At its Annual Awards ceremony last night, Cardiff and Vale College awarded Glamorgan Cricket with its 2019 Business and Partner Award.
The College teamed up with Glamorgan Cricket with a new Education and Cricket Academy this autumn and a good start has been made with five of its players selected for the Wales U17 Cricket squad: James Archer, Nathan Berry, Ben Davies, Ethan Davies and Scott O’Leary.
The CAVC/Glamorgan Cricket Education and Cricket Academy is part of the College’s growing range of Sport Academies. The academies are designed to provide a supportive and specialist environment that combines first-class coaching and sports facilities with CAVC’s expanding range of courses.
The Academy is open to people who wish to study the BTEC Level 3 at Sophia Gardens and also to CAVC students. They will be coached by Glamorgan's Michael Clayden and taught by former player Adam Harrison who said: “The CAVC/Glamorgan Education and Cricket Academy is an excellent way to develop the students' cricket skills whilst achieving an excellent education at the same time. The opportunity to study and train in a world class test match venue is a unique.
Community manager, Mark Frost, said: "We are delighted to receive this award which is early evidence that the partnership between Glamorgan and CAVC will flourish and offer many exciting experiential opportunities for young people.”
