WELL over 80 Juniors, Officials and Parents attended the Annual South Wilts CC Junior Presentation held at Salisbury and South Wilts Sports Club.

Thanks were extended to all the current and outgoing managers and coaches for their sterling contribution with the special mention accorded to Steve Brewer and Sean Burke for their dedicated work over seven years taking them through from under-nine to under-15 level as managers and coaches. Both will be continuing their much appreciated involvement within the club.

Awards for batting, bowling and most improved player were presented by representatives of the junior sponsors the Foresters Friendly Society, to delighted recipients at under 9, 11, 13 and 15 levels.

The highlight of the evening was reserved for the presentation by new Junior Directors of Cricket Stuart Nash and Russell Rowe to their predecessor Robert Wade for his outstanding near decade of dedication and commitment to the Junior Section. Rob was given a standing ovation by the packed audience.

As Rob mentioned on his acceptance speech both Russell and Stuart emerged through the much respected and successful South Wilts Junior set up and like Rob played at senior first Xl level for many years. They are worthy successors and are looking to increase its quality and intake.

Any parents/guardians with children aged six plus looking for winter and spring coaching opportunities with the prospect of representing the club at both junior level and beyond please contact Stephen Hatcher on 07722141033 or email hatcher23@hotmail.co.uk. All details will be passed to Russell Rowe and Stuart Nash.
