Tower Hamlets youngsters work at London Youth Games event

Stepney Green Sixth Form students Abul Hasnat and Emad Uddin have been making strides as cricket umpires.

The duo joined other aspiring coaches and umpires at the London Youth Games to learn event rules and regulations in theory and practical sessionns, then stood in the boys’ and girls’ qualifying competitions.

In recognition of their effort and commitment the pair were then invited back to Lord’s for the finals and received certificates to mark their achievements.

A spokesperson said: “Abul and Emad are both actively engaged in the Stepping Stones programme through Tower Hamlets Youth Sport Foundation.

“In half term they attended a Cricket Coach Support Worker Course alongside other young leaders from the borough at Play On Sports in Whitechapel and was delivered in partnership with Middlesex CCC and the LBTH Positive Activities for Young People programme.

“Both students will have the opportunity to continue to develop their umpiring and coaching skills by working with THYSF Cricket Development Officer, Jahid Ahmed, to support cricket programmes across Tower Hamlets.”
