Grantham Cricket Club celebrated a successful 2015 season at the Lincolnshire ECB Premier League dinner at Hemswell Court on Friday.
Sports journalist and broadcaster John Inverdale, who started his career in Lincolnshire and currently anchors the Six Nations rugby for the BBC, presented the awards before entertaining the cream of the county’s cricketers.
Inverdale spoke fondly of his time in the county and fielded a number of probing questions from a captive audience during an entertaining performance.
First team Captain Daniel Freeman was presented with the league’s award for the most promising under-19 player, along with the Lincolnshire County Cricket Club batting award for scoring the most runs for the county club during their three-day Minor Counties fixtures in 2015.
Recently-retired head groundsman and current president of the club, Mick Marsh, was presented with an award for services to cricket, recognising the huge commitment he has shown over many years, not only to Grantham Cricket Club, but also as an active member of the South Lincs and Border League and Lincolnshire County Cricket Club.
