James Ford picks up champion’s trophy and captain’s award at Devon League awards evening

BIDEFORD skipper James Ford had two trophies to collect at the Francis Clark Devon League awards evening.

The presentations took place immediately after the competition’s annual meeting at the Exeter Court Hotel in Kenford.

Ford led Bideford to the C Division title and went along as captain to pick up the champion’s trophy.

Captains are marked by umpires over the season and Ford topped that table as well, which meant another trip back to the prize table.

The annual meeting portion of the evening largely rubber stamped changes to the committee and minor rule changes.

The new secretary is former ECB staff member Ed Leverton, who replaces Geoff Coish following his retirement last year.

Coish was presented with a cricket bat signed by Aussie fast bowling legend Jeff Thompson and the league’s services to cricket trophy in recognition of his 13 years in the post.

A vote on which balls should be used in Premier and A Division 2nd XI games had to be re-run after confusion arose over what clubs were voting for – and whether they needed a vote at all!

Proposals to change the way targets are calculated using run-rate in games delayed by rain were shelved for 12 months.
