On Saturday 16th November 2013 the winners of the Bob Barber Awards from U13 through to U19 were announced and presented at a dinner at the Crowne Plaza in Geneva hosted by Gingins Cricket Club after the U15 Indoor tournament at Le Chat.
The winners of the different categories were as follows:
Throughout the 2013 season Luke has been a key bowler, taking wickets in almost every spell (if not over), and a key big-hitting batsman regularly shaking-up the pace of the game and pushing his side towards victory.
For leading the U13 national side with grace and respect, and being the solid performer around which the team gelled.
Three awards were given at this level, all to U15 players who shone:-
For strong performances with the bat (including opening and being not out throughout the Zuoz tournament), strong determination and willing, and stepping up to be the stand-in wicket keeper for the Colts.
For consistently strong spin bowling, including a key 5 wicket haul, and strong performances with the bat.
For development and success as a strike bowler for the Colts, as well as strong performances with the bat (including also opening and being not out throughout the Zuoz tournament).
Excellent captaincy of the most successful Swiss Colts team that there has been to date. Greatest contribution in the mind - that often overlooked essential cricketing tool.
