Ramsbottom CC Junior Presentation Night 2019

Ramsbottom CC Junior Presentation Night 2019

The Ramsbottom Juniors have gone from strength to strength this season and over 120 parents and children celebrated the season in the Championship Room at Acre Bottom.

Compared to last season, the fortunes of the whole junior section have improved dramatically, playing more games and winning considerably more of them than last season. All age groups from All Stars to U15s have enjoyed a great season of cricket, spurred on by our national heroes in the World Cup and Ashes.

The whole evening is a celebration for everyone who took part with quizzes, raffle and awards for everyone who takes part. A large part of the evening is dedicated to acknowledging the best individual performances of the year across all the age groups. Well done to all our Junior Foundation members and to those who’ve had a stand out season.

“John Steele Award” Young Cricketer of the Season

Isaac Turner

The “Stephen Ratcliffe Award” was donated by the Ratcliffe family 3 years ago, when Stephen sadly passed away. Stephen was a legend in his playing career at the Club and this award is presented in his honour to the best all-rounder of the year. In its truest sense, this year’s winner Harry Bradley displayed not only some of the best all-round skills (388 runs at 40, 9 wickets at 23, 7 catches and 2 run-outs) but also his reading of the game and how best to apply his skills.

The “John Steele Award” was donated over two decades ago, to recognise the best performance and potential of a player within the Junior Foundation. Past winners of this award had already started to appear in the senior teams at Ramsbottom, leading to long playing careers and some captaining the senior teams. This year’s winner, Isaac Turner from the U13s, was a deserved winner for his 391 runs and 14 wickets in the season, but also for John’s absolute belief that Isaac’s appearance in the senior ranks is just around the corner.

Next season, we look forward to expanding our junior section to include dedicated girls teams, providing cricket for anyone in the community who wants to try it and ultimately, strengthening our performances across all junior teams.
