Huge congratulations to the OMCC for winning The Cricketer Trophy (2015) in style
On Sunday 9th August 2015, the Old Monmothians defeated Old Hurst Jonians (Hurstpierpoint College, Sussex) by 191 runs to win The Cricketer Trophy at Gerrards Cross CC, Buckinghamshire.
The Trophy tournament was formed in 2011 by the organisers of renowned The Cricketer Cup in an effort to expand participation and ultimately increase competition which subsequently raises standards. Then in time, teams that are successful in The Cricketer Trophy will push for a place in the main Cup competition.
in 2013 and 2014, the OM’s went out in the first round to the respective winners Lancing Rovers (Lancing College, Sussex) and Old Millfieldians (Millfield School). This year, the club were awarded a free pass to the Quarter Final stage as Old Sennockians (Sevenoaks, Kent) forfeited the fixture. Old Millfieldians were the opposition at Monmouth and the favour was returned as the Old Monmothians romped to victory chasing down 217 for the loss of just 3 wickets with 14 overs to spare. Oliver James, the star all rounder took 5 for 26 from his 10 overs and saw side home with 52* supported admirably by the powerful hitter, Jon Denning (69*). An away leg to the capital awaited the OM’s in the semi final as the faced Old Westminsters (Westminster School). Again the Club chased down the target of 143 in positive fashion on a difficult wicket losing 4 wickets in the process with 20 overs remaining to advance to the final against Old Hurst Jonians at Gerrards Cross CC being the neutral venue.
Hurst won the toss and rather surprisingly elected to bowl first on what was a very warm day in Bucks. The OM’s proceeded to pile the runs on with Glamorgan professional Jeremy Lawlor top scoring with a classy and at times belligerent 78. Jon Denning continued his fine form with the bat in smashing 76 off 52 balls including nine boundary 4’s and two 6’s and again Oli James reaffirmed his quality with a silky 67. After 49.3 overs, the Old Monmothians had posted an intimidating target of 322 all out. In reply Hurst always struggled to keep up with the rate as opening pair of Jon Denning and Andrew Leering bagged two wickets a piece and it was down to the whiley left arm spin of Gabriel Warwick to finish the opposition off as he finished with 4 for 33. Old Hurst Jonians were bowled out for 131 in 33.5 overs which saw the Old Monmothians home by 191 runs and winning The Cricketer Trophy for the first time.
