Michael Wright - our President, Ground Manager, League Delegate and 1st XI Scorer received an award today from the ECCB as the county winner in the Lifetime Achiever category. His award was presented to him by David Acfield, former first class player, now Chairman of the ECCB (Essex County Cricket Board) at a ceremony at the County Ground.
Shame we can't see the plaque in front of the certificate because it is transparent!
Michael has been at Shenfield CC for over 60 years, starting as scorer, (resuming that job when he stopped playing) and has, for decades, been Ground Manager and League Delegate. He played for very many years and was 1st XI Captain for a while, but it his work behind the scenes which merited the award. He has also been invited to Lords for the NatWest OSCAs on 30th September.
