A local cricketer has been named as the Ealing Borough coach of the year in the annual Middlesex Coaching Association (MCoA) awards.

Tanvir Ahamed of the London Tigers Cricket Club in Southall received his award at Lord’s recently.

The award is presented to a coach who the judges believe goes the extra mile and is a true coaching hero to their club, league, county, or school.

Middlesex’s Club Coach, Rory Coutts, was on hand at Lord’s to hand the awards out to each of the deserving recipients, with Chair of the MCoA, Rod Croucher, presiding over the presentation evening.

The MCoA awards acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of those in the game whose commitment and dedication to cricket coaching have gone above and beyond the norm.

They have since been presented annually to volunteers within the game who have excelled in their delivery of coaching across the county within the recreational game.

Recreational clubs across the county are encouraged to nominate individuals for entry into one of four categories, with the entry criteria outlined by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), before a judging panel sits to assess each nomination to ultimately determine the winners.

The four separate ECB recognized award categories are: Young Coach of the Year, Coach of the Year, Outstanding Services to Coaching, and Outstanding Services to Coach Development, with two new Middlesex Cricket Special Award Winners, also named this year to mark their immense services to coaching in the recreational game.
