Trevor has been Borderers head coach for a number of years and coaches all junior ages from the All-Star age group up to under-15s. In a normal year, Trevor would be volunteering as a cricket coach at numerous primary schools in the area, but Covid-19 hasn't put him off spreading the word about cricket.
During the initial phase of lockdown Trevor worked hard to keep in touch with the club parents and children via email and the website. He helped to organise several lockdown drills on the website to keep the children engaged.
As soon as ECB guidance permitted, Trevor began running one-to-one sessions (typically 45 minutes) throughout the week (2pm to 8pm) and at weekends (10am to 2pm). This equated to 38 hours of training per week. On top of this, Trevor manages almost all of the club admin (fees, membership forms, communications with parents, booking system for the lockdown training).
As the guidance changed Trevor has been able to work with small groups, giving ever more children the opportunity to continue practising cricket. At the most recent count, with one-to-ones, household bubbles training together and recently expanded small groups, Trevor has been able to provide the opportunity to train to 100 children per week.
Trevor has also loaned out at least one piece of equipment, mostly from his own stock, (whether a ball or helmet or gloves) to 42 children (which they have been able to keep for the duration of lockdown).
At a time when cricket has been severely restricted, Trevor has (almost single-handedly) been able to not only keep cricket going for the junior club members but also recruit 23 new juniors to the club, including several girls.
