Dumfries CC Award Winners for 2010

Scotland U19 batsman Tom McBride was named as the 1st XI Player of the Year at the Dumfries Cricket Club Awards Dinner last Saturday. The eighteen year old opener won as a result of being the side’s top run scorer in the league with 547 runs including two centuries, plus a score of 95, and he was the top home grown run scorer in National Division 2.

He came to the fore this season as part of a batting line-up that scored the most runs in the Division and was instrumental in APD Dumfries winning a National League title for the first time.

The award for the Club’s best bowling performance (the Jimmy Steele Trophy) went to his teammate Jerry Goodin for a 5 wicket haul for 35 with his leg-spin against Weirs in a National League match at Nunholm and which contributed to him ending up as the equal second top wicket taker for the side with 21 wickets. The Player’s Player of the Year for the second year running was given by his fellow players to Australian Josh Geary for his 1st XI performances with bat and ball and his team contribution. He was the second top run scorer with an average of 49 and was the top wicket taker with 24 wickets.

The 2nd XI Player of the Year was presented to opener Hugh Farries as the side’s top run scorer in Western Union Division 2 with 525 runs which helped his team to finished fourth in the league. Cameron Telfer was awarded the Dumfries CC’s Young Player of the Year for his wicket taking exploits for the seconds where he was the third top wicket taker and with the best strike rate thanks to his regular habit of immediately taking a wicket when brought on to bowl.
