We held our annual awards evening at King George’s Field on 21 October. The participants enjoyed a range of curries to suit every palate, which was topped off with some very tasty cakes.
Our thanks go to Ian Fisher for compiling the very necessary statistics for the season. He had to be pretty inventive to track down all the data, as the scorebook is not always completed in the most helpful way. For example, A N Other took 15 catches and made 3 stumpings!
The 2011 Award Winners
Most Runs: P. Kumar (965)
Prash was our most involved player, playing 36 matches. In addition to a prolific batting performance he often took the gloves on a Sunday and also had a go at leg spin taking 20 wickets.
Highest Innings: P. Kumar (140 not out)
This is an innings that Prash will remember for a long time. Not one chance was on offer which reflects immense concentration and stamina.
Best Batting Average: Nigel Field (63.67)
For the second year in a row Nigel has taken thebatting average. This reflects his ability to stay concentrated no matter what is going on around him.
Bowling, Most Wickets: Ali (38)
Ali is our regular opening bowler and, with 32 matches, also one of our most involved players. He bowled some very good deliveries and is on the upward momentum.
Best Bowling in a Match: Derrick Randall (6 for 25)
Del is our Sunday skipper and most senior player. He used to open the batting (see the Duck Cup) but has found a new lease of life with the ball.
Best Bowling Average: Derrick Randall (12.33)
With 33 wickets, Del was not far off completing the bowling treble.
Best Young Player: Will Voaden
Will joined us this year and made an impact with both the bat and the ball.
Most Improved Player: Armando Borges
Armando puts in a tremendous effort on the field, epitomised in his last game of the season. Fielding at fine leg he dived full stretch for a catch, missing the catch but saving two runs. An X-ray the following day revealed a broken finger!
Best Fielder: Zeeshan
Zeeshan is consistently our most effective fielder, often hitting the stumps from the out-field.
Players’ Player: P. Kumar
The award is done on a vote from the players and therefore reflects the popularity Prash has with his teammates.
Duck Cup: Derrick Randall
There were three players tied on three ducks so on a count back, with two golden ducks, Del won.
Outstanding Contribution to the Club: Tansy Peters
Tansy did the biggest number of teas, often filling in at short notice. She was delighted to win her first ever “sporting” trophy.
The awards evening had an array of valuable raffle prizes including £50 dinner vouchers from The Black Horse Pub, Fulmer and The Crown, Chalfont St Giles, £30 voucher from Sports Direct, a golf hamper, Bollinger champagne, wine and vodka. Our thanks go to The Black Horse and The Crown for their generous support and also to the Committee members and Prash for their generosity.
