Manilla Cricket Presentation

Report and photos supplied by Jacob Hawley

The Manilla Bowlo’s held there presentation night on Saturday night at the Major sponsors, The Manilla Bowling Club. 

Players, friends and family enjoyed a great night and a Chinese smorgasbord.

As this was the first season playing in the Peel Valley Competition the bowlo’s team have started all trophies from scratch. 

Our plan will be to make most trophies have a perpetual trophy to remain at the bowling club on display and get engraved each year with the new winner. 

We have the usual cricket trophies but also added a few funny ones as well.

This year we started that process with four of the trophies been made perpetual thanks to four great sponsors who have paid for the trophies, this is greatly appreciated. 

Those sponsors are, The Manilla Bowling Club, Hart Rural Agencies, Moore Than Just Kitchens and Warm Discussions Cafe. 

Trophy winners as follows.

* Hart Rural Agencies Trophy for Batting Aggregate – Russell Gardner 334

* Moore Than Just Kitchens Trophy for Batting Average – Steven Moore 31.2
