A CRICKET coach and former Helsby Golf Club captain has been shortlisted for this year’s Sky Sports Coach Awards.
Keen golfer and club member Peter Hancock, who has been involved in cricket in the county for about 25 years and was a Cheshire Cricket Development Officer, won the North West award for outstanding contribution and services to cricket coaching.
Kathryn Hoather of Helsby Golf Club said: “The awards were launched at the beginning of 2007 as a way of acknowledging those who have made a significant contribution to the support and development of coaches and coaching in cricket in a variety of ways, which in turn, has left a legacy for either their home club or county.
“Peter has been involved in Cheshire cricket for 25 years and is currently involved in coach education as an assessor and tutor, having previously been coach to county age group teams and the emerging players.”
Peter, of Northwich, will now contest the national finals at Lords in October.
