Jordon Named Corby’s Sports Volunteer Of The Year
The former Year 13 student, who is now a Sports Technician and Cricket Coach at CBA, was crowned winner thanks to his tireless commitment to developing the Academy's Under-13 Cricket Team.
Jordon has dedicated hours of his free time to training the team and securing funding, and his efforts culminated with a cup final win in the players' first full season.
The awards ceremony, organised by Corby Council, was held at the Best Western Rockingham Forest Hotel on Thursday, October 14th.
CBA's Director of Sport, Amy Harris, nominated Jordon and she said: "Jordon has contributed all of his free time to coach the students and has built up a cricket team from scratch will all his hard work. "With his determination and enthusiasm he has gained several sponsorships.
"Jordon thoroughly deserves this award for the commitment he has shown - he is an asset to both CBA and Corby."
It wasn't the first award Jordon was nominated for this year - he was also shortlisted for the two categories in the Children and Young People's Partnership's awards, for Contributions to the Community and the Volunteer award.
Jordon said: "I do it for the satisfaction of helping others, rather than awards, but it's great to be recognised.
"I want to thank the boys for the hard work over the last two years which led to me getting this award."
