Awards Winners 2019
Congratulations to all the Winners of the various Club Awards that were presented at the Annual Dinner on Saturday.
Reed Cricket Club celebrated its most significant season in their history on Saturday at their Annual Awards Presentation Dinner held at the Old Bull Inn, Royston. Having already seen the Second XI head Division 4B in the Hertfordshire League with a more than comfortable 35-point margin the 1st XI had a momentous weekend the following week with a triumphant play-off match to achieve promotion to the Herts Premier League for the first time followed by their third victory in the National Village Cup sponsored by The Cricketer Magazine and hosted by MCC at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground.
The Club’s Captains distributed Trophies to the various individuals who had contributed worthy performances during the season and to other Club members who consistently carry-out largely unnoticed “behind the scenes” tasks.
Club Chairman Stuart Smith congratulated the winners as well as thanking all the players who had represented Reed in this fantastic year. He said that performances across the board were greatly improved but the Club should not rest on its laurels. RCC should be encouraging more playing and social members and to bridge the gap by introducing more Colts into Open-Age weekend cricket and to involve their parents in the Club’s activities. Stuart concluded by saying how very proud he was to be Chairman of Reed at this exciting time in its history as the players look forward to next season’s challenges.
This year’s winners are listed below. To see previous winners, (going back decades in some cases), look at the “History” pages on this website. The background explanations for the particular award are included.
