Whilst not successful in winning either award. The club are proud to announce that Tim was nominated for the two most hotly contested awards – Lifetime Achiever and Unsung Hero.
Tim’s nominations were primarily for the massive amount of work he has done over the years coaching the colts – heading up successfully both the All Stars and the Dynamos co-currently in recent times. Tim has also massively contributed to the club, being Chairman of Cricket for over a decade. Away from the club, Tim has also been heavily involved in coaching countywide, until recently this included the Devon Lions.
Although the club would like to have seen Tim win one or both of the awards. The calibre of fellow unsuccessful nominees was amazing. Three with varying degrees of association with Torquay CC were Dawn Green, Nigel Mountford and John Webber. The club would like to go on record, to congratulate all those nominated as well as the, winners.
Tim’s time will though undoubtedly come with age (well) on his side – the club’s citation writer might need some more coaching in the art of spin though! (Tim actually started out life as a, more than useful off “spin” bowler.)
It would certainly be an honour for both the Western family and Torquay CC if Tim does ultimately win the Lifetime Achiever award in the (near) future. Therefore, becoming the first off-spring of a Lifetime Achiever award winner to also win the award – father, Ian, won it way back in 2007. Evo though is predicting it is a two horse (or should that be family) race though!
Every club needs a Tim, but it always amazes Evo how few clubs nominate their “Tim.” Clubs can’t survive without volunteers and Torquay CC recognise this. As a result, there is a steady flow of nominations always being submitted by the club to show its appreciation.
