Cleeve Cricket Club held its end of season awards evening at their St George V Playing Fields pavilion.

To close another enjoyable season, there was one last event at the St George V Playing Fields at Cleeve, where treasurer, committee member and club stalwart John Hance ran through the highs from a promising yet, on occasions, frustrating season.

The first team, led by skipper Glenn Lewin, finished fourth in Division 3 of the Bristol & District League and the seconds, captained by Kelston Crew, maintained their Division 8 status after a frustrating season struggling with availability.

Highlights of the evening included first team all-rounder Mitch Want landing the batting award for an excellent season averaging over 40 and ending as second highest scorer in the league. He was also voted players’ player as well as picking up his framed scorecard for a century.

First team keeper Tom Carpenter was awarded most improved player as well as the John Taylor Fielding Award for the most dismissals, ending top keeper in the league as well as 11th overall in the entire B & D League.

Sam Williams picked up the first team bowling award despite only playing half the league matches due to school cricket commitments, still managing to secure the best average and strike rate.

Veteran Carey Elswood picked up the second team batting award to include a century and regular Dan Dixon the bowling honours. Youngster Louis Ferris picked up the second team young player award.

Non-playing awards went to Ian Wisniewski, John Hance and John Parsons. Mentions were made of plans for the season ahead to include a search for a club coach, player recruitment and celebration plans for what will be the club’s 70th anniversary.

Awards - 1st XI batting: Mitch Want; bowling: Sam Williams. 2nd XI batting: Carey Elswood; bowling: Dan Dixon. 2nd XI young player: Louis Ferris. Bryan Bailey Cup (most improved player): Tom Carpenter. John Taylor Fielding Trophy: Tom Carpenter. Graham Wiltshire non-playing award: Ian Wisniewski. Chairmans Cup: John Hance. Roly Hill (Clubman of the Year): John Parsons.
