George Davies (Broxbourne CC) receives Cricket World Rigby Taylor 100 Club Award

The presentation, one of the five Cricket World Rigby Taylor 100 Club Awards, was made today at Broxbourne CC, in Hertfordshire, to George Davies.

George Davies was selected as one of the five winners to be recognised for their ‘100’ in 2019, scoring 140 from 59 balls – up there today with the recent record breaking hitting by Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan in the T20I series in New Zealand!

Described in his nomination – “A swashbuckling 140, from 59 balls, which included 15 maximums in an astonishing display of hitting!” – the remarkable innings was against Ickleford CC in a Hertfordshire Cricket League – 1st XI Division One match and consisted of 59 balls inc 10x4s and 15x6s – his team scored 346-3 in their 50 overs, going on to win the match by 209 runs.

Alastair Symondson, pictured above with George commented: “ We are delighted to be running these Awards with our sponsors’ Rigby Taylor, the UK's leading supplier of products for the construction, maintenance and improvement of sports, amenity and landscape areas.

When we launched the Awards, earlier in the year, we wanted to recognise the special moments with the bat and it was an outstanding achievement by George; but we also wanted to recognise, in some small way, the hardwork that groundcare individuals do in preparing the surfaces that they play on as well.”

Others with George and Alastair as part of the Awards : Darren Mugford (Rigby Taylor), Dave Gadsden (Groundsman) and Tim Pedlar (Chairman)

 Five players were selected to win a brand new GM Cricket Bat and a £350 Grass Seed/Fertlizer (Cricket Ground Renovation) Vouchers for their club – watch out for the other Award winning presentations being made around the country.
