In this edition of the Bay of Plenty Cricket Blast from the Past we look back at the Bay of Plenty Cricket prize-giving in 2006.
Bay of Plenty Cricket saluted excellence in cricket within the region with the presentation of the Bay of Plenty Cricket awards on Sunday (7 May 2006) at the Cosmopolitan Club, Mount Maunganui.
The Bay of Plenty Cricket player of the year is awarded to the Bay player who has the most impact on regional and national cricket during the season. For the second successive year Graeme Aldridge received the prestigious award. During the past twelve months Aldridge broke onto the international cricket stage with his selection for New Zealand Emerging Players and New Zealand A teams.
Bay of Plenty youngster Amandeep Singh made a stunning entrance into Fergus Hickey Rosebowl cricket when he grabbed a hat trick against Counties Manukau during February 2006. The BOP Cricket awards will cap a remarkable season for the talented pace bowler. In the space of seven months Amandeep has progressed from the Tauranga Boys College first eleven to making his debut for ND. In recognition of his magnificent season Amandeep picked up the Derek Beard bowling trophy and the Brendon Bracewell most promising player of the year.
A new award this season is the BOP Cricket Club of the Year. The new trophy recognises a number of different criteria, which includes effective club administration, junior cricket participation, effective coaching programs and on field results. The inaugural winner of the club of the year is Mount Maunganui.
