Chloe Greechan said it is a ‘privilege’ to have won the Women’s Cricketer of the Year award for the second year running.
Asa Tribe also retained the top men’s prize at the Jersey Cricket Awards on Friday night.
The nominations were not lost on either of the duo, who both were very grateful to be named the winners in a vast cricket talent pool we have on the Island.
Greechan said: ‘It is such an honour to receive this award for the second year on the trot.
‘It’s a privilege really, because as Jersey captain, all I’ve wanted to do is be a role model for our youngsters coming through.
‘It is not an easy award to win. We have so many talented players in the side, so to retain the award among so many great players feels very special.
‘It is an exciting time to be a woman in sport and local sport especially.
‘Our Island’s governing bodies have pushed very hard to increase participation in sport among women and I think everyone can see how much it has helped at a local level.
‘We are benefitting from every female athlete before us, that paved the way and refused to settle to be second best to men and it is just a very exciting time for us in sport.
‘I have to praise the work that Jersey Cricket have done also.
‘We are so strong across the different teams now and it is a credit to the time and effort the coaches and everyone associated with the sport have put in.’
Similarly to Greechan, Tribe has secured his second Player of the Year award in as many years.
The batsman has been part of the fabric for Jersey Cricket during their steep rise in the past couple of seasons, and a strong showing in the home stand of the ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League B fixtures, helped the Caesareans to a group win that was three years in the making.
The former De La Salle student is now studying at Cardiff Metropolitan University, where he is in the process of attaining selection to the Cardiff UCCE squad, who were BUCS Sport champions in 2021.
He said: ‘I couldn’t been there on the night, but my Dad was and I was delighted when he told me.
‘It’s a special feeling to win this award two years on the bounce when we have so many talented players over here.
‘Charlie Brennan’s stats this season in local cricket have been outstanding, there were so many people that could have been chosen.
‘I also wasn’t in Uganda with the team during their clean sweep in the Challenge League, so it shows how much strength we have and to be named the winner two years in a row is very special.’
Brennan, who’s outstanding year was highlighted by Tribe, deservedly won the Jersey Evening Post Young Player of the Year award.
The multitalented teenager has broken through into the senior side, in a year that also saw him captain Jersey in the U18 Muratti in their win over Guernsey.
