Molesworth celebrates double-premiership season

Chris Slater and Tony Hall.
ABOUT 60 people including players, members and guests attended the Molesworth Cricket Club annual dinner and trophy night at the Star and Garter Hotel last month. It was a great celebration of a double-premiership season in which Molesworth I was victorious in 2nd Grade and Molesworth II won the 5th Grade premiership.

Molesworth I all-rounder Brad Coppleman stole the show, collecting a swag of trophies including the Danny Godfrey Memorial Trophy for the best player in 2nd Grade. Coppleman had a terrific season and also won many Southern Cricket Association awards. Two of the club's up and coming stars Josh Ransley and Jye County also took home a number of trophies.

Another highlight of the night was the presentation of life membership to club stalwarts Tony Hall and Chris Slater. Hall has given great service to the club for around 15 years as a committee member including the running of the canteen for many seasons and is currently vice president of club. Slater started playing with the club back in the 1998/99 season and has been vice-captain of both Molesworth I and II teams. Slater has also played in five grand finals in the past five years, winning premierships with Molesworth I in 2010/11 and most recently with Molesworth II.
