Special Award:

During the last two seasons one boy has given such devoted service to Bishops 1st XI cricket that we would like to present him with a special award.  Daniel Holgate has not just been the scorer. He has also, during this time when spectators haven’t been permitted at the games, kept the parents and other supporters entertained and informed by his regular updates form his lonely position in the scorebox. He has contributed immensely to the spirit and success of the 1st XI and we thank him for all he has done.  For his dedicated and always cheerful service to the 1st XI, we  would like Daniel to accept a 1st XI players jersey.
