DROITWICH Spa Cricket Club brought the curtain down on the 2017 season with their annual dinner and awards evening at Gaudet Luce Golf Club.

After scoring more than 1,000 runs this summer, Ash Fearnall was presented with two first team awards for overall player and batsman of the season with Phil Thomas winning the prize for most wickets.

The players of the season for the seconds, thirds and fourths were Carl Thomson, Matt Gurr and Jacey Foster respectively.

Ollie Sankey collected the young player of the year while Paul Foster claimed the third team leading wicket-taker accolade for an eighth season in a row.

Eleven Droitwich youngsters have been selected for the Worcestershire development programme over the coming winter.

They represent more than half of those nominated for trials from the club for the county’s boys and girls under 11s to under 17s age groups.
