EXMOUTH Cricket Club staged their 2009 Awards Evening at the Royal Beacon Hotel, Exmouth, last weekend.
It turned out to be a wonderful evening attended by one of the largest gatherings for such an event in recent seasons.
Anne Nightingale of the Royal Beacon Hotel and both Gary Rice and Kevin Smith of CAP the Exmouth CC sponsors, handed out the awards.
The main award of the evening, to the 1st XI Player of the Year, was presented to David Lye for a magnificent first season at the Maer ground following his arrival from Sandford.
Harrison Folland was one young player who went home with a couple of trophies.
He was presented, by Anne Nightingale, with the Colts Under-15 Cup and also received the Bradley's East Devon Youth League's Batting Cup, a trophy he had not been able to collect at the Youth Awards evening.
The Ladies XI were well represented on the evening with the principle awards being claimed by Anita Bolt and Lucy Burch.
Anita took the Lady Batsman honour and Lucy won the Bowling award.
Annie Blong, who made such a splendid job of organising the whole event, was presented with a bouquet of flowers.
Club Chairman Peter Langford said: "It really was a most enjoyable evening. The Royal Beacon looked after us wonderfully and we are very grateful to them for that and it was so nice to see so many people attending the awards. I was personally delighted to see Kevin and Gary (Kevin Smith and Gary Rice of sponsors CAP) on the evening."
