The BCB Special Achievement Award was awarded to Eldon Raynor, and a BCB spokesperson said, “Eldon Raynor was born April 26th, 1933. He was a one team man, having played cricket his entire life at Southampton Rangers. Eldon also served on the Southampton Rangers executive committee for numerous years, thus showing his loyalty to the club he loved.

“He first starting playing cricket at the age of nine and by the age of thirteen he was training and playing with Southampton Rangers senior team.

“Eldon played for Rangers in the Western Counties scoring an aggregate of 1096 runs and claiming 91 wickets. Eldon had a 6th wicket partnership of 124 runs with Sheridan Raynor in 1968. In 1974 he got a 7th wicket partnership record of 150 runs with John Tucker.

“Eldon’s first attempt to play Cup Match was at Somerset, but he was unsuccessful in making their team. The following year LLoyd James went to his house and put Eldon’s gearbag in his car and told him you are coming St. George’s with me and so he did. Eldon played for St. George’s from 1958-1979.

“Eldon would go on to get 33 wickets and score 738 runs in Cup Match at an average of 29.52. Eldon’s Cup Match career ended in 1979 after being struck in his head.

“In 1968 Eldon was voted cricketer of the year after having a stellar season. A few years later in 1972 Bermuda would have an international double wicket competition, with the likes of Gary Sobers, Sunil Gavaskar, Semore Nurse, Geoffrey Boycott and more pairing up with a local cricketer. Eldon Raynor and partner Semore Nurse won the first ever double wicket competition.

“Bermuda would play against Barbados in the first ever 3 day game in which he top scored for Bermuda scoring 75 runs. After the game the press wanted to talk to him about his score, but he choose to use that time to promote the 2 day game in Bermuda as he felt the longer version of the game would help improve cricket in Bermuda.
 
 Eldon put his success down to his preparation.

“He said whenever he had a big game he didn’t start preparing the night before the game, but weeks in advance. For him preparation is the key to success.

“Today Eldon is a lover of golf, as he can be seen playing on various golf courses and he is always keen to talk to and pass on knowledge to younger players who are keen to listen. It with great honour that I present Mr. Eldon Raynor with the BCB Special Achievement Award, sponsored by BELCO, for his contribution to cricket in Bermuda.”

The Logic 1st Division undefeated Champions were Western Stars Sports Club, and they received $750 towards 2016 BCB dues donated by Logic, while the Logic Premier Division Champions were Southampton Rangers Sports Club, who received $1000 for 2016 BCB dues donated by Logic.

The 2015 Chivas Team Sportsmanship Award as voted by the Umpires Association, went to PHC, which will receive 12 bottles of Chivas for the team.

The Bermuda Umpire’s Association spokesperson said, “They were very disciplined in the way they played this year with Captain Jaloni Albuoy and in their general deportment on the field. PHC accepted the Umpires decisions whether batting or bowling. We didn’t hear them speaking down to each other or saying derogatory comments to team mates or their opposition.

“PHC always put in the effort to play competitively right to the end even when losing. Coach Cal Waldron and the rest of the PHC coaching staff are to be commended for instilling the right mindset in the team to play the game the way it is meant to be played.”

The BCB Youth Program Award went to Cleveland County Cricket Club Youth Programme.

The Logic First Division MVP was Temiko Wilson of Western Stars, who received a $250 cash prize and six months of free internet donated by Logic Communications, while the Logic Premier Division MVP went to Dion Stovell of Southampton Rangers, who received a $500 cash prize and a year of free internet provided by Logic Communications.

    Splendid and congratulations to all.

    I understand that cricket is funded by the government and wonder what the annual amount is and how it is disbursed.

    • Varied says:

      You’d have to look up the budget from this year to see what each sport’s governing body received. More than a few got squat.

      For the record, cricket in Bermuda is also financially sponsored by more than a few businesses.
