Woodhall Spa wicket keep Jack Hughes was among the trophies at the Lincolnshire ECB cricket awards.

Youngster Hughes won the wicketkeeping award for his performances behind the stumps for the league runners-up.

He also picked up the Mike Molloy Trophy for the Young Player of the Year.

The Spa club was also recognised for its excellent playing facilities when it was awarded the Terry Bates Trophy for groundsmanship.

The Ann Boulton Services to Cricket Award went to the club’s Nigel Salmon and Neil Timby was on hand to pick up the league runners-up trophy after they were pipped to the crown by Sleaford on the last day of the 2013 season.

The trophies were presented by former Lancashire, Durham and England left arm bat Graeme ‘Foxy’ Fowler, who entertained the 100 or so guests with his stories of, among other things, touring with England in the 1980s.

Fowler, the first England player to score a test double century, is also famous for being the only player to score two complete centuries with the aid of a runner.

He played 21 test matches and 26 One Day Internationals for his country.
