 West Moors Parish Council Winner for Jean Ware (formerly Legacy) Award 2016/17

On Thursday 16th December 2016 prior to the parish council meeting, Callum Crockard aged 16, gratefully and humbly received the 2016/17 Jean Ware (former Legacy) Award. The Chairman of the Council, Cllr Penny Yeo, presented Callum with an engraved glass trophy which he will keep indefinitely to remind him of his achievements. Callum will also be able to claim up to £1,000 to help his progression in his chosen sport. The purpose of The Jean Ware Award is to recognise an exemplary young person that needs extra help to reach their ambition, which encourages good competition, consequently bringing the excellence of our young people to the forefront.
The winning applicant is assessed not just on performance, but on their application and the mental strength that’s required to go on and be the top of the field that they participate in. Callum is currently studying for his GCSE’s for which he is on course for achieving A - A*.
His passion is devoting his time to coach football to young children locally. Callum was recognised at the early age of 7 by Southampton, AFC Bournemouth and Portsmouth football clubs but took roots with AFCB for 6 years learning invaluable understanding of the game. He transferred this knowledge to Brockenhurst FC before focusing on his studies.
For 2 years he has been volunteering with Grange Athletic FC where he has progressed from coaching U10’s to managing all football aspects from training to match day working with U12’s and younger.
Callum’s ultimate goal is to become the world’s most successful professional football manager. He admits this seems like a big dream, but believes that the discipline, drive, determination and dedication he applies, will take him there.
This award will financially support Callum to obtain the necessary qualifications and equipment to further his career, but also assist in providing the local community with his skills and be a shining example to the young ones he coaches. West Moors Parish Council hold the same belief in Callum that he holds in himself and such confidence will only bring his dream closer and no doubt bring pride to all that know him.

The parish council will be inviting applications for the Jean Ware Award from May 2017 with Friday 24th November being the closing date.
