WDCU Premier Reserve Division – end of season review

In a very competitive league, Titwood once again took the title and were for the third year in a row undefeated. This was testimony to the strength and depth of the club as they only had one batter in the top ten run scorers.  This was David Forsyth with 320 runs. They had no bowlers in the top ten wicket takers. However, they had a good squad of individuals, with every member of the squad chipping in and contributing.  The rest of the teams were capable of beating all others on their day and there were several very close games played during the season. The star all rounder was Calum Henderson of Ayr.  He was the leading wicket taker with 31 wickets. His “chinamen” proving a handful to most batsmen.  He also finished third in the run scoring charts on 328 runs.

The best batsman in the league, with 530 runs was Gowtham Rai from Uddingtson . He was über consistent scoring five 50s in his ten innings, including a highest score of 96*.

Special mention must also go to Alan Stevenson, who at the age of 54 scored his first senior hundred for Drumpellier. Unfortunately, Drumpellier finished bottom of the league.
