Kamran Munawar – John Lawrence Award Winner 2016

On Saturday we honoured some standout performers in Dulwich Cricket Club's 2016 season and celebrated an excellent year for the club at our annual Awards Dinner.

1st XI seamer Kamran Munawar took top honours, receiving the second ever John Lawrence Award to cap another excellent personal season. The award recognises the player who has made the biggest contribution and displayed real commitment to the club. A 3-2-1 awarding of points is made in every senior competitive match, including the senior teams, the academy and ladies games. Kamran's award recognised his consistency, taking 31 wickets at 16.58 in 21 competitive appearances for the 1st, 2nd and Academy XIs. He also chipped in with over 250 runs. Last year's winner Kira Chathli took home second spot in a close run contest, with 426 runs at 60.86 – including a career best 154* – for the Women's XI and 18 wickets at 18.67. Another 1st XI seamer finished third - Jon Lodwick took 24 wickets at 18.75 in 15 appearances.

Individual Player of the Year prizes were handed out to recognise outstanding contributions from across the club:

Tom Savill – 1st XI Player of the Year
Matt Quaife – 2nd XI Player of the Year
Jeremy Jones – 3rd XI Player of the Year

Club celebrity chef Prasanna Callaghan provided a fantastic curry, feeding the near 100 members in attendance at the Awards Dinner. There was good representation from all sections of the club with the Juniors, Women and volunteers being joined by all the Senior teams. We thank Prasanna and his team for putting on the food, and also to Noreen and her team who helped run the busy bar. Many thanks also to Matt Dixon, with various helpers, for his organisation of an excellent evening.

Cricket Chairman and local comedian Graeme Hough gave a warm speech praising all teams and the various award winners – noting particularly the achievements of the title winning 2nd XI and strong performances from the 3rd and 4th XIs. As always Graeme set some teams the target of improving their performance next season.
