As the club season draws to a close, there have been no major movements in the final . This means that, barring any late results impacting on the ratings, Lancashire and Blackpool all-rounder Steven Croft is the 2010 Club Overall most valuable player, finishing the season with a rating of 113.8 points.

In second place is Pakistan and Woodhall Spa left-hander Fawad Alam, with former Sri Lankan Test spinner Dinuka Hettiarachchi in third.

Croft also tops the batting tables, having overhauled long-time leader Neston's Brad Rasool, who sits in second place, ahead of Hampshire Cricket Academy's Chris Wood and Port Talbot Town's Mark Wallace.

Hettiarachchi ends the season as the leading bowler, followed by Rotherham Town's Ben Sanderson, Little Stoke's Daniel Colclough and Hyde's Rob Woolley.

Woolley jumped up one place from last week as Marcus Sharp dropped from fourth to fifth.

Liptrot's former Worcestershire bowler Chris Liptrot dropped from sixth to tenth to be the week's biggest mover in the bowling rankings.

Performances of the week

Brixworth pair Steven Crook (153 not out) and Paul Blakemore (112 not out) shared an unbroken stand worth 258 against Northamptonshire Cricket Academy as their side piled up 309 for three. However, their efforts weren't enough to force a win as the Academy closed on 149 for three in 32 overs.

This week's outstanding bowling performance came from Grimsby's Gary Tillison. He took seven for 40 as his side narrowly missed victory, closing the game with Louth on 153 for eight in reply to 215 for eight. Tillison bowled four maidens in his 15-over spell.

The are calculated by collating the scores of all ECB Premier League matches. Every run, wicket and catch earns a player points, which are then divided by each match played. A player must play three matches to become eligible for an MVP rating.
