Jones is East Midlands' Unsung Sports Hero

Roger Jones has been honoured for being the backbone of Clifton Cricket Club, in South Derbyshire, for more than 40 years.

The result was revealed at the BBC East Midlands Sports Awards 2009 which were held at Loughborough University on Thursday 3 December 2009.

For the past 43 years, Roger has coached and inspired young cricketers, maintained the grounds, made the tea and raised funds at the club he is passionate about.

Roger's ambition is to see at least one of the youngsters play for Derbyshire and, hopefully, England.
