Cornwall Schools Presentation Evening
Somerset County Cricket Club all rounder, Arul Suppiah, was the guest of honour at the Cornwall Schools’ Cricket Association’s 35th annual presentation evening, held at Perranporth. Having spent thirteen years at the County Ground, Taunton he announced his retirement earlier this year due to injury.
The Association’s General Secretary, Malcolm Broad MBE, reported a good year with the weather enabling most of the match programme to be completed. The Under 17’s were undefeated in two-day games and only lost to Gloucestershire in the last over in the cup. The Under 15 Girls team topped their ECB Group and convincingly beat Northants in the play-off, before losing the National Final to Huntingdonshire. The squad all received certificates to mark the achievement. The Under 14 boys narrowly came second at the Taunton Festival and the Under 13’s also had a successful year, following their tour to South Africa.
The Ted Collins Memorial Cup for the outstanding young cricketer in 2013 was awarded to the James Turpin, of Truro School and Wadebridge CC. He also won the perpetual trophy for the highest score of the year (156no for the Under 17’s v Dorset).
The best bowling performance of the year went to Rebecca Trew for her 6-11 against Wiltshire in the Under 13’s ECB Cup.
