2012 Dumfries CC Award Winners

Scott Beveridge scooped the player awards at the Dumfries Cricket Club Awards Dinner on Saturday.

The all-rounder was presented with the 1st XI Player of the Year award and was also voted by his teammates as the Players’ Player of the Year.

The left arm spinner was the Western Premier League’s second top wicket taker and backed that up with over two hundred and fifty league runs.

After the club’s most successful ever season, as Western Premier League winners, the members of the 1st XI squad were each presented with a special trophy to mark their achievements this summer. Alan Davidson won the Jimmy Steele Bowling Trophy for his match winning performance of 6 wickets for 30 in the final title decider match against rivals West of Scotland.

This week Cricket Scotland also awarded the Nunholm club their Fair Play Award for the 2012 season.

Also picking up trophies were Hugh Farries as the 2nd XI Player of the Year who was the top run scorer after the side finished third in the Reserve League. One of the club’s three century makers this season, Marcus Richardson, was the Young Player of the Year. Kirsty Strachan and Rosy Ryan, who both played for Scotland U17s , won the Women’s awards as Player the Year and the Most Improved Player respectively.
