The Bridlington Cricket Club seniors presentation night took place in the clubhouse at Dukes Park.

Yorkshire batsman Adam Lyth was the special guest and held a question and answer session, about cricket in general and particularly his experiences of the county game.

Earlier Carl Parkin had hosted a quiz session which was won by the Leeson brothers and their wives.

The presentation saw the club’s leading players honoured for their achievements during the 2013 season.

The first team batting and bowling awards went to Casey Rudd, who is currently enjoying the sunshine in Australia, playing cricket while on a working holiday, and is performing well.

The second team batting trophy went to Rob Middlewood and the bowling honours went to Peter Bowtell.

Jack Ibbotson took the third team batting award after a magnificent season, during which he secored his first century. Dean Welch won the bowling trophy.

Rudd’s efforts with the bat in the Evening League saw him amass 615 runs at an average of 55, which put him top of the pile. Best Evening league bowler was Richard Lount, a title which he has won before and which indicates he should bowl more often than he does.

The final award on the playing side went to Elliott Traves as the most improved player, as the talented all-rounder showed what a fine prospect for the future he is during 2013.

Bouquets wents to Linda Rudd for her hard work throughout the season, the tea ladies Carol and Gill for the fine job they do each week, and for organising a barbecue and the excellent buffet at the presentation evening.

The evening ended with a disco, which was enjoyed by many of the guests.
