Annerville Award for Aaron Cawley

cawley-1Sixteen year old Cricketer Aaron Cawley from the Horse and Jockey, Thurles, described as a ‘great honour’ his receipt of the Annerville Award at the Clonmel Park Hotel on Saturday evening last. The award recognised his outstanding contribution to his sport in 2015 and indeed previous years.

Aaron, who is currently a T.Y student in Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed, here in Thurles, had a most remarkable year in his sport. Last year (2015) saw him play against World Cup team Oman with both his club, Cork County and his Province, where he took 6 wickets, helping to bring both games down to the wire.

In August, Aaron played with Ireland U15’s in the European Championships, held in Rugby, England, against teams from Scotland, Holland, Denmark, Jersey and Guernsey. Ireland won the tournament outright without losing a game to retain their title. He was one of the top wicket takers in this series.

Aaron plays his youth cricket for Pembroke CC in Dublin. He played in the All-Ireland U15’s final in Derry against local team Bready, which Pembroke won decisively. He took four wickets in the game with one of the best bowling displays seen for some time at this age level.

Aaron plays Division 1 league cricket with Cork County 1st’s and received the ‘Young Player of the Year’ award for 2015. He will open the bowling for the 1st’s in the upcoming 2016 season in both the Munster and Leinster leagues and due to Aaron’s performances throughout 2015, he has been selected as part of the Ireland U17’s winter training squad, which is currently ongoing in North County, Dublin.

Congratulations Aaron and every success into the future.
