Swanage Cricket Club first XI picked up the Dorset Funeral Plan team of the month award for May – after four wins in four games.
The Dorset Funeral Plan award for the month of May has been given to Swanage Cricket club for triumphing above other teams in the league.
The Swans were not expecting such a successful start to the campaign in the Premier League but found themselves starting June in the top spot – during May they defeated Shroton, Poole Town, Wimborne & Colehill and Shillingstone.
Pete Richards and Ryan Norman have starred with bat and ball, while Ian Booth and Ben Baczala have wielded the willow with aplomb.
The players were presented with a trophy, individual medals and a bottle of bubbly by Peter Douch, chairman of the sponsors, The Dorset Funeral Plan.
Skipper Ryan said, “We weren’t sure what team we’d have out this season so we didn’t think we’d do this well.
“But everyone made themselves available and when we have our full side out we’re strong.
“Everyone has contributed with bat, ball and in the field and that is a really good sign.”
Peter said, “The ground at Swanage is looking good and the whole club is doing well.
“The first team have got off to a sensational, unbeaten start and are fully deserving of the team of the month award.”
And Swanage made it five from five when they defeated Stalbridge in the first game of June.
