The award winners at Dumfries Cricket Club for the 2023 season for Junior & Young Player of the Year, U13s, W&G and the Sunday XI were celebrated at a presentation at our Club Fun Day on Sunday.
The award for Junior Player of the Year was presented to twelve-year-old Cory Dawson and the Young Player of the Year was awarded to fourteen-year-old Nairn Cubbon.
After a good season for the U13s team as a whole, which included winning a first Cumbria Cup trophy, Cory was also prominent amongst the Under-13s award winners where he shared the bowling prize for Most Wickets with Isaac Ishmael. Danny Allsop received the trophy for the Best Bowling Average and Lachlan Osmond had the Best Batting Average. That award was shared with Cory who also was the U13s Top Run Scorer. Macey Corbett-Byers, who also performed well with the U13s team, received the Women and Girls Cup for the most improved female player at the club.
Nairn Cubbon was also a trophy winner in the Sunday Development XI awards with the side's bowling award for Best Average which followed on from his season's best bowling figures in the final game with 5 wickets for 19. Adam Malik was prolific with the bat with 374 runs as the side's Top Run Scorer and also won the Best Average award after not being dismissed at all. Spinner Harith Hassan retained his trophy from last season as the side's Top Wicket Taker with eleven wickets.
