Glos County Age Group Awards Night – Report & Pics

The evening – which was held at the Bristol Pavilion – provided a chance to celebrate both the outstanding individual and collective achievements of the 2017 season.

Individual achievements included Under 17 allrounder George Drissell (Bedminster) making his first team debut for Gloucestershire, Under 14 Will Naish (Frocester) playing for the south and west at the Bunbury Festival and 16-year-old Danielle Gibson (Dumbleton) being selected in the Kia Women’s Super League winning Western Storm squad.

Team achievements included the Under 17 boys reaching the one-day semi-finals and the Under 12s and 13s boys squads winning their respective Taunton Festival – the latter going through the entire season undefeated.

The event also featured an onstage conversation between Gloucestershire head of talent pathway Tim Hancock, Drissell and George Hankins who has progressed from the age group squads to the first team.

Tim Hancock said:

“It was fantastic to have so many people there to celebrate what was a very successful season across our age groups.

“Over the last few years we have seen a growing trend of success for our county squads and that was no different this year with the Under 17 boys reaching a national semi-final and both the under 12s and 13s picking up silverware.

“The awards also highlighted the achievements of individuals within our pathway and demonstrate that the future is looking bright for Gloucestershire Cricket.”
