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.

Congratulations to them both.
