This award commemorates one of Wests' longest serving and most successful players. It is awarded to the Under 21 player judged by the Committee to have enjoyed the best debut year in grade cricket.
For the purposes of this award, a player is eligible for consideration provided that he was available for selection in at least two-thirds of the Grade matches for the current season and not having played more than three games in the previous season.
2015 -16 Winner: Nick Cutler
Nick Cutler wins his third major award for the year, with what is a fairly obvious choice for the Wally Brown Award, celebrating the best debut by an Under 21 Player.
Nick's statistics are well recorded throughout this 2015-2016 book. However, it should be added that Nick's demeanor, professionalism and quiet determination were evident on his arrival at Wests. Qualities that will provide the foundation for what we hope is a long and successful career with the Magpies.
