The owners of Dunscar are committed to raising aspiration in the young. To this end they not only employ several young people but carry out a range of activities to support local schools. They also sponsor local youth sport at both Tarleton Rugby Club and Tarleton Cricket Club. This year they went one stage further by purchasing and sponsoring the Dunscar Spirit of Cricket Trophy. Shaun was once a cricket umpire in both the Southport and District League and the Northern League. He thus believes strongly in encouraging the young to follow high standards of fair play, sportsmanship and good behaviour. The prize of £50 was split between Matthew Parkinson, aged 10 and Jack Langton, aged 16, with Matthew also becoming the first winner of the trophy.
