Congratulations to this month’s Sports Players of the Month for May. As we’re in Cricket season, the Sports Department has voted for two Lower Sixth students who have been ‘wicket’ players this month and, as always, represent the very best attitude towards sport at Trinity.
The Sportsman of the Month for May is Lower Sixth student Felix and Sportswoman of the Month for May is Sylvie.
Mr Kench, Director of Sport, explains why each student has been recognised this month:
“Sylvie has captained the Girl’s Cricket 1st XI in their recent hard ball matches with successful wins against Surbiton High and Ibstock Place putting them into the Surrey School’s Semi-Final. She has played a leading role in organising her teammates to attend training and creating a real appetite towards Cricket. Alongside her leadership, Sylvie has been the standout performer for the team with both bat and bowl, taking several wickets and being retired not out several times. Well done Sylvie on an outstanding term of Cricket thus far.”
This year, the Girls’ Cricket team have been making school history with our first ever hard ball Cricket fixtures, which they have been very successful in and thoroughly enjoyed. We look forward to seeing more from them this term.
“Felix has captained the 3rd XI this term outstandingly, helping to organise his teammates and ensure that all players are enjoying the game. The team has performed superbly so far: after a narrow loss to St George’s Weybridge they bounced back the following week with a sterling victory against a strong St Paul’s outfit. Outside of school, Felix is instrumental in his coaching of the Trinity Mid-Whitgiftian’s Junior Cricket Club. Felix’s ethos of giving back and helping the next generation is admirable and thoroughly impressive. Well done.”
Felix has been a volunteer cricket coach since he was 14 and working towards his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. He has previously said of the experience, “The feeling of fulfilment you get from making a positive impact on others is one that simply cannot be replicated.”
