Redman Award

Redman TrophyThe original concept behind the Redman Award was founded by the A Grade Captain/Coach, Dennis Murcott, towards the end of the 1980/81 season. The back pages of the A Grade scorebook from that season is covered with calculations, which totalled points for runs and wickets, however it seems that despite a winner being found (Jack Prest with 769 points), the decision was made … “No premierships, no Redman”!

Thus the first official winners were announced at the end of the 1981/82 season and the picture below shows the first version of the award being presented. The award continued to be presented annually and in 1985/86 the perpetual trophy (photo above) was created and presented for the first time.

Over the years the calculation method to establish a winner has gone through a number of changes, with various points systems covering; runs, wickets, fielding, training attendance and even social attendance. With the introduction of the Limited Overs Competition, for a brief period the Club presented separate awards for 2-day and 1-day players.

Today, the Redman Award is awarded based on points allocated by the captains after every minor round game. Captains vote 3-2-1 for 2-day grades and 1.5-1.0-0.5 for 1-day games. Points awarded take into account influence on game, game statistics, attitude and behaviour on the field and temperament and sportsmanship. Previous winners of this award are:
