John Hallam then went on to award the President's Award to Juli Pratt for her work with the team, in particular her pre-match fitness routines and physio role.

 

Club captain, Tom Mampilly, spoke of a disappointing season with regards to results but pointed out some of the highlights, not least the strong back-bone to the club, one of the oldest in Switzerland, with its many good traditions most commonly found in clubs from countries with more traditional cricketing backgrounds.
