Street Coach of the Year

Mantrulaady Thushaarah was awarded Street Coach of the Year for his work leading our Sutton Street Project , through which he has played a key role in supporting the local community. He has been involved in the project for 4 years and always goes the extra mile for the kids attending the project.

Described as ‘inspirational, motivating, kind and respectful’ by children and parents alike, Thushaarah provides a great stepping stone for children to take their cricket further.

Project of the Year

Our Croydon Street Project was named Project of the Year for their fantastic work providing opportunities to be active in an area where these are lacking. The project brings together 140 young people each week and helps them to learn new skills and make friends.

This year a selection of the kids from this project went on a residential to Arundel, in partnership with the Arundel Cricket Foundation, which was a fantastic chance for team building and experiencing
new opportunities. The project has helped the kids to build confidence and friendships in an enthusiastic and engaging environment.
