SENIOR PRESENTATION EVENING 2022
The Senior Presentation was held on Friday 11th November at the Club. The evening was a sell out and we welcomed Ronnie Irani as our special guest. Along with the various individual awards to recognise performances throughout the 2022 season we also welcomed three more former players into our Hall of Fame.
The three new inductees to our Hall of Fame were Henry Hall, Terry Stewart and Jonathan Fielding. Henry holds the record for the most 1st team appearances with 538 and scored over 6,000 runs for us. The late Terry Stewart was part of a feared opening bowling partnership with Brian Fielding. His son Mark collected the award on his behalf. Terry took over 50 wickets in a season four times and took 595 league wickets. Jonathan or Trigger has only just hung up his boots. Jonathan took 823 wickets for us with only Fred Duerr above him. He also took over 100 wickets in a season twice, in 2010 and 2011.

A new award was introduced this year with our 3rd team umpire, Nigel Tench, presenting special medals to players making the step up from junior to senior cricket during the season. The first four awards went to Harry Collinge, Freddie Johnston, Maeve Jones and Louis Almond-Read. The first senior games of what we hope are long careers at Ramsbottom.
We were also delighted to award our special baggy green caps to three members of the Women’s 1st team in recognition of scoring their first half centuries for Ramsbottom CC. The players receiving the baggy greens were Maeve Jones, Grace Johnson and Daisy Hunt.
