New Norfolk Cricket Club trophy night

Thanks to Anita Vagg for this photo of the New Norfolk I
players at the cricket club's trophy night.
MORE than 40 members, partners, family and life members attended the recent New Norfolk Cricket Club dinner and trophy night for the 2013/14 season at the New Norfolk District Football Clubrooms. It was a very successful season for the Red Caps, with New Norfolk I winning the SCA 2nd Grade Premiership and New Norfolk II just missing out on the finals in 5th Grade.

When the trophies were presented it was no surprise that the star all-rounder Stewart Rice would collect a bag full. Rice has served the club for more than 20 seasons and had a stellar season to say the least, winning just about every award before him including the premiership - which I'm sure was by far the best award. Another player to also collect a swag of trophies was Leigh Berry who won many awards including the 5th Grade club champion. Well done Leigh.

During the presentations, Life Membership was bestowed on Daniel Vagg and Ashley Morgan. These two players have given great service to the club over many seasons and thoroughly deserve this award. Well done guys.

During the night the club sold some 25 bottles of port to commemorate the premiership won by New Norfolk I. I'm told there will be more made up to sell during the next season. The club thanks its sponsors, DRV Welding and Fabrications, Banjos New Norfolk, Schweppes and the New Norfolk District Football Club. Thanks also to the canteen volunteers, a superb effort.
