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.

Joe has settled into college life and Strode have been very supportive with balancing his studies and training programme by offering time in the gym and sports hall which is working well.  

Brodie Williams was crowned TS5C’s Young Sports Achiever of the Year Award at this year’s Somerset Activity & Sports Awards.

19 year old Brodie is part of the Millfield School training programme, the same programme that Olympic medallist and World Champion James Guy undertook, and is coached by former international swimmer Euan Dale.

Last weekend saw the start of the new handball season and not only a step up to under 19s and men's handball, but a new team to get used to as I am now playing for Stroud. 

I was looking forward to the increased phyisical and stamina demands as the games are 60 minutes as opposed to 40 minutes at under 16 level. 

After a successful, but exhausting 5 day tournament in Viborg, Denmark at the beginning of August with The England Lions Under 16 Handball Team, my pre season training has been combined with working at 1610 Glastonbury Leisure Centre as an Activities Assistant.

Sixteen year old, TS5C supported athlete, Joe Nelson from Walton has just returned from Viborg in Denmark where he competed in the Generation Cup Handball Tournament.

Aspiring handball player, 16 year old Joe Nelson from Walton has booked a seat to Denmark in August to compete in The Generation Cup as part of a 16 strong England Handball Futures Programme.
