Many congratulations to Ruby Spencer, who was awarded the Eric Raynor Trophy at the County AGM last night.
The Eric Rayner trophy is awarded to the Cambridgeshire junior player who has made a significant contribution to badminton during the season by demonstrating commitment, enthusiasm and commendable behaviour on court.
Ruby was nominated by her coaches for her excellent progress this year, and especially for the spirit and attitude to training and playing she has displayed. She has been a dedicated player for the County U16 team, and participant in squad practice sessions. Her nomination was supported by several coaches and other adults who have managed, coached or played with her over the year, who praised her exceptional approach.
The trophy was again awarded twice this year, with a second award being made to Katrina Dunsire. Katrina was nominated by her coach for her hard work with the Cambridgeshire Schools Badminton Association, for her commitment to training and also helping with junior training at St Neots, and for her progress as a ladies and mixed player at Swavesy. Katrina was described as an excellent role model.
Unfortunately, Katrina couldn't attend the meeting to receive the trophy.
