Awards 2010

by Keith Martin on February 20th, 2011

1st XI Player of the year 2010, Stephen Hanna

Donaghcloney CC  had a successful year in 2010 with the first XI getting promotion to Section one. The first XI only lost 2 games all year and with nearly 30 players togging out for them throughout the year it was a real team effort. Throughout the year two names stood out, that being Neil Carson and Stephen Hanna. Neil averaged nearly 40 with the bat and was the back bone pf the Donaghcloney batting line up. Stephen despite a serious ankle injury which meant he missed 5 games mid season still finished the top wicket taker for the season. Both players also took some memorable catches leading by example in the field and inspiring the rest of the team to produce their best. However their can only be one player of the year and Stephen took the honors.

The Seconds too had a successful year finishing mid table and had several close finishes which if they had gone the other way, things could have been very different. As it was it was a an old head Stephen Lyttle who lead the way with the bat. He batted with authority throughout the season amassing over 400 runs and a top score of 76.

There were many trade mark boundaries but Stephen showed he could bat with patience when the situation needed a steadier approach. His son Richard also starred with the bat scoring his first senior 50 and performed very well behind the stumps improving throughout the season. Stephen and Richard were voted player of the year for the 2nd XI and Under 15’s respectfully.

To round the evening of Keith Martin was awarded club man of the year for his captaincy of the 1st XI and work behind the scenes. Special mention must also go to Raymie Matthews, Stephen Hanna, Keith Ogle and the rest of the committee who gave up many nights to get the ground playable each weekend and keep the club going from strength to strength. Good luck to everyone in 2011 which I’m sure will bring a lot of challenges and will need the collective effort of many within the club to ensure another sucessful year is had.
