2011 Dumfries CC Club Award Winners

Scott Beveridge deservedly claimed the Player of the Year award at the recent Dumfries Cricket Club Awards night.

He won the award for first eleven player of the year for his performances with both bat, ball and in the field. He was also the winner of the Players’ Player of the Year from player votes cast throughout the season.

His performances helped APD Dumfries win the Scottish Championship and to win the SCU Trophy Cup competition, both for the first time. He was the side’s in-form batsman as the top Dumfries run scorer in the league with an average of forty four including four fifties. He was also the top wicket taker with eighteen wickets after bowling the most overs for the side. Importantly for the side his best ever club figures of 6 for 22 enabled Dumfries to recover to beat Kelburne and stay in contention for the title and, in the field, he somehow also managed to snap up the most catches.

The winner of the Second Eleven Player of the Year was Captain Stuart Alexander for leading the Nunholm bowling attack and steering what was at times a young side in the first year in the West SNCL Reserve League where the side finished mid table. Keeping the trophies in the family was Niall Alexander who was awarded Young Player of the Year for his quick bowling for the seconds, firsts, West U15s and in particular for Scotland U15s.

The Jimmy Steele Award for the season’s best bowling performance was won by young Cameron Telfer for remarkable figures of 7 for 23 for the seconds in their away match at Langloan and in its inaugural year the award for Women’s Player of the Year went to teenager Kirsty Strachan.

Meanwhile, on Friday November the 25th the Club will hold its AGM at Nunholm at 7pm.
