PINCHBECK Cricket Club brought the curtain down on another season – and welcomed a new president at their annual dinner and awards evening.

Of all the trophy winners at The Ship Inn bash in Surfleet, it was club veteran Steve Robinson who was the stand out achiever.

His season’s haul of 27 wickets earning him the Bowling award and the senior player of the year gong.

Other winners included James Langford (fielding), Danny Jackson (young player), Adam Newell (most improved) and Richard Riley (batting), while skipper James Cole was voted Players’ Player of the year.

Trophies were presented by guest speaker and incoming club president James Smith, who Pinchbeck were delighted to welcome back having previously served them for 25 years as a player, captain and chairman.

The club endured a tough season back in the South Lincs and Border League, but look forward with optimism to better fortunes in 2012.
