Canterbury Cricket Association Award Winners, 2006/07

The Canterbury Cricket Association 2006/07 Club and Representative Awards ceremony was held at the Canterbury Horticultural Society Hall at Hagley Park on Friday, April 20.

Though St Albans were light on team trophies to collect there were a number of individual awards picked up by club members on the night.

There was also the major consolation prize for the club in the form of the Petersen Shield, a trophy which goes to the most consistent club across all grades during the season. It is the 22nd time the club has won the prestigious award as well as being the third such success in the past four seasons. Only Sydenham (27) have won the Shield more times.

Besides the individual club and representative award winners also acknowledged were members of the two successful Canterbury representative teams this season. St Albans supplied an impressive four players to the Canterbury men's under-19 team which won the national tournament (captain Henry Fisher, Angus Bruce, Ben Langrope and James O'Gorman) and an amazing six players to the Canterbury Magicians side which won the State League (Erin Bermingham, Sarah Burke, Beth McNeill, Rowan Milburn, Amy Satterthwaite and Helen Watson).
