The Tom Maynard Trust has made two more individual grant awards, bringing the number of young people to have benefited directly from financial support from the Trust to 44 since the initial awards were made in August 2012.
The Trust has now handed over more than a quarter of a million pounds to help individuals applying for grants and to support education and development programmes across a variety of sports.
The latest recipients are:
Roman Walker – 15-year-old opening bowler from Wrexham who is a member of the Glamorgan Under-17s squad and who hopes to make it on to the county’s academy at the end of the year. He has been awarded a grant of £244 to help with the provision of specialist footwear and other cricket equipment.
Emma Goddard – A young golfer from Liverpool, just turned 25, who is attached to the Royal Liverpool club on the Wirrall and who recently turned professional. She has been awarded a grant of £1,500 to help her with sports psychology support and with the costs of turning pro and trying to establish herself on the Ladies professional circuit.
Good luck to them both!
