Charlie Savill, age 19. Charlie has been with Shenfield Cricket club since he was 9 years old and has worked hard to develop a technically strong technique.

He followed that up the very next week with a 50 for the 3rd team.

Autumn Winners x 3
Daniel Osborne, age 16. Dan has displayed a wholehearted and all-encompassing attitude at the club, and in particular throughout the last season. His attitude is first class, making every effort not just to attend the regular sessions for his age group, but when there, he is one of the first to offer to help set up, or close down every training session. He is often seen continuing to practice in the rain, long after others have disappeared under cover, setting the best example possible to many younger players. He was ever present throughout the U16 Matchplay run, playing in every group game and knock-out stages right up to the final, where despite not being selected to play, was inevitably in the forefront of the support for his team mates.
£200 grant. Dan would like his award to be used for Fish & Chip supper & raffle prizes for the fundraising quiz night on Friday 18th Nov.

Harsh also scored 124 not out for the Senior 2nd XI team against Wickford; then followed that up by sharing a record breaking 3rd wicket stand of 228 playing for the 1st XI - scoring 123 v South Woodford. He also represents Essex in the U17 County squad.
£200 grant. Harsh would like to use his award for cricket T-shirts for the Squad, Coaches & Manager for the U16 Matchplay Final on Saturday 17th September.

Harris bats with purpose and a sense of confidence in whatever the situation. Harris is an explosive batsman who continues to make great strides in his cricketing career.
£200 grant. Haris would like to use his award for a Cricket Net ball feeder.
