After a bumper fixture-laden year, the end of season bash once again provided an evening of glitz and glamour, exemplified by Slick’s fantastic jacket. The Quokka best and fairest, “The Rev”, was up for grabs this year with a number of our finest in the running for player of the year. News of the close run race had obviously leaked as the quokkette turn out was high – obviously eager for the attentions of the eventual victor.
Compared by the Skip, the review of the season took place throughout the evening, interspersed with food, wine and plenty of awards for outstanding contributions to the Quokka cricket in 2009. So without further procrastination here are the smaller awards:
Smithers Champagne Moment
The Skip for his unbeaten 109* in the last game of the season
“Mad dog” 20/20 Award
A new award for this year won by the peerless Simon D
Evil Dave pulled the greatest trick once again and convinced the ladies he didn’t exist, taking home the ball in a cup
The main award was up for grabs throughout the season with Simon D, the Attack, Hairdresser and the Skip all topping the Revometer at various points, however, showing consistency and run-scoring prowess at the top of the order proved the winning combination with Shandy taking home the Rev for 2009. Congratulations to him and all our award winners, as well as all the Quokkas who made it another enjoyable season
