During the presentations, special awards were presented to three players from each team for special achievements across all matches played on the day.

All our boys were terrific in the way they represented themselves and the club through out the whole day. Over all, it was a well organised day which will only get better. Excellent work by Damien West and the Glenorchy Cricket Club’s senior players and officials.
