Clive was nominated for coaching the Combat Wombats since the team were five, always going above and beyond to support and encourage them and giving up so much of his free time to coach them.
On winning, he said: “The most moving part was the team’s reaction and the parents’ kind words.”
The Combat Wombats winning solution that resulted in them being the winners of the England Wales final was an innovative idea of a kerbside tunnel system that could be made from recycled materials, allowing automated delivery trucks to securely drop off parcels to reduce the environmental impact of the tricky ‘last mile’ in logistics.
“The children have worked extremely hard on their project and Lego robot design in their weekly after-school club. I am very proud of the way this very young team performed at both the regional heats and the national final, showcasing their skills among the many other strong teams taking part”, said Clive.
