End of season awards 2012

End of season awards 2012

Coleshill Cricket Club celebrated their successful season with an equally successful drink-a-thon at Chartridge on Saturday night – not to mention the handing out of the annual awards.

The 1st XI Batsman of the Year award went to none other than Dominic Spencer, who recovered from a woeful start to the season to pip his skipper to the coveted prize. Big Dom also picked up the Player of the Year gong.

The 1st XI Bowler of the Year award went to another latecomer to the summer party, Mike Scott, whose jug-avoiding four-fors were integral to Coleshill’s title triumph.

Scotty is all smiles

In the 2s, it was Stuart Watson who picked up the 2nd XI Batsman of the Year gong for a season during which he proved incredibly hard to dismiss and was the glue in the middle order on many occasions.

Best batsman? Elementary, my dear…

Meanwhile, rising star Chris Edwards helped himself to the 2nd XI Bowler of the Year award for another promising summer with the ball, showcasing his skills of seam and spin.

Another year, another award

Two other awards to be dished out both went to Jimmy Amar. The Champagne Moment of 2012 for his gravity-defying catch at Little Kingshill, and also the Lambrini Moment of 2012 for his embarrassing drop at Amersham Hill – which resulted in him rupturing his cruciate ligament and cartilage. Reports that he dropped both awards on his way home are yet to be confirmed.

Catches win matches. Drops hurt.

A special mention goes to Dan Stay, who scored his maiden league century this summer, sharing in that memorable, unbeaten opening partnership with Dom of 301.

The first of many…

And finally, well done to 1st XI captain Simon Pottinger who notched the Highest Score of 2012.


Camp. As. Christmas.
