The trophy for the most outstanding performance of the year was awarded to Mark Thomas for his 4-33 and 99 against Horsford in the East Anglian Premier League.
Thomas’ 99, batting at 9, came from just 79 balls and was a one man assault against the Horsford attack, having arrived at the crease with the scoreboard reading 83-7. His innings included 14 fours and 3 sixes.
Ben Shearing was named the Sunday team player of the year after hitting an important 65 in the last game of the season at home against Anglians – a game which ensured the league title returned to Swardeston. He also hit a brutal 101 not out against Norwich earlier in the season – his first century in senior cricket.
Callum Taylor was the winner of the Neville Herathge Trophy for the outstanding youth player of the year. Callum, 15, scored a fine 60 on his East Anglian Premier League debut, and followed this up with a number of impressive performances over the course of the season.
He also represented London & East in last summer’s Bunbury Festival, and more recently, secured a contract at Essex as part of their Academy set up.
