This season Cardiff-based architect firm Powell Dobson have launched
the Powell Dobson Cricket Bursary to mark their 50th anniversary.
The Powell Dobson Cricket Bursary gives young, talented cricketers much needed
support by providing one-on-one coaching sessions with the excellent coaching
team at Glamorgan Cricket.
Glamorgan Cricket would like to take this opportunity to thank
Ann-Marie Smale, Managing Director of Powell Dobson and a qualified coach
herself, for supporting this fantastic scheme which aligns with one of
Glamorgan Chief Executive Hugh Morris’ core goals of discovering and nurturing
the Welsh players of the future.
Before the Glamorgan versus Somerset match in the NatWest T20
Blast, Glamorgan Cricket were pleased to present the first Powell Dobson
cricket bursary award to 10-year-old Faris of St Fagan’s Cricket
Glamorgan Cricket and Cricket Wales’ community and development
manager Mark Frost said: "We are really pleased to get this bursary
opportunity off the ground thanks to Powell Dobson, especially as we hope that
no young cricketer should be disadvantaged from the opportunity to receive
excellent 1:1 coaching at our National Cricket Centre."
The club sends its congratulations to Faris and perhaps one day he
could be walking out to the middle at The SSE SWALEC representing Glamorgan.
Bursaries are still available and if you would like to nominate a
child aged 10 or under please email [email protected]
