"I have know Peter for approx 10 years since my son commenced at the Sorrento Cricket Club as a young 9'year old. During that time Peter has given his time freely and willingly to assist every member of the club, whether junior or senior player and also gone out of his way to make everyone feel included. He is constantly giving advice to players, young and old, and guiding and teaching them techniques to help improve their game, both physically and mentally. As a junior swapping over to the senior competition, he bent over backwards to assist my son with the transition, always making sure he was comfortable both on and off the field and giving him the confidence to face men who were sometimes 15 years his senior! Peter is a credit to the Club and I have no hesitation in recommending him for this award - Melinda Bell"
