It is with great pleasure that Cricket Switzerland can announce the winners in each category of the 2014 Bob Barber Awards.
On Saturday 8th November 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Geneva, Mr Bob Barber himself presented awards to the selected junior cricketers from Switzerland who have been the benchmarks within their respective age categories.
Mr Barber first regaled the audience with incidents from his cricketing days, including tours to Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand, the West Indies and South Africa. Stories on how more cricket is played above the neck and between the ears than in the middle of the oval. The Swiss juniors and parents, a 75 strong group in attendance were absorbing every bit with rapt attention.
The U11 category went to James West of Basel Dragons Junior Cricket Club, the U13 category to Ed Clayton, also of Basel Dragons Junior Cricket Club.
Both these wards were presented by Bob Barber himself at the Ginings U13 indoor tournament dinner held at the Crowne Plaza in Geneva on Saturday 12th November 2014.
The three remaining awards were awarded jointly. The U15 category was jointly awarded to Ruan Kruger & Nicholas Henderson, the U17 category shared between Jai Sinh & Aidan Andrews and the U19 category to Arjun & Ashwin Vinod.
Congratulations to all the award winners and many thanks to Mr. Bob Barber for his continued support of Cricket Switzerland Junior cricket.
