Presentation Night

At Aston Manor's recent successful Presentation Evening it was announced that, due to a change in work commitments, Dominic Ashton has reluctantly found it necessary to stand down as Youth Development Officer for Aston Manor Cricket Club.

The club thanks Dom for the incredible job he has done for Aston Manor and Youth Cricket, in general, over the last fourteen years and he was presented with a suitable memento to recognise his contribution. In 1994 Dom was at the forefront in helping to restructure Youth Cricket at Aston Manor into one of the best in the County. Aston Manor were one of the first clubs in the region to gain the important 'Club Mark Status', and with the help of Dom's tireless fundraising work the club has offered fantastic opportunities to local youngsters to develop their cricket talents.

There was also a special award to Bob Evans who has finally retired from playing after many years of sterling work as 3rd XI captain giving many of the talented youngsters their first taste of senior cricket.

During both Dom and Bob's involvement, three Manor youngsters have gone on to represent England at Youth level and two of them now have contracts with Warwickshire CCC. The club's meteoric rise into the Birmingham League has been based upon the continual flow of youngsters from its youth ranks, with the current 1st XI squad being predominantly based on players who have developed through the Academy and the 3rd XI. All of the awards were presented by Warwickshire starlet Chris Woakes, who himself benefited from the help and guidance given by Dom and Bob during his days at Church Road.

Young seam bowler, Shaun Carroll, scooped the prestigious 'James Francis Memorial' trophy together with his awards as 'Young Cricketer of the Year' and 'Under 15 Bowler of the Year' whilst the senior awards went to Julius Benjamin (1st XI), Abdul Rahim (2nd XI) and Quas Haider (3rd XI).

The Sunday Player of the Year was Ateeq Javid, but the Warwickshire youngster was unable to personally collect his award as he was away on a training camp with the England U18 squad.
