Studley Royal CC member Ben Coad has been nominated for the Yorkshire County Cricket Club Player of the Year, an award which is voted for by members and supporters of the County and is deemed the Club's most prestigious prize. Voting closes at 5pm tomorrow (Friday 29th September) and votes can be cast here. The prize will be awarded at next Thursday's Gala Dinner.
Ben finished off his season in the defeat at Essex in the County Championship yesterday, but he achieved the personal milestone of 50 County Championship wickets for the season during the match at an average of 20.86, a fantastic achievement in his breakthrough season.
This morning Ben was also nominated for the Natwest PCA Young Player of the Year award, alongside Ashes-bound Somerset quick Craig Overton and Essex's Championship winning bowler Jamie Porter.
Ben is still heavily involved at Studley Royal and can often be seen at Monday night Tykes training to inspire the next superstag, when his calendar permits.
Good luck to Ben with his nominations, here's hoping he gets the recognition his fantastic season deserves!
