OFFENHAM Cricket Club held their annual junior single wicket tournament and awards night.

It rounded off a successful sixth season for the squad who finished second in the Cotswold Hills League at under 15s level, winning five of their six league matches.

Offenham then progressed to the semi-finals where they went close to an upset against Earlswood Eagles, losing by just 14 runs.

Tom Bailey was the outstanding performer of the season, finishing top of the bowling averages and winning the players’ player of the year award.

Bailey also finished with a batting average of 225, having scored four half-centuries and only been dismissed once in six innings.

On the night Ollie Moore triumphed in the single wicket trophy tournament and Tom Day in the plate tournament.

William Smith was awarded the coach’s player of the year for his consistent performances over the last six years where he has been a near ever-present.

He has also supported the club’s fundraising efforts and broken through to be  a crucial member of the senior squad this season.

Coach Gordon Smith said: “We are a small and happy club with very limited facilities.

“We only had nine boys in the squad yet we never failed to field a side for any fixture.

“It must be said each and everyone is a great credit to their parents. They have been a delight to work with.

“It is also great to once again see how much improved everyone is this season and that many of them are now breaking into our senior side.”
