Richard Oliver and Dan Bowen have claimed the major awards for Shropshire’s Minor Counties cricket campaign.
Opening batsman Oliver, formerly of Whitchurch and now of Reigate Priory in Surrey, won the top batsman trophy while the leading bowling prize went to Shrewsbury paceman Bowen.
And captain Ed Foster was full of praise for the achievements of both players.
“In a tough summer for batsmen, Rich shone and played some memorable innings,” he said
“I was also very pleased with Dan’s performances, particularly after his injury problems that caused so much disruption in 2011.”
Oliver scored 378 Championship runs at an average of 63, including a brilliant 175 against Wales at Oswestry.
Bowen claimed 13 Championship wickets at 31.61, with his best figures 4-71 against Cheshire.
The Albert Barkley award for service to Shropshire went to Peter Dawson, who played more than 100 matches for the county and has stood down as secretary.
Last season’s FBC Manby Bowdler Shropshire County Cricket League champions Quatt have had their promotion to the Birmingham League ratified.
