POIDEVIN - GRAY TROPHY The award is in recognition of the Outstanding player of the Poidevin-Gray competition, based upon the accumulation of Champion Player Points throughout the competition.
The Club Logo was designed in Austin's memory.
2015-16 Winner is: LIAM GIBSON
Liam Gibson is the winner of the Austin Diamond Award as the best Player in the Poidevin-Gray Competition for a staggering fourth straight year!
Liam had another very strong PG's campaign, compiling 194 runs @ 38.80 in his six matches. He also contributed four wickets, including a vital 3/24 against Blacktown to help secure a win.
Liam's season was highlighted by a very impressive 97 not out in a low scoring match against Sydney University. Perhaps he didn't get the support he deserved with Liam's unbeaten 97 really standing out in a team total of 182, with Wests going down by only two wickets in a hard fought loss.
Unfortunately, this was Liam's last season as an eligible PG's Player, so the Diamond Family will get to meet someone new next year, as they present Austin's Award.
Congratulations Liam for contributing this rare record and on a brilliant Poidevin-Gray career for Western Suburbs.
