Young cricketer Matthew Collum’s fine season for Bready was recognised as he picked up two awards at the club’s youth awards night.

Matthew picked up the Under 15 Batsman of the Year and the Under 15 Player of the Year awards, following a good campaign with both bat and ball. This follows on from having won the U-15 Bowler of the Year the previous season.

All rounder Matthew also represented the North West Cricket Union Under 15 team and played for the Bready Men’s 2nd Team that won the league and were runner-up in the Irish Plate.

And he topped off a fantastic season by being selected to participate in the Irish U-15 training camps.

Devenish College student Matthew now trains with the North West Under 17 Inter-Provincial squad in Bready every weekend.
