Cardiff schoolgirl Ellie Glastonbury has been revealed as a finalist in the 2013 Wales Sport Awards’ Young Coach of the Year category.

The 18-year-old was nominated by her cheerleading academy Central Explosion, and will be up against two other finalists at the awards on 9 December.

Admitting she had no idea she was nominated until the finalists were announced last month, Ellie said,  “I’m really looking forward to the awards evening, especially with huge stars there like Warren Gatland, I’m hoping to score my athletes a contract to perform at some of his games.”

Sport Wales has joined forces with BBC Cymru Wales to host the annual event, which will be held at the Sport Wales National Centre in Sophia Gardens.
