Clarence DCC held their Annual Club Dinner on Saturday April 6th to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the club as well as individual players across the 2018-19 season.
After another outstanding season, Harry Allanby claimed the Emerson Rodwell medal for the second year in a row in what was an incredibly close vote count. The First Grade side that Allanby was a part of had a great season on the field, featuring in the Grand Final before being defeated by a strong Lindisfarne side. Liam Rice claimed the Allen Newman Medal in the Second Grade vote count. Michael Jones joined Allanby as Wicket Keeper in the Men's team of the Year while Emma Thompson was named in the Women's Team of the Year. The Women's side had another solid year also falling short of a premiership, going down to North Hobart in the Grand Final.
The Boys U17 side had an outstanding finish to their season with an upset win against Kingborough in the Grand Final to claim the premiership trophy. The club finished in strong positions once again in the Club Championship and the Spirit of Cricket, finishing second with 397 points and 3rd with a 6.22 average respectively.
At a club level, Daniel Salpietro featured heavily in the awards claiming the Ian Beven Medal, First Grade batting average, First Grade bowling average, One-Day Cricketer of the Year (tied with Harry Allanby) and T20 Cricketer of the Year. Emma Thompson claimed the Leesa Walker Medal in the Women's category, while Lawrence Neil-Smith was named Two-Day Cricketer of the Year. Lachlan Borsboom was another to claim multiple awards, taking out the 2nd Grade batting average, U17 Boys batting and bowling average, Junior Cricketer of the Year and U17 Boys Cricketer of the Year. Grace Ash was named U17 Girls Player of the Year for her efforts throughout the season, while Ozzie Warmbrunn was awarded the U15 Player of the Year.
