Haddenham Cricket Club salutes 2019
- Cricket World Cup features at HCC awards ceremony
- 1st XI promoted to Premier Division 2
- Haddenham has an OSCA winner
Haddenham Cricket Club held an awards ceremony at the Youth Centre last night. Positioned as a backdrop to the annual awards for best bowling and batting performance for all junior age groups and senior teams was the Cricket 2019 World Cup.
Club Chairman Richard Moore commented that a 'Special Guest' had been promised by Scott Smith who when he is not skippering the Sunday XI or leading the 'All Stars junior cricket programme, has a senior role with the ECB at Lords. It was a privilege to be able to acknowledge the fine performance of all the club's players in the presence of the world's most coveted cricketing prize.
During the course of the season the 1st XI had won 11 of its scheduled 18 fixtures and earned promotion to the next division up in the Kookaburra Mid Bucks league.
Holly Zijderveld has won the Bucks nomination as Young Volunteer of the Year in an annual competition known as the OSCAs — Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards. She will be invited to attend the final at Lords on 14 October. Who knows Haddenham may have its very own OSCA winner?
2019 has been a season of record breaking partnerships, extraordinary temperatures and success both on and off the field of play. Thanks and recognition are due to the army of volunteers at all levels of the club and the enthusiasm and determination of the players.
