South Canterbury Cricket Association Prizegiving 2013

South Canterbury Cricket’s end-of-season prizegiving for the 2012-13 season was held on March 27th in sponsor The Speights Ale House Function Centre.

The Wednesday evening 6.00pm start proved popular with a large number of players, parents, life members and supporters in attendance to listen to MC Julian Blanchard oversee the evening with Canterbury Wizards’ Willie Lonsdale and Ben McCord as Guest Speakers.

Julian ran the evening with his usual aplomb, and this was appreciated by all those in attendance.

Andrew McRae - Chairman of South Canterbury CricketAndrew McRae, the Chairman of South Canterbury Cricket spoke about the 2012/2013 season, particularly congratulating our Senior representative team on their successful season, culminating in a Hawke Cup Challenge.

He thanked all the sponsors, the SCCA Board and the staff for their work during the year. He also acknowledged the various prize winners, cricketing people, players, administrators, volunteers, sponsors and supporters who combine to keep the game prominent locally.

Ben McCord and Willie LonsdaleThe guest speakers answered questions individually from MC Julian Blanchard with increasing confidence, and then in combination with plenty of questions coming in from the audience, and am sure many people left the evening further enlightened as to what happens behind the scenes in the lives of professional cricketers.



The crowd then enjoyed some supper and those that didn’t rush off to watch Super15 enjoyed a yarn and discussion about the season.
