Presentation Evening

Annual Awards 2021

The Chidham & Hambrook CC 2021 annual awards took place in the Barleycorn on Saturday 9th October and once again the 30 players and family members in attendance were treated to a delicious curry buffet thanks to pub owners Alex and Kelly. Following dinner, the golf society and annual cricket awards were dished out by Keith and Vinnie who even managed to sing a little song during proceedings - Howzat! Vinnie also gave thanks to Rory, Keith and Pete for all their hard efforts in 2021 and also congratulated Willem and Georgina for deciding to celebrate their 17th wedding anniversary in the presence of the Hawk's family.

 

Players had to feature in at least 5 matches to be considered for an award and once again the key prizes were decided on the overall batting and bowling stats for the season. Rory Peterson received the Top Batsman award for the 4th season in a row with an amazing batting average of 123 runs - he played in 11 matches scoring 492 runs, retired 7 times, had 4 scores above 50 with a highest of 99, broke one window, damaged one car and sent many people running for cover in Privett Park, Gosport. The Top Bowler award for 2021 went to Adam Selves who played in 7 matches, took 12 wickets for 121 runs with a bowling average of 10.08, a strike rate of 12, an economy rate of 5.04 and a combined bowling rate of 7.88. Special mention also to Matt Hill who was the top wicket taker with 14 this season in 15 matches. The Top All Rounder prize went to Willem Van Niekerk who was the 2nd best batsman overall with a batting average of 86.5 and the 2nd best bowler with a combined bowling rate of 8.10.

 

The Top Fielder prize went to Steve Clark who put his body on the line in every game and took many blows to the body including a nasty one to the nose as well as taking a few catches along the way. The Duck Prize went to Stuart Turner with 5 ducks in 10 innings but the Hawks newcomer also took home the Most Improved player award for turning things around considerably towards the tail end of the season, culminating in his first ever 4 in the Chidbrook Cup. POD also kindly donated a huge rubber duck complete with Hawks badge which will be awarded to the player who gets the most ducks in 2022 - each player will have to the sign the duck with a sharpie pen when they are given out for a duck in a match. 

 

There were 6 nominations for the cherished Player's Player award including Rory, Matt Hill, Keith, Andy Clark, Steve Clark and even one for Harriet Hawk but Clarky Snr romped home with a unanimous decision. His fellow players stated that he:

 

Oozes Chidham, a Hawk through and through

Always up for a game and the social side

Batting and bowling underrated

Always there to muck in

Supports every player during the game

Great ambassador for the club and makes the opposition feel welcome

Graceful in winning and losing

Lives for the sport and his enthusiasm rubs off on other team members

Turns up to score when he’s not playing

First man at the bar to get the round in

He let me have a go at keeping and gave me guidance during the game

The mankini swung it for me!

 

Unfortunately, Steve wasn't there to the collect his two awards on the night but Clarky Jnr took them on his behalf and presented them to Steve the following day.

 

Keith and Vinnie then handed over to Rory for the all important Chairman's Award and this year he selected Matt Hill for his professionalism and dedication to improving his bowling skills, with Matt spending many a solo evening in the nets as well as practising in the back garden. The efforts certainly paid dividends with Matt taking 14 wickets in the season.

 

Proceedings then concluded with the raffle where £140 was raised for the club funds with prizes ranging from a bottle of Chichester Harbour gin to a signed Arsenal book - a splendid evening was had by all!

Annual Awards 2019

The Chidham & Hambrook CC 2019 annual awards and AGM took place in the Barleycorn on Saturday 12th October where owners Alex and Kelly produced an amazing curry buffet for the 28 players and families in attendance. With dinner polished off and the golf society awards handed out by Vinnie, attentions turned to the annual cricket awards ceremony hosted by club Chairman Jason Burt. To make things easier and fairer this year the club committee decided to award the majority of prizes based on player statistics over the course of the season.

 

Rory Peterson received the Top Batsman award for his seasonal average of 79 runs. Johnny Maynard, who was sadly not present, received the Top Bowler award for his combined bowling rate of 7.84 and also the Top All Rounder award due to his bowling exploits and 36 run average, the 4th best for the season (Rory presented Johnny with his awards after an indoor cricket match on the Sunday night). Steve Clark won the Top Fielder award due to his acrobatics behind the stumps and the fact he played more games than anyone else during the season.

 

Matt Hill, who was away at a family party, received the Most Improved Player award for the increase in his bowling ability as the season progressed. Pete Wild received the treasured Duck Prize for the third time due to his 4 ducks during the season, one more than John Strudwick who was unfortunately injured for the last game in which Pete actually recorded his fourth duck! Another player who couldn't make the awards night due to being away at University was Tom Phizackerley and he won the Chairman's Award for his heroic performance at Bognor where he scored 164 runs not out as well as for his demeanour throughout the season where he was very supportive to the rest of the team despite his younger years. For this very reason Tom Phizackerley was also voted Player's Player of the season by the rest of his team mates - the highest accolade of the night.

 

Proceedings then concluded with the club raffle where a bottle of pink gin liqueur was won by Pete Wild and somehow got polished off by the end of the evening causing a few sore heads I'm sure (me included). Family members returned home after the raffle leaving the rest of players to hold a very productive AGM where all committee members retained their positions for the coming season.

Annual Awards 2018

The Chidham & Hambrook 2018 annual awards and AGM took place in the Hawk's spiritual home of the Barleycorn pub where owners Alex and Kelly treated the players and their families to an amazing curry. To say thankyou the club donated £50 to the pub's charity which involves cooking Christmas dinner for local residents who would otherwise be on their own Christmas day. Following the meal the team held a large raffle where 15 prizes were on offer including a special Gin hamper donated by POD.

 

Then came the important business of the cricket and golf awards (see golf page for more details). Star of the show was Rory Peterson who scooped the top batsman, top bowler and best all rounder of the season. Vinnie won the Chairman's award, Steve Clark won the best fielder award, Pete the most improved player trophy for the second season running and skipper Keith Davey won the duck prize in a very closely fought contest.

 

The club held their AGM after the awards where Andy Gubbs thankfully decided to stay on as Chairman for one more season and then the majority of players enjoyed a game of darts and pool in the sports bar. An enjoyable day all round!
