Ben was nominated for his sterling performance on the field, primarily for the 3rd XI, throughout which he took six five wicket hauls and undoubtedly helped the 3rds in their promotion. His enthusiastic approach to the game is unquestionable as is his doggedness to bowl 15 overs on the bounce during many a game.
Of note is his motivation to the younger players during 'hard' games and he has therefore been, without doubt, one of the kingpins of the team.
With so much rain this summer, Ben has wisely decided that his award money should be used to purchase a Super Sopper.
Here is Ben receiving the award from the President, John Burrows, at the club's Annual Dinner & Dance on 13th October 2006.
