DUMBLETON rounded off an enjoyable season with an end-of-season party and awards presentation.

Guy Stirling Lee was awarded clubman of the year to recognise all the work he’s done to set up the flourishing girls' section and launch a senior women’s team this year.

The number of girls and women playing cricket at Dumbleton has risen from around 15 to 70 in the last four years and Stirling Lee has been the driving force behind its success.

Ben Tegg was awarded the senior player of the year for scoring over 600 league runs at an average of over 60.

His contributions at the top of the order were key to Dumbleton’s first XI winning the West of England Premier League Gloucestershire Division and getting promoted to the second tier of club cricket next season.

The club also celebrated junior success this season with over 170 children attending coaching sessions and 13 teams playing over 150 matches.

There were also seven league and cup wins with the highlight being the under 13 boys reaching the national final of the ECB Cup in their age group.

Individual highlights included Danielle Gibson being selected for the Western Storm squad, Dan Holland playing for the Midland under 15s at the Bunbury Festival and Ryan Kilmister taking 100 wickets during the under 13s season.

Chairman David Smith said: "It’s been another great season for the club.

"There’s a lot of people to thank for working so hard to make it all happen but it’s created a great buzz around the place with plenty of success on the field and plenty of great socialising off it!"
