Yarmouth cricketers steal the show
Yarmouth area cricketers stole the show at the the 40th anniversary Lucas Fettes Norfolk Cricket League presentation dinner at the Mercure Hotel, Norwich.
Over 180 cricketers, partners and officials enjoyed a convivial evening hosted by the NCL executive committee and the sponsors of the league, independent financial advisers and insurance brokers Lucas Fettes & Partners.
The evening commenced with league vice-chairman Jon Cooke welcoming everybodyand thanking the sponsors, Lucas Fettes & Partners, for their continued support and involvement throughout the fourth year of their sponsorship agreement.
The East Coast managed a clean sweep of the top individual senior awards, with the President's Awards (provided and presented by NCL President Tom Bartram).
Freescoring Steven Hak of Great Yarmouth was Overall Batsman of the Year (660 runs av 55); Paul Vickers of Great Yarmouth (Overall Bowler of the Year); Simeon Randell of Martham (Overall All-Rounder of the Year) and Alex Chaney of Rollesby (Overall Wicket-Keeper of the Year).
In many respects Simeon Randell was the star of the evening, and as well as the Overall All-Rounder of the Year trophy he also received the Division Three Bowling Award and the U19 Bowler of the Year award and was a close contender for the Overall Bowler of the Year award.
The Tony Gregory Spirit of Cricket Award – presented to the team recording the highest average spirit of cricket score per game across the entire season – was awarded to Bungay A from Division Three, with Ketteringham Hall A finishing second and Lowestoft C in third.
