ADRIAN WILFORD and Richard Greaves have scooped the top two trophies in the Arrow Huddersfield Central Cricket League’s Premier Division.
Wilford won the batting prize with an average of 51.22, while Greaves claimed the bowling prize, having taken 41 wickets at an average of 10.61, which, not surprisingly, combined to steer their club, Cawthorne, to the League Championship.
England Deaf international bowler Darrell Sykes, formerly with Hall Bower, took by far the most wickets in the entire League, a total of 68, which won him by the Section A bowling award.
Cartworth Moor were also well represented in the list of prizewinners, with Graham Halstead yet again lifting the wicketkeeping trophy in Section B and Scott Bissett the batting trophy.
And one of their up-and-coming young all-rounders Tom Chadwick took the catching prize for the Division, and the Trevor Willerton Trophy for the most catches in the entire League.
But he was also voted the League’s top-rated Under 21 performer throughout the season, which won him the Brian Hopton Trophy, having scored the most runs in the section, 794 (ave 52.93) and taken 44 wickets (ave 10.55), of which 19 were bowled, to go alongside his catching prize.
