Somerset County Cricket Club all rounder Lewis Gregory was the Chief Guest at the Cornwall Schools’ Cricket Association presentation evening, held at the Atlantic Hotel, Newquay.

After making the awards the Devonian gave a question and answer session and included reflections on his maiden first class century, made at Lord’s during the summer.

Another special guest was former CSCA and Perranarworthal cricketer Laura Harper, who went on to play for the full England Women’s team.

This year, in order to reflect the growth, development and success of the Girls game in the county, CSCA have decided to introduce an award for the Outstanding Girls Cricketer of the year – the Laura Harper Cup.

Secretary Malcolm Broad MBE reported on another great summer of cricket for the Association.

He said: “We didn’t have the best of weather but nevertheless completed over 130 county matches – our largest ever programme. There were many outstanding performances, but pride of place must go to our Under 17 team in winning the National ECB London County Cup.

"In addition our Girls Under 15 team also had a great season, once again winning their ECB group and also ending as runners up in their T20 competition.”

The Ted Collins Memorial Cup for the outstanding young cricketer in 2017 was awarded to Lewis Goldsworthy. He performed so well for the Under 17 team and also played for the full Cornwall Minor Counties team (although aged only 16) and toured Sri Lanka with England Under 16. He has joined the Somerset Academy.

The Laura Harper Cup for the outstanding girls’ cricketer in 2017 was won by Alice Bebb who performed so well not only in the Under 17 team and also in the full county women’s team, despite being only 16.

The Jonathan Harris Shield for the highest innings against a county team in 2017 went to Alex Bone for his 126 against Berkshire.

The One & All Shield for best bowling performance of the year went to Lewis Goldsworthy for his 7-20 against Dorset.

The Under 15 girls won their ECB group and were presented with certificates: Danielle Allbury, Millie Bray, Isabel Grant French, Emily Geach, Aimee Kent, Ellie Mitchell, Lucie Oakley, Rebecca Odgers, Hannah Trow, Freya Tyrell and Maddie Webber
