    Apr 04, 2011

    2010/11 MCC club champion Andrew KentCaptain-coach Andrew Kent was rewarded for an excellent season with the bat when he received his second club champion trophy at the MCC cricket presentation dinner on Saturday night.

    Kent’s 785 runs at 46.18, including four centuries, had earlier in the week also seen him named captain of Cricket Victoria’s Premier Cricket Team of the Year.

    The quality of the club’s home ground, Albert Cricket Ground, was also recognised, with groundsman Michael Salvatore earning the competition’s best curator award. Well deserved, indeed.

    Fourth XI captain Ashley Farr was named best clubman, Australian under 19 representative SDeb Gotch was named young cricketer of the year and Chris Janik earnt the Players' MVP Award.

    Third XI batsman James Gillard's epic 241 not out in the quarter final - only four batsmen in the club's history have made a higher score - saw him receive the Brian Watson Memorial Aaward for "most outstanding performance by an MCC cricketer".

    The club also paid tribute to retiring MCC cricket chairman Bob Lloyd for his outstanding contribution, as well as 300-game player and outgoing Second XI captain Eivion Bowen.
