ANOTHER successful season for the New Norfolk Cricket Club was celebrated at the annual trophy presentation dinner at the New Norfolk District Football Clubrooms.
Among the many trophy winners the highly-regarded favourite, Josh Walsh, was presented with the big award – the Charlie Eiszele Perpetual Trophy for the Best Club Person. Walsh’s contribution to the club is second to none. He is the club’s junior president, a junior coach and a senior player just to name a few of his roles.
Batsman Jordan Willoughby took out the First Grade Club Champion Award (Lyn Harris Memorial Trophy) with 757 points. Willoughby had a fantastic season with the bat making 534 runs, which also saw him take out the batting aggregate award.
Stewart Rice showed age is no barrier, taking out the Third Grade Club Champion Award with 633 points while Nathan Heron took out the same award in Fifth Grade with 625 points. Of the women’s awards, captain Hannah Mann took out the best all-rounder trophy.
In Third Grade, premiership captain Jake “Don Bradman” King had an exceptional season making 509 runs with an outstanding average of 101.80. King guided his team to winning both the T20 and 50-over premierships of which the team won 18 matches from 19 played.
