Celebrating Our Sponsored Athletes

Cedar Hall Clinics Thurrock & Benfleet are now into the 5th year of sponsoring local young athletes – helping them to achieve their goals. Starting back in 2011 with just 1 athlete the figure has now soared to 12 – all receiving free treatments, advice and encouragement. To date directors Sara Lovett & Jacki Milne have given over £50,000 in treatment sponsorship. We are proud of our work within the community and are happy to celebrate our rising athletic stars. Here’s our current Sponsorship Team:sport-sponsorship-team

The Hard Battle Back to the Top – an Athlete’s Tale

I believe athletics is much more about the mental game than it is the physical. You could be the fastest runner in the world but if you don’t believe in yourself you will not get anywhere. If you haven’t got the mental stability to be the best, it will never happen.

This is a problem which I have come across the past year or so. I lost all belief in my talent and was on the verge of giving upRobbie Clarricoats in action athletics. After long hard thoughts and talks with my parents, coach and mentors at Cedar Hall my mind set has changed again and I’m back! I haven’t competed this year due to the lack of training and self-belief but I am now back training to get in the best possible shape for next season and to make sure I am back racing with the best hurdlers in the country and hopefully the World one day.

Since starting my athletics career in 2009 I have had much success on the track. Starting in 2012 where I managed to get myself an England kit and an International medal. After this achievement the hard work started, it wasn’t just for fun anymore it was for real. Every athlete who was near the top of the rankings, including me, were all training 110% to be the best.  2013 was the season I become part of Team Cedar Hall, This season went just as planned, I medalled at the English schools and had high hopes for the oncoming season.

At the end of the 2013 season I decided to change coach, which was the best thing I could have done at this stage of my career, still young and still lots more to learn. My pre-season training went really well and I was in great shape for the 2014 season, however race after race it just wasn’t happening. My hurdling would go perfect in training and then terrible in my races. This is what affected me mentally.

The indoor season was best forgotten and I tried to concentrate on the outdoor season, After the few months out thinking about what I really wanted I decided I really want to become one of the best, so I got back into training. With a good mentality back going into training for the indoor season I picked up an injury which knocked me down again. Having recovered fully from my injury and now getting back into training with the right frame of mind,  I look forward to turning my athletics career back into a successful career and push on to be the athlete I aspire be. 

Without the help of Cedar Hall I would not be the person or athlete I am today and hopefully from now on there will be many successful years to come.

Cedar Hall Clinic Athlete Sponsorship Programme

Cedar Hall Clinics in Benfleet and Thurrock leads the way in offering treatment sponsorships to up and coming local young athletes. The Athlete Sponsorship Programme was the brainchild of clinic directors Sara Lovett & Jacki Milne, both involved in various sporting activities from an early age.

Knowing from their own experiences the lack of quality treatment support to young athletes, Sara & Jacki with the help of Essex Athletic Network chose English Schools Champion Georgia Atkins, as the first recipient of a treatment sponsorship. Now nearly 18 months on, five more full treatment sponsorships have been awarded to young potential Olympians.

Gianni Frankis, coached by former Olympian Tony Jarrett, is probably the most high profile athlete to be awarded a treatment sponsorship. This exciting young hurdler, is a potential selection for London 2012 and is currently working hard to recover from a hamstring injury to achieve his goal. Another member of our Athlete Sponsorship Programme is 17yr old Hayley McLean, a 400m hurdler with a stack of titles to her name. She has been invited to compete at the Olympic Stadium this May in the British Universities & Colleges Sport event. A huge honour and a challenge she relishes. Hayley is a member of Chelmsford AC and is coached by Steve Mitchell.

Talented all rounder Joahua Olawore, coached by Tony Benton and Trevor Wells, has great potential. He was awarded the Young Sports Personality of the Year at the Essex Sports Awards in November 2011. He followed this in December with the U18 individual title at Schools International Pentathlon, Kelvin Hall, Glasgow – leading England to victory! Cedar Hall Clinic is proud to sponsor this young athlete.

Our youngest recipient of a sponsorship is 16 yr old Sophie Riches, an exciting prospect and excellent athlete. Sophie ran 4m 37.20s recently to win the under-20 women’s 1,500m at Chelmsford in what was the fastest time run outside by an under-17 athlete this year. She  will be competing at the UK School Games at the Olympic Stadium on May 9 and has been selected as a torch bearer for 2012. Sophie is coached by Christian Dailly.

Twenty year old Dale Clutterbuck is the latest welcome addition to our Athlete Sponsorship Programme. A middle distance runner, Dale is a member of Basildon AC and is coached by former Olympian and Commonwealth gold medallist Rob Denmark. In summer of 2011 Dale achieved PB’s in 800m, 1500m & 3000m winning the Essex Championships. His long term goal is Olympics 2016 in Rio.

The sponsorships cover all aspects of the athletes therapeutic needs as they work towards achieveing their sporting goals, including regular maintenance massage with our sports injuries and rehabilitation specialists. This assists recovery from ever increasing training loads and allows the athlete to stay injury free and continue to compete at high levels. Osteopathy & podiatry treatment and advice are always available when needed.
