Carrie said after her presentation 'Winning this award was so unexpected but it is truly an honour! It's also great recognition for Bude Bay Netball Club and all of our hard working coaches.
After the initial shock of winning Carrie was then surprised again by being nominated for the Netball South West Region Goalden Globe Awards 2015. Held on Sunday 21st June 2015 at Taunton School, Carrie was announced winner of the Grassroots Coach Award.
Carrie now goes forward to compete for the National England Netball Goalden Globes in September 2015 against nominees from the other eight Netball Regions across the country. Good luck Carrie!
Natasha Howard from the Cornwall Sports Partnership said 'this is a fantastic story of a club coach being thanked locally and then going onto national recognition. We would like to see more local volunteers and coaches receiving some reward for all their dedication and hard work making sport in Cornwall happen.'
