Bute’s cricketers celebrated a hugely successful 2012 season at the annual Bute County Cricket Club prize-giving on Saturday at Restaurant No 29 in Rothesay.
The ‘player of the year’ award, voted for by the players themselves, went for the first time to Guy Crichton, who also took the prize for the most catches over the course of the season.
The top batsman award went to captain Mark Crichton, while the prizes for the best bowling and fielding performances over the course of the season were won by Chris South and Craig Murray respectively.
The Captain’s Award went to Tim Stobart at the end of his first season playing for Bute, while the ‘clubman of the year’ prize was awarded to Alan Peacock for his tireless efforts in ensuring the pitch at the club’s home ground in Rothesay was in top condition before every home match.
Bute finished the 2012 season in second place in the Western District Cricket Union’s Championship division, with notable results including a 28-run win away to eventual champions Helensburgh.
