UA Trio Achieve County Awards

With the County award nights taking place on both side of the border recently it was great to see so many of our young players all dressed up getting the recognition they deserve…

There were several Ultimate Academy players who played County level again this season, a great effort for all their hard work in the winter months both here at the asylum and with their respective county squads.

A special mention must go to these three lads, who achieved recognition for their county performances throughout the 2017 season.

Sam Mulligan (Clitheroe CC), who has just signed up for his 4th consecutive Ultimate Academy for 2018, was named Player of the Year for Lancashire u16s.

Gavin Whipp (Copley CC), a regular on the Ultimate Academy was awarded Best All Rounder for Yorkshire u14 development team.

Matthew Wood (Lytham CC), the youngest player on the UA in 2017 and returning for 2018, was awarded Player of the Year for Lancashire u10s.

Well done boys!
