Absolutely thrilled that SwardestonCC legend and club captain Peter Thomas has received a British Empire Medal in the New Year’s Honours List. His award is for grassroots cricket.
Peter told the EDP he was “very humbled” to receive the medal, in a year in which the village club brought two national titles home to Norfolk.
He said: “I just could not believe it when I received the letter telling me. Of course it’s a huge honour and I am humbled, but it isn’t all about me.
“I don’t do what I do for awards, I do it for a love of cricket and there are so many other people who have worked tirelessly from day one – people like Pat Hall.”
Peter os also chairman of the Cecil Amey Norfolk Cricket Alliance.
