16-Year-Old Twins Scoop Awards for Women’s Cricket
16-year-old twins from Coleg Llandrillo took centre stage at Conwy Borough County Council’s annual awards ceremony after their team won a national women’s cricket competition!
Amy – who is 1 minute older - and Hannah Kennedy from Old Colwyn were members of the Colwyn Bay Cricket Club Ladies team which scooped the council’s ‘Women’s Senior Sports Team Award’. This was open to all sports, including women’s rugby and women’s martial arts!
The team came joint top of the North Wales Women's Cricket League and also won the first ever '100 Ball Cup' competition – as the sole representatives from north Wales – which took place at the Vale of Glamorgan cricket ground. Both based at the college’s Rhos-on-Sea campus, Amy is studying Health & Social Care L3, and Hannah, Sport & Exercise Science L3.
At the club presentation night, as well as being part of the team that accepted the main team award, Hannah was awarded two extra trophies: for wicket-taking and most runs scored (in league).
Amy has always wanted to work with children with disabilities, but also has her sights set on a career as a professional cricketer. Hannah would also like to be a professional cricketer or a cricket coach. She said: “I am really enjoying my time at college. The tutors are helpful, lessons are really interesting, and overall, it is a great experience.”
Brother Matt studies Hospitality & Catering at the college, is also a keen cricketer, and was recently capped for successes with a mixed ability cricket team. Last but not least, mum Deb works at the college as an administrative assistant.
