This award has been donated by Mavis and Mark Russell in memory of Bill Russell, a long time supporter and stalwart of the Club. The award has previously been voted on by the Committee but has changed this season to be an award voted on by the teams on a game basis on a 3-2-1 system.
2015 -2016 Winner
Jack Thomas wins the Bill Russell Award as the leading fieldsman at the Club decisively, based on fielding performances across 3rd., 4th., and 5th. Grades.
Jack didn't score as many runs as he would have like this season but more than compensated with his fielding performances. Predominantly fielding in the ring, Jack was a large contributor, irrespective of the position.
Jack consistently proved his versatility in the field, from slips to the boundary, where his strong arm was required from time to time.
Congratulations Jack on a thoroughly deserved Bill Russell Award.
