North West Cricket hosted their annual prize giving award evening at the Roots Lifestyle Centre on Wednesday evening (11 April) where cricketing excellence in various fields this past 2017/18 season were recognised.

Brady Barends deservedly took home the bowler of the year award.

Other big winners included the North West Women’s Dragons team, and the North West Rural side who won national championships.

Hoër Volkskool Potchefstroom’s cricketers also shone as they were awarded the best u.13, u.15 and u.19 players for North West at the CSA National Weeks. Corné Prinsloo (u.13), Christopher de Freitas (u.15) and Louis van Schalkwyk (u.19) were the deserved recipients.

Anton Stapelberg won the North West Cricket umpire of the year award after countless hours of service on the field this past season.

Shane Dadswell was named the North West Premier League player of the season. The NWU-Pukke batsman had a scintillating season hitting a memorable high score of 490 against Potch Dorp at Witrand.
