Division One League Winners. Division One Fair Play Award winners. And the leading run scorer in Division 1 – 2017 will be a year that Calmore Sports Club will not forget and they celebrated in style at the British Gas Southern Premier Cricket League annual presentation night in Southampton on Friday evening.
Despite the huge disappointment of not being granted their promotion to the Premier Division, Calmore Sports supported the League with aplomb by being the most represented club at the Presentation Night and showed their delight when skipper Mark Lavelle was presented with the Division One League winners trophy by former England fast bowler and the night’s guest speaker Angus Fraser.
Ben Johns’ outstanding season with the bat was recognised as he received the Division One leading run-scorer trophy and, to again prove the point that you can be gracious in victory as well as defeat, lifted the Division One Fair Play award for the third time in four years.
The evening, at the Southampton Novotel, was a resounding success with the Premier League winners Havant and Division One champions Calmore Sports being the most supported clubs on the night but it was the enjoyment and attitude of the latter that shone through.
