BERRY-Shoalhaven Heads have officially been awarded the Shoalhaven District Cricket Association two-day premiership, giving them grade a clean sweep of the first grade silverware this season.
After already winning the Twenty20 and one-day titles, the Magpies were announced as the two-day premiers on Thursday, following an SDCA executives' meeting - after the rest of the 2019/20 season was cancelled due to coronavirus.
Although Berry wasn't forced to bowl a ball in a grand final this season, this result is a testament to their regular-season success - where they finished in first place (on 117 points), just ahead of Ulladulla United (103).
The three lower grade premiership trophies went to Bay and Basin (seconds), Berry (thirds) and Basin (fourths).
Earlier in the season, joining Berry as one-day champions were Basin (seconds), Sussex Inlet (thirds) and Nowra (T20) - with Joshua Fernie winning man of the match (David Evans Medal) in the latter.
Along with Berry's turf title, the other T20 premiership (astro) went to North Nowra-Cambewarra, despite a man of the match effort by Sussex's Callum Franchi.
Also announced this week were all the individual and team award winners, highlighted by United's Conrad Greenshields winning first grade player of the year.
Greenshields, who also took out the batting and all-rounder award, scored 412 runs at 37.45 and took 24 wickets at 15.05 this season.
The other first grade award (bowling) went to Bomadery's Michael Coulter (24 wickets at 13.33).
Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemens' Gary Fuss took out both the second grade player and bowler of the year, thanks to an incredible 41 wickets at 7.78 - including 12/50 against Norths in round 14.
The other two awards in that grade went to Batemans Bay's Ryan Hall (batting - 285 runs at 47.50) and Basin's Liam O'Brien (all-rounder - 442 runs at 34 and 18 wickets at 9.72).
Berry's Alec Dobson starred in third grade, taking home both the player and all-rounder of the year awards, on the back of 409 runs at 51.13 and 17 wickets at 13.47.
Dobson's teammate Michael Troy (24 wickets at 7.92) won the bowling prize, as Ex-Servos' Harminder Singh (454 runs at 64.86) took out the batting gong.
Finally, this year's fourth grade competition belonged to Berry's Michael McCarron, who won all four awards, behind his 446 runs at 148.67 and 24 wickets at 7.21.
This season's four spirit awards went to Norths (first grade), Basin (seconds), Ex-Servos (thirds) and United (fourths).
Based on the aforementioned statistics, United's Greenshields was named SDCA Cricketer of the Year, while Berry took out the club championship.
Other major awards went to Norths' Blake Dixon (Boxsell/Goodger Award for most improved under 21s player), Bay's Andrew Malcolm (Hutchison Award for outstanding service to representative cricket), Norths' Justin Weller (Shoalhaven Creighton Cup Player of the Year), Bay's Ryan Hall (Sean Griffin Memorial under 18s Player of the Year), Berry's Ted Street (Curator of the Year) and David Single (Ted Regan Memorial Trophy for umpire of the year).
