Victors’ trio tops cricket awards

The Victors One trio of Alston Bobb, Ray Jordan and Donwell Hector made the most visits to the podium last Friday night at the Murray Heights Hotel, when the St Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association held its awards and recognition ceremony.{{more}}

Bobb was named the Senior Cricketer of the Year; Jordan is the Youth Cricketer of the Year, while Hector recorded the highest aggregate in the Premier Division of the national competition and he also recorded the most centuries – three.

The efforts of the three helped Victors One share the premiership title with Team Rivals and reached the semi-finals of the T/20 competition.

And, they were among the five Cricketers of the Year named at last Friday’s ceremony.

Bobb, an all-rounder, excelled in the various local competitions: the National Lotteries Authority Premier Division; the National Lotteries Authority Neil Williams Twenty/20 and the inaugural Super-40 competition. His efforts earned him another lien on the Zepton Greaves trophy which recognizes the best all-round cricketer during a calendar year.

Jordan, who bowled with pace in the local competitions, went on to represent St Vincent and the Grenadines at the Under-19 level for the third consecutive year and the Windwards for the second time in as many years.

Jordan’s exploits at the regional Under-19 competition gained him selection to the West Indies team which played against Bangladesh Under-19’s here in the Caribbean in October and was part of the team which had to abort the reciprocal trip earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Hector compiled 472 runs. Among his tally were his century knocks; 135 not out versus Police Two, as well as 108 against Victors Two and 101 not out, made against Guardian General Saints.

Apart from Hector, the other centurions in the Premier Division were Sunil Ambris of Saints, who scored 107 not out versus Victors Two; Victors One’s Lauron Francois – 101 not out also against Victors Two, while Lindon James of LIME Radcliffe registered 118 against the News Spartans.

Completing the century makers were the News Spartans’ Dawnley Joseph, who compiled 123 against Saints and Team Rivals’ Marvin Small, who recorded 112 versus Victors Two.(RT)
