Hursey Seafoods, in conjunction with Cricket North West, will again support 1st Grade and Female Competition Most Valuable Player Awards for Season 2018/19. This is the fourth season for 1st Grade, and third season for the Female Competition.
The award recognises player performances in each 1st Grade One-Day and Two-Day game and all Female Competition T20 matches throughout the season, with players to earn points based on the following statistical measurements:
1 point per run;
20 points per wicket;
5 points per catch;
5 points per run out;
5 points per stumping;
1 point per not out;
5 points for 50 runs in an innings;
10 points for 100 runs in an innings;
10 points for 5 wickets in an innings.
The top three performances from each game will be highlighted on a weekly basis, along with the overall Leader board. Using this points system, batsmen, bowlers and all-rounders should have an equal chance at winning the award.
Players producing the best performance in each week will receive a $100 dine-in meal voucher from Hursey Seafoods, with the overall winner to receive $500 cash.
Past winners have been:
2015/16: Jake Libby (Latrobe), no Female Competition award.
2016/17: Aiden Marshall (Sheffield) & Judy Kelly (Ulverstone).
2017/18: Tristan Weeks (Latrobe) & Samantha Cotton (Ulverstone).
We thank Hursey Seafoods for their generous support, and encourage everyone to call in to their restaurant for a delicious meal whenever you are in Stanley (2 Alexander Terrace).
