Merry Christmas in advance to all players, members, supporters and families of Lisburn Cricket Club. We will be holding our annual Xmas quiz on Friday 27 December in the Cecil Walker pavilion, commencing at 7.30pm, with a late bar, drinks promotions and a fun-filled evening of trivia and laughing at answers given by Wonkle.
So get yourselves along to that event.
In other news, the club dinner was recently held. Those members who didn’t prioritise a hockey club quiz were rewarded with an excellent hog roast. The following were the successful prize winners
1st XI: David Simpson (for the 74th time in his career…)
2nd XI: Rick McConkey (hiding on the 2nds worked out well for him)
3rd XI: EK (well deserved, no substitute for experience)
Young Player of the Year: Michael Glass (MG Fitness sales boosted again)
Most Improved Young Player: Josh Gray (slapping his dad, younger brothers and Scotty W about the nets has helped)
Henry McAuley Award for Most Improved Seam Bowler: Ben Moore (practice does make perfect folks, a great attender at nets)
Bertie Kerr Award for effort: Scott Wilson (plenty of guts and determination from the big lad)
Reggie Blair Award for supporter of the year: Trevor McKeown (he MADE it… always on hand to offer “encouragement”)
Ladies Award for clubman of the year: Shirley Simpson and Karen Mulholland (yes, I had to read that twice also, but thoroughly well deserved recording many years of teas of the highest echelons)
