A special award of a silver salver was presented to Sue Stockdale who has had to stand down as first team scorer due to injury, after being named top marked scorer in the Hunter’s York and District Senior Cricket League for the past two years.
Hopefully Sue will be able to resume scoring duties sometime in the future, as it is a big loss to the club and she really enjoys doing the job.
Bouquets went to scorers Sue Stockdale and Maureen Cowan, with third team scorer Neil Ibbotson being presented with a pen.
Bouquets also went to Linda Rudd, for all the hard work she does helping with the juniors, and tea ladies Dee and Cheryl.
Richard Wensley, former managing director of Warrior Sports, Wakefield, donated several items of cricket equipment to the club, cricket bats, pads, gloves and cricket balls for juniors and seniors.
The club will use the cricket balls but are hoping to boost club funds with the other items being raffled off in the summer.
Richard has been a long-time supporter of the club and although not in the best of health seldom misses a dinner.
The club send a big thank you to Richard for all he has done for the club over the years.
His Warrior bats have always proved very popular in the Bridlington and Scarborough areas.
