2015 -2016 Cristian Lorenzato
Cristian Lorenzato is the Green Shield Player of the Year, after a brilliant campaign with both bat and gloves.
Cristian scored 141 runs and was only dismissed twice, creating a remarkable average of 70.50. He was also a stand out in the Competition as a 'keeper, finishing with 12 dismissals (11 catches, 1 stumping).
He accomplished all this while captaining Wests AW Green Shield, a monumental task for a 15 year old. His performances improved with the added responsibility.
Cristian also played a full season in 3rd. and 4th. Grades, a total of 18 matches for Western Suburbs, which was a great effort considering his age.
Congratulations on a brilliant Green Shield performance, Cristian and the Club is looking forward to many more productive seasons from you.
