At the Parcel Yard pub in King’s Cross station, the Allstars and our other halves came together to celebrate another great season, and award the Allstars of the Year!
First recipient – Ash Rattan, for his great job organising the Paddington Rec nets and for the bowling performance of the season, 4-16 in our epic victory over the Gentlemen of West London.
Next, a more light-hearted award – Sirmad Shafique. He batted well on the Portugal tour, but as Haroon entertainingly told us, he comically almost missed it!
Next up – Sam Perera, our newcomer of the year and leading run scorer with 330 runs. He’s made an incredible impact in his first season with the club.
Our next recipient – club secretary Garreth Duncan, for our best ever season on the recruitment front.
Next up – Paul Burgin picks up an award, on behalf of his brother-in-law Nick Chadwick, for 17 years’ loyal service to the Allstars. We tried to get Chadders on a TV link from Switzerland, but it was past his bedtime!
And finally – the most deserving of awards, as Garreth presents the long service award to Haroon for 10 years’ fantastic service to the club.
