Will Smeed wins Harry Burden Award
The Annual Harry Burden Memorial Lunch took place in the Long Room at the Cooper Associates County Ground yesterday (Thursday) and was a highly enjoyable and very successful occasion.
Following trustee Nigel Manley’s welcome, the 108 guests took part in Heads and Tails which was run by Andrew Moulding (Chairman of the Tony Coles Charitable Trust) who was ably assisted by Somerset Director of Cricket Andy Hurry.
Attendees then enjoyed a traditional Christmas Lunch that was once again of the highest quality.
Following lunch Peter Trego took part in an entertaining Q&A session which provided an interesting insight into life in the Somerset dressing room.
The Harry Burden Award for Young Cricketer of the Year was won by Will Smeed, who is currently out in Bangalore with the England Young Lions, and the trophy was received on his behalf by his father.
The Harry Burden Bursary, which is funded by Somerset County Sports, was won by James Hayes who plays his club cricket for Taunton and who is on the Richard Huish Academy.
An auction then took place and that raised over £1000 towards the Tony Coles Trust, after which the draw for the main raffle took place.
Andrew Moulding closed the event and thanked everybody for their attendance.Back to News
