The club held a successful dog race night/presentation evening at Whitehills Golf Club at the beginning of October.

The Chairman thanked Keith & Posy Williams for the use of the field, Keith Smith for cutting the outfield and Boycie for his continued work on the square. Thanks also went to Dave Monk for running the website and Chris for all his fantastic pictures and general help on match days, particularly with scoring. Peter continued by thanking Carol for doing the admin, and a special thanks for Ahmed’s end of season curry evening. Obviously, it is a team effort and everyone does something – so thanks to all.

Awards were presented as follows:

Most Improved Player – Phippsy

Catching Cup – Ashley

Duck Cup – Ahmed, Dave P, Burly

5 For – Nihal, Burly

A newly donated cup for bowling – Burly

Centuries were scored by Ashley, Rizwan and Simon, and Simon received a tankard for scoring 2 centuries

The Pearman Cup for the Champagne Moment – Dave B for the “vicar’s wife incident” at Takeley

And – voted for by all club members:

Player of the Year was a tie between Ashley and Dave B, and

Clubman of the Year – unanimously Chris Jones.

A successful fund raising event tied in with our presentation evening, thanks go to Burly and his contacts for the organisation.

The HECL presentation dinner at the end of October was attended by about half a dozen representatives from LMCC, who were runners up and gained promotion to Division 4 this year. Simon was also awarded the cup for the most runs scored in Division 5.

Next event will be the club AGM, which follows the HECL AGM and usually takes place end of November – details to follow.
