Llongyfarchiadau Nerys Saunders
A huge congratulations goes again to Nerys Saunders from Ynystawe CC for winning the ECB National Cricket Awards Cricket Innovators category (pictured here with CEO Leshia Hawkins).
Here's an excerpt from the initial nomination and shows why she fully deserves this award.
Enter Ynystawe Cricket Club and you will immediately have a clear picture of the safeguarding work Nerys has done for our club. A collage of safeguarding work done by all 7 junior age groups spread over a large notice board area. Nerys asked each team to undertake a piece of work setting out how they will behave within the club and what they expect on return. A truly inspirational piece of work and a visual aid that Nerys Saunders worked so hard to deliver.
Nerys is currently working on a second piece of innovative work by QR coding all our safeguarding policies and associated ECB guidelines. This is another first and brings us into a truly modern era of communication. Nerys hopes to launch this into the wider safeguarding community once it's fine tuned.
She is so much more than a safeguarding officer though :-
- A key member of our executive whose wider knowledge and expertise is truly valued.
- Captains our ladies 2nd XI that won their division in 2022.
- Scorer for our 3rd team
- Mum of two boys who play for the club and husband who coaches our u13s hugely successful school teacher of repute.
