Tulgeen Twilight Cricket has just completed their 9th season of playing cricket this year and held their annual presentation awards night recently in the Hilton Room at Insync. The awards night is always an eagerly anticipated event for our cricketers following the completion of the season’s matches. The athletes enjoyed drinks and nibblies while mingling with their teammates,parents,volunteers,carers and guests.
The awards and trophy presentation followed and was an opportunity to celebrate the sporting achievements of all of the team and enjoy some of the lighter moments of the season via some carefully constructed and ever popular “novelty awards” of which the Biggest Dummy Spit Award was conspicuously and some might even say, miraculously absent for the very first time this year.
It was very encouraging to see a former Biggest Dummy Spit Award winner (Ashley Irvin) take out the major Stephanie Dyson Perpetual Trophy for playing cricket in the true spirit of the game. Congratulations Ashley!
Other major award winners were Gavin Irvin who dominated by picking up all three bowling awards and Chris Fulljames who won the batting average and aggregate trophies.
Ashley Irvin took the Classic Catch and Sean Cousins won the Allrounder of the Year Award and Best Fielder Trophies.
Corni Moon was the Most Improved player trophy winner this year. This award will be renamed the Susan Harrison Memorial Trophy in memory of our former team member who sadly passed away late last year after a year long battle with cancer. This announcement was greeted with approval via a warm round of applause from all present.
Special thanks go to our Executive Officer Peter Gorton who agreed to present the trophies on the night and did so with much aplomb. All of our cricketers received an award and we would like to congratulate them on a great season of cricket and look forward to the return of daylight saving that will herald the commencement of the new cricket season.
