explains, “Simon truly embodies the spirit of an exceptional modern-day coach – giving back to the game of cricket through development of junior cricketers (both boys and girls). He helps them enjoy reaching their full potential and continue to play the game of cricket for years to come, representing club, district, county and possibly beyond.”
