Ernie Aitchieson Fair Play award on and off the field for youth cricketer:

Edward (Ed) Heenan – a quiet achiever Ed has opened the batting for Roncalli, scored a century during the season. However it is off the field that he comes the fore, always at practice, or volunteering to help with cricket.

 SCCUA GRAEME LOWRIE SPIRIT OF CRICKET AWARD for the senior cricketer who epitomizes the way the game should be played: Decided by Umpires

Adrian (AC) Cunningham. This was a game between Temuka V Timaru. The batsman on strike (AC Cunningham) played at a quick delivery from Dinesh De Silva. The ball swung late, heading towards leg stump. The ball went down to fine leg. The two batsmen ran one single. AC Cunningham got to the non-strikers end, and said straight away.

“Ump I never hit the ball and I never played a shot at the ball, would you like to withdraw the run”.

The umpire called and signal dead ball to the scorers, and got an acknowledgement from the scorers. The two batsman returned to their original ends. We feel that AC’s attitude to the game has improved especially over the last 2 seasons, and are happy to award him this trophy.

SOUTH CANTERBURY SUPPORTERS CLUB TROPHY – To player/Umpire/Administrator who contributes most on or off the field:

David Fisher – David as you will know has been Chairman of the SC Board of Control for the last 2 years and takes a very active hands on approach. However he also finds the time to be heavily involved with coaching of junior cricket as he helps the young players gain a similar passion for cricket that he has. He has coached the Primary Yr 5&6 side previously and the Primary A side the last 2 seasons and now is looking after a TBHS side as well as the SC U15s. You can find him at matches most weekends, morning and afternoon, and as a volunteer certainly gives 110% to anything he is involved with. This award shows that his efforts are appreciated, but not an excuse to stop just yet!

ALLAN EDGINTON TROPHY for Sports Personality of the year:

South Island Primary Schools Cricket Tournament (SIPSCT) Organising Committee.

The organizing committee led by Chairman Harvey King alongside John Davies, Peter Scott, Richard Davidson, John Threlkeld, Peter Walsh, David Fisher and Mark Medlicott spent over a year putting together the 2017 tournament which proved to be one of the most successful tournaments ever run. Feedback from Districts across the South Island has only been complimentary, and this reflects on the committee putting things in place to run such a successful event, and are worthy winners of this trophy.
