Young Club Person Award

< go back to list

Year: 2011
Awarded to: Michael Ceillam

 

Michael is a young man who has progressed through Olton’s youth teams and now plays in the club’s 1st XI as opening bat.

 

Michael has just had his 23rd birthday in September 2011 and whilst most of his activities connected with the club have been as a player and vice-captain of our 1st XI he has been our treasurer for two years.

 

Whilst this may not seem a long time, to take on such an important role at the age of 21 was highly commendable.

 

In his first year as treasurer he established our monthly 100 club draw and now organises the monthly draws and collection of fees. This revenue stream is extremely beneficial to us.

 

In this season as well as maintaining that draw, he has organised a whole host of match day raffles and events which have also raised funds for us. With another member of the club he also organised a very successful match day barbecue.

 

Finally, this year a new Annual Dinner organiser came forward and Michael joined his team to help organise that event and to take charge of ticket sales and finding auction prizes.

 

So although Michael has only been involved behind the scenes for two years he has now become a very important member on the club’s committee
