Jono Boult was presented with the Bay of Plenty Cricket 2017/18 Player of the Year Award, at the annual Bay of Plenty Cricket Prizegiving, held on Wednesday (4 April 2018) evening.

The longtime Bay representative player, who wears the Bay of Plenty player number of 467 with absolute pride, made his senior men’s debut in February 2004. During the current representative season, Jono finished second on the batting list with 294 runs and headed the bowling stakes with 23 wickets. Boult also captained the Bay of Plenty Twenty 20 team at the annual ND one-day tournament.

Kane Williamson was awarded the Bay of Plenty First Class Player of the Year. The accolades continue to flow for the Black Cap Captain, with a record 18th New Zealand test century and leading the Black Caps to a rare series win over England, in the last couple of weeks.

A trio of players received trophies that recognized the achievements of three former high profile Bay of Plenty players. The Mike Wright batting prize was won by Joe Carter who posted 334 runs, with the Jono Boult winning the Derek Beard bowling trophy during the Bay of Plenty Senior Men’s team season. Tim Pringle was presented with the Brendan Bracewell most promising player award.

The Bay of Plenty Development batting honours went to two Tauranga Boys College First XI players. Ben Pomare won the batting trophy with 117 runs, with Dominic Crombie taking home the bowling trophy taking seven wickets, which included a hat-trick against Hamilton.
