From the Pitch to the Podium: Asa Tribe wins Sure Rising Star Award

Asa Tribe wins Sure Rising Star Award

We are excited to announce the recipient of the Sure Rising Star Award in the Betway Channel Islands Sports Awards 2023 – none other than the talented cricketer, Asa Tribe. The award, sponsored by Sure, aims to recognise and support young athletes who demonstrate exceptional potential and dedication in their chosen sport across the Channel Islands.

Jersey’s Asa Tribe has had an outstanding year. Notably, he secured his maiden one-day international hundred for Jersey, showcasing his batting prowess and skill. Asa achieved the same milestone twice for Glamorgan's second team, further solidifying his status as a rising star in the cricketing world.

Although Asa was unable to attend the ceremony, his father Mark graciously accepted the award on his behalf, describing it as "wonderful" and a testament to Asa's hard work and dedication.

Mike Fawkner-Corbett, Head of Consumer, who presented the award, said: “We are proud to sponsor the Rising Star Award, as sport has an incredible power to connect people; this award reflects our commitment to nurturing young talent and promoting sports excellence in the Channel Islands. The award not only celebrates past achievements but also invests in the future success of young athletes.

“Congratulations to all the nominees for landmark years in their years, and especially to Asa. We look forward to witnessing his continued growth and success in the world of cricket and beyond.”
