|Life members at the New Norfolk Cricket Club trophy night.|
Among the many highlights of the evening were the naming of the first grade bowling average trophy after the late Ashley Morgan, who was a great player, clubman and life member of the club.
Meanwhile Josh Walsh was awarded the Charlie Eiszele best clubman award for all his hard work with the juniors and for his help with the committee during the season.
The coaches for next season were also announced on the night. Todd Rusher was reappointed as senior coach, while Jason Rigby was named assistant coach and Seb Wishart was appointed to the position of development coach. Rigby and Wishart both come to the Red Caps from the St Virgil's Cricket Club, but Rigby has spent most of his career at the New Town Cricket Club. All three coaches will be looking to build on the 2015/16 season in which the club did very well in fielding three senior teams, two junior teams and also four T20 Blast teams.
The New Norfolk Cricket Club is in a sound position with a bright and exciting future. Well done to club president Jamie Hill and the officebearers and committee members on their efforts. Season 2016/17 should bring much success both on and off the field.
