Clelland & D’Costa pick up League awards

normal_p1000479_1024x812Chris Clelland and Leston D’Costa were both winners at the recent Grades dinner, Clelland winning the wicketkeeper trophy and D’Costa the under 18 batting trophy.  It ensured FPs retained the wicketkeeper trophy, following Geoff Morrison’s win in 2015 and also retained the U18 batting, which was won previously by Rutwik Hegde who has since joined Mannofield.  normal_p1000480_770x1024Despite large amounts of praise being dished out to certain clubs, it is great credit to those who have put so much effort in developing the players of the future that FP players have won the under 18 trophy twice in a row.

FPs of course also picked up the Small Clubs Cup in 2016, but oddly neither the Grades or the self appointed Jack Nixon failed to mention this in their lengthy speeches.  This is despite two Aberdeen clubs being in the final which again demonstrated the quality of cricket in Aberdeen.
