Elliott went through a massive learning curve in this season, but came through with some excellent performances.

Special Award – Ricky Ellis –

At just 18 years old, in the words of our retiring Chairman Brian Edwards, he doubted young Ricky realised just what he achieved when he took a hat-trick in consecutive SNEL games, firstly against Woodford Green for our 2nd team, then one week later for our first team against Old Brentwoods.

A super effort, I suspect a place in the club history forever, as this will be one feat that will be very hard to be bettered.

Others worthy of mention, veteran bowler Cliff Cansdale 93 wickets, young stars of tomorrow Ben Kent a wicket keeper / batsman of some repute played in over 50 games for the club, at senior level (2nd X1 / 3rd X1 Saturday and 1st X1 Sunday) he was also a member of our U/13 team who came so close in a Cup final against Hadleigh and Thundersley.
