Hundreds Celebrate End of Fabulous Season
Three Gordon Juniors were honoured as an action-packed Presentation Day brought a successful 2015/16 season to a close.
In front of hundreds of young cricketers and their families, Will Stanley, Josh Brayshaw and Cedar Barry picked up the major club awards.
Will - who plays for both U11 Gold and U12 Red - was named Player of the Season. Will scored a total of 436 runs at an average of 33.5 and took 14 wickets at an average of 14.8 for both teams.
Cedar Barry - U10 Orange - received the Special Performance Award. His enthusiasm, encouragement and sporting competitiveness helped to bind a team of boys who had never really met each other at the start of the year and were a collection of kids from different schools. Cedar top scored in Gordon’s semi-final with 20 not out - most importantly scoring runs when his team needed them the most. Cedar reflects what Gordon Junior cricket is about - mateship, teamwork, support and encouragement for all his teammates and respect for his opposition.
Josh Brayshaw - from the U12 Gold team - received the Kingsgrove Sports Promising Player of the Year Award. Josh scored 264 runs at an average of 52.8 and took 18 wickets at an average of 8.9.
Thank you to all who turned out at Chatswood Oval. We look forward to seeing you all again for the 2016/17 season.
