Talented Sporting Youngsters Feature - George Twigg

George TwiggGeorge Twigg hails from Portfield Gate, Haverfordwest and is involved in several sports, although he might list cricket as his favourite since he has played for Haverfordwest as a junior and this season has shown his growing maturity in the game by playing senior cricket for Johnston in the second division of the Pembrokeshire League . . . Hockey is also another sport in which he is playing well . . .

George Twigg celebrates wicket for JohnstonPeople who have helped me in cricket:
My dad Jonathan, Simon Williams & Pembrokeshire/West Wales coaches. Mu mum Suzanne has also been great in taking me to play sport – and never complains!

Proud moments:
Three consecutive Semi-Finals appearances for U15’s/U13’s
In my third game at senior level, with Johnston,  I bowled against Carew 2nds and claimed two wickets for only one run. I also had a three-wicket haul and in local cricket my highest score is 33 – and 53 not out when Ysgol Caer Elin played a team in Cardiff.
Other Sports:
Rugby, football and hockey. I have played prop for the school team in my age group and I used to play football for Prendergast Villa and Llangwm. I started playing hockey in school and now I play in defence or midfield for Pembrokeshire Hockey’s under 16 team. We train once a week and it means a lot of travel to away games in South and Mid Wales, with a few tournaments recently in Llandeilo.

Finley Atyeo and Lee Summons because both are very good sportsmen and enjoy their involvement.

Famous sporting figures like:
Steve Smith (Cricket) – for the way he plays and Tom Brady (American Football) for his success and strong mentality

To become the best player in all sports that I can – and to enjoy being involved!
