The winner of the award for the Best Junior Playing Seniors cricket for 2018/19 was awarded to Ollie Garlick.
Ollie played in the 16As as a “bottom ager” on Friday nights and scored 114 runs from 8 innings at an average of 19. His finest knock was against Kew in the last game of the season when he scored 48no. batting at 4.
