As the 2013 cricket season draws to a close we thought we'd have a look at some of the milestones achieved by the club's players this summer.
Jon Sheard had his most productive season for WBCC since he joined in 2004 scoring 581 runs at 44.69. He scored more runs this year than his three previous seasons added together.
Ben Shaw's 957 runs at 50.37 were all accumulated in senior cricket for the first time. Only Henry Straw's season of 2010 (967 @ 53.72) is better since our play-cricket stats began in 2003.
Henry Straw passed 6500 club runs, Ben Shaw passed 4500 club runs, Jon Sheard passed 4000 club runs, Scott Berridge passed 2750 club runs, Rob Stewart passed 2500 club runs and Alistair Pettit passed 2000 club runs during the season.
Luke Essex's total of 239 runs at 59.75 for the Sunday 2nd XI was the best individual team average this summer. It was also his highest return for a summer for the club. He also scored 3 times the number of runs this summer for the Sunday 2nd XI than he did in one game less for the same team last season.
Stuart Clark's total run haul of 189 was 188 more than he scored last summer. There were 8 hundreds scored, 4 by Ben Shaw, 2 by Henry Straw and 1 each for Andy Jeffrey and John Grimes. John's 120* was the highest individual score for the club this season.
Henry Straw's 117* was his highest individual score for the 1st XI.
Kulvern Kandola's total of 54 wickets was his highest seasonal return for the club. His 6-46 against Long Eaton was his second best return for the club.
Alistair Pettit's 7-16 against Nottingham Badshahs was the best competitive league haul for any WBCC team in the play-cricket era.
Alex Sheriston's 6-28 against Southwell was the best return in Saturday league cricket this season and joint 5th best for the 1st XI in the play-cricket era.
Tom Crossland now has the 2nd best average of any bowler who has taken 50 wickets for the club in the play-cricket era. Only the legendary MT has a better average.
Hayden Dudley took 29 dismissals as wicket keeper this summer including 12 stumpings, the highest return in the club. His 30 stumpings in all seasons is the highest in the club's play-cricket records.
Henry Straw is 1 wicket behind Andy McCarroll's total of 97 wicket keeping dismissals.
