BOTH Bourne and Market Deeping were among the trophies at the Lincolnshire ECB Premier League annual awards night at Hemswell Court.

Bourne captain Peter Morgan received the League runners-up trophy, while Deeping’s David Gillett picked up the award for the most fielding catches taken during a season.

Gillett’s 20 pouches set a new league record, breaking his own previous benchmark in the process.

Although not present on the night, Pakistani paceman Fahad Masood – who was with Bourne last season – was awarded the bowling trophy, an award for the most wickets in a season.

Masood, who isn’t returning to the Abbey Lawn next season, also secured a share of the trophy for the most man of the match awards throughout the campaign.

Guest speaker at the evening was former Surrey and Nottinghamshire all-rounder Darren Bicknell, who entertained the 112 diners with tales of his professional cricket career.

Bicknell was introduced by league chairman Colin White.
