Junior Player of the Year - Dandre DuPlessis

Dandre came to the club from Katikati and started out in our College Division 1 team.  Whist registering only average performances for Div 1, Sam Owen spotted him with the Junior Secondary team and after the first couple of games it was clear that he needed to be moved up to the Reserve Grade Team.  It is important to note that Dandre is only in year 10, yet he started with 3 wickets and 20 runs in a low scoring game against Greerton.  From there he has become a very reliable bowler for the Reserve Grade team and has even taken one Premier Team wicket.  Dandre was also the dominant player in his Riverbend Team taking out the MVP award and also performed well in the SuperClub team.  He is also proving himself to be an exceptional captain with a very good understanding of the game and how to manage his players in a very positive way which is a skill that is often overlooked.

 

Junior Clubman of the Year - Joel Griffiths

Joel Griffiths, a Year 8 player (12 Years Old) who also plays for Albion in the mornings but who has played all season for Otumoetai Cadets started in Division 2 and was moved to Division 1 when he could not attend the Waihi Division 2 game. 

He took 3 wickets in that game and finished as equal top wicket taker in term one with 10 wickets with an average of 7.6 and had an average of 29 with the bat. 

Joel has also shown a great attitude at practice and also com along to learn to score at one of the reserve games so that he can score for the seniors in the future if they need someone.  Recently I (Sam Owen) have also been asked if he would be allowed to come to the ground early when the seniors are playing just to help setting out the boundary markers etc. It's fantastic to see players show this sort of club spirit.
