It might not have been the VE Day weekend that Evo had hoped for – his match 600 on-hold indefinitely because of Covid19.
Evo decided though to complete the Golden Slam of cricketing qualifications.
Having already qualified as a Scorer (Level 3), Umpire (Level 1), Welfare and Coaching (Coach Support Worker).
Evo decided to use “lockdown” to complete the missing piece in the jigsaw – Groundsmenship. Evo has now completed the Grounds Management Association Level 1 Cricket Grounds Maintenance e-learning package:
Evo said, “this course certainly has given me an appreciation of what the experts, Neil, Ian and Rob have to do and why. Having completed the course to stretch my cricketing knowledge and usefulness to the club. I will be willing to put what I learnt to good use as and when the opportunity arises. I would encourage any members to use this time wise and do the course – five hours(ish) and £25 well spent.”
