< go back to list

Year: 2011
Awarded to: Peter Boyle


Peter joined the Club in 1996 when his eldest son Jamie decided as an 8 year old that he wanted to play cricket and Peter soon became involved in helping to run OE’s junior section. His son is now 1st XI captain at the Club. Peter played for the Club for a number of seasons and helped form the Club’s 4th XI which acted as a stepping stone to juniors trying to break into senior cricket. Peter managed many age groups over the years and guided them to success, winning many County and Midlands Titles. Peter oversaw the formulating and application of a sports match grant which the Club was able to deliver, with structured fitness programme to over 1000 local pupils in 9 separate schools, this was seen as very innovative as it was before chance to shine came about. OE’s junior section has been built up through Peter’s leadership and guidance to one of the top junior sections in the area; numbers have grown to over 200. Over the last few seasons the Club has won over 20 County Titles and reached the last 4 in a National Final in the last 2 seasons. Peter has helped by many dedicated coaches and parents to help make this happen and testament to their success is the fact that 8 of the present Birmingham League 1st XI came through the junior ranks at the Club.
