We had our attention drawn recently to the link below, which relates the story of Dan Bowser – a young cricketer we have supported with an individual grant in the past – and Chris Edwards, both playing for the England Learning Disability side against Denmark Under-17s, and how their act of sportsmanship earned them the MCC/BBC Christopher Martin-Jenkins Spirit of Cricket Award for 2018. You can see the full story here:
Note that in the picture attached to the story, Dan is wearing the number 55 shirt, which he does in memory of Tom. Dan trialled for Glamorgan back in the mid-/late 2000s and still speaks very highly of the way Tom helped and looked after him, the pair having got to know one another in regular matches between South Glamorgan and Devon at age group level.
We’re a little late to the story but we thought it was something well worth sharing.
