TS5C Sponsored Athlete
The flagship fund has already benefited over 130 young athletes from Somerset in a variety of sports. TS5C sponsored athletes have already achieved significant results at both County and National level, and have competed for Team GB in international competitions.

Thought you might like a quick update on Corey's progress with a link to an article featured in Saturday's The Guardian (colour magazine supplement) of Corey and his love of trampolining!

Corey was asked by Paul Greaves, Master Coach to Bryony Page who is Great Britains first ever silver Olympic medalist in trampolining, fresh back from competing in Rio, if he would like to take part. He said that he felt Corey would be a great ambassador for the sport and I think he's done him proud!!

He took part in a 40 minute telephone interview followed by a full on photo shoot with Fabio De Paulo, an internationally freelance photographer at Quayside Trampoline & Gymnastics Club in Bridgwater where he trains.

The last 9 months since he fractured his navicular bone in his right foot have been a challenge and all thanks need to go to his personal coach Sue Bramble and the team at The English Institute of Sport and British Gymnastics who have been looking after his recovery; he's on the home stretch now and looking forward to the future!

Corey is now half way through his 12 week rehab programme on the actual trampoline and is slowly progressing back to full fitness ready for the 2017 competition season. 

There is a possibility he will be competing in Japan at the Kawasaki Cup just before Christmas but if he's not ready by then there are further exciting things ahead with World Age Group trials for 2017 and also for the Youth Olympics in 2018.

Year 11 brings GCSE's and an increased workload and pressure from school but in Coreys words "I've got through eleven years of schooling to get to this point with my grades and I'm certainly not giving up now!!" 

Many thanks for your continued support and I'll keep you updated as to Japan in a few weeks time!
