Caistor’s First XI finished third in the Premier Division as they narrowly failed to defend their league title, while there were some bright spots for the Second XI during a tough season in Division Two.

Danny Bevis was a double award winner, being named the First XI Player’s Player of the Year as well as winning the Bugsy Blast Trophy for most sixes.

Jim Parker won the First XI batting trophy for topping the averages with 32.

Captain Kieran Brooker took home the Firsts’ bowling award, with 42 wickets at 26.93, as well as the Scott Eastwood Trophy for most club wickets, and the Chairman’s Trophy as fielder of the year.

Dominic Wooley was voted the Seconds’ player of the year by his team-mates, while Mathew Blackburn won the side’s bowling award after taking 23 wickets at 28.

The Jacob Trophy for most boundaries went to First XI batsman Gareth Johnson, and at the other end of the spectrum, the Duck Award for most noughts went to Dominic Wooley.
