This award has been somewhat in abeyance during the past few weeks as the club’s league teams have been going through a rough trot. Of course, there have been some tremendous individual efforts in that time. Guy Warman continues to smash it to all parts, including an amazing century two weekends ago; Sam Gardiner picked up his first five-for, albeit in a losing cause, for the Firsts against Old Albanian on Saturday and, in the Fourths, that wily old campaigner John Inman has been nurdling the ball around to great effect lately. There were also two terrific 50s in the first under-19 20-20 from Robert Morley and Ollie Pitts. However, we want to say well played to a club newcomer, Harry Jarman, who has had an impressive start to his Knebworth Park senior career. In his first game he struck 37 and took four wickets as the side secured a tie, its best result of the season to date. Last weekend, the 16-year-old again starred with bat, scoring 43, and took two wickets in a tight opening spell. Well played, Harry, and welcome to the Park.
Every week, the chairman will select the player who has produced the most exceptional cricketing performance of the weekend programme. It won’t necessarily be the highest scorer nor the bowler who has the best figures but someone who has produced that little bit of magic to win a game or turn a match around. We hope his or her team-mates join the celebration by paying for their drinks at the bar.
