Alliance cricketers celebrate another summer of success

Premier division champions Fakenham with Emma Conway from Dipple and Conway and John Tythcott, vice-chairman of the Norfolk Cricket Alliance. Picture Credit Newsmakers PR The big hitters of club cricket celebrated a season to remember when the Dipple & Conway Opticians Norfolk Cricket Alliance handed out its 2015 awards. Honours were spread right across the county with Fakenham taking pride of place during the awards night at Wensum Valley Hotel and Country Club after their exciting young team, led by Australian Keegan Monahan-Fairlie, won the Premier Division for the first time since 2011.

Fakenham s subsequent frustration at missing out on promotion to the East Anglian Premier League, when they lost in the play-off semi-finals, was softened when they were named as Club of the Year. Among the individuals honoured was Vauxhall Mallards veteran Carl Amos, who at 42 continued to show the quality that has made him a legend of Norfolk cricket by finishing as the league s leading run scorer with a total of 1074. The bowling honours were shared by Norwich s Simon Key, whose 38 wickets helped his team to the Division Two title, and Marcus Bishop of Lowestoft, while Andy Dale took the wicket-keeping award with 30 dismissals for Swaffham.

Neil McDonald, Dipple & Conway s Group Practice Manager, said the second year of sponsorship had been another fulfilling one, adding: It has been exciting to be involved in a competition which reflects all the positive things about sport in Norfolk. The quality of the cricket has been exceptional and the spirit even more so, often with different generations of the same families playing side by side. Company director Matthew Conway added: We are a family-run, community-orientated business, about to celebrate our centenary in 2016, so it was fitting to be supporting a league which represents not only tradition but friendly competition played out in the heart of the county s communities.

Alliance chairman Peter Thomas, who helped present the trophies with Matthew Conway, Emma Conway and Neil McDonald, said: There s no doubt that the input of Dipple & Conway has made a big difference to the competition over the past two years with the introduction of the player of the month awards further adding to the level of interest. He added: We also pride ourselves on our youth section which is getting youngsters involved in cricket, gaining confidence and even playing in adult teams, which is good for the future of the sport. On the Club of the Year award to Fakenham, he added: They were good both off and on the field.

It was just disappointing that they couldn t go on to get the reward they really deserved by getting in the EAPL. But they are a young team and I think with another year of experience they can only get better. The awards evening was compered by Anglia Television presenter and keen cricketer Jonathan Wills.

Ben's 9-35 stunner sets him apart in Player of Month honours list …

Dipple & Conway Opticians Norfolk Cricket Alliance August Player of the Month Ben Coote is congratulated by (L-R) Damian Conway, Matthew Conway and Alliance vice-chairman John Tythcott. Picture Credit Newsmakers PR A stunning nine-wicket haul in his first game following injury laid the foundation for a fabulous August which saw North Runcton paceman Ben Coote named Dipple & Conway Opticians Norfolk Cricket Alliance Player of the Month. I had been out for several weeks after tearing my ankle ligaments playing football, said Ben.

We had a fixture against Great Witchingham A and even on the morning of the game I wasn t sure if I was going to play. It felt good after a work-out, so I said to the captain I am up for it . The 21-year-old clean-bowled five of the opposition batsmen and had four others caught behind by the wicketkeeper as Witchingham were skittled out for 97.

Ben finished with 9-35 and North Runcton went on to win by seven wickets. Ben followed up his explosive start to August with four-wicket bags against Acle at home and Horsford A away. Taking nine wickets in a single innings is one of those once-in-a-lifetime achievements most bowlers will only dream about, said Damian Conway, joint owner of Dipple & Conway Opticians, the family business started by his grandfather in 1916.

It makes Ben one of the most worthy winners we have ever had of the Dipple & Conway Opticians Norfolk Cricket Alliance Player of the Month Award. Damian and his nephew Matthew Conway were joined by Dipple & Conway Opticians Norfolk Cricket Alliance vice-chairman John Tythcott for the presentation of a commemorative pennant and a 179 pair of Adidas Sports sunglasses which Ben chose as his prize. It is now three times in four months this summer that players aged 21 or under have claimed our Player of the Month Award and we are delighted about that because it is shows a wonderful foundation for the future of cricket in Norfolk, said Damian Conway.

It speaks volumes for the quality of groundwork being done by dedicated junior coaches in clubs across the county. I am really pleased to be able to pay tribute to them as well as to Ben. Dipple & Conway has practices in Norwich, Diss and Swaffham.

Footsteps Ben has been playing cricket at North Runcton all his life, following in the footsteps of his father Peter, a club stalwart and former Norfolk player. He progressed to the senior sides in his mid-teens and is now the first team s main fast bowler. North Runcton finished second in Division One of the Dipple & Conway Opticians Norfolk Cricket Alliance this season, a mere five points behind champions Garboldisham.

North Runcton Cricket Club presented Ben with a special trophy to mark his achievement only the third time in the club s 80-year-history that one of its players has taken nine wickets during a league game. It had been a frustrating summer for me because of the injuries I had. It means I ve only played in seven games .although I ve been at the ground to support the team, said Ben.

But that day against Great Witchingham has made it a season I ll never forget. Ben graduated from Durham University this year with a degree in maths. He is working as a mentor at Springwood High School, King s Lynn, while he considers his options for a future career.
