Penistone stumper Duncan Richards, who plies his trade in Section A, was the most successful keeper in the League, winning the Gordon Hinchliffe Trophy with a total of 30 victims, while the H Whittaker Trophies, for the two outstanding performance during the season with bat and ball have gone to Chris Dobson, of Flockton, who smashed an undefeated 214 in the Section D game against Holmbridge, while Green Moor’s Jonathan Haigh bagged the tremendous return of nine for 14 against Calder Grove in a Section C game.
