A-list graces red carpet in array of Top Man shirts

Michael Munday, Richie Oliver and James Brickley won the top gongs at the 2018 End of Season Awards on Friday amid much joviality and a surprising amount of earnestness.
Oliver - who was ordained at the event as next year's 1s skipper - won club player of the year, having racked up a whopping 1114 runs in all formats.
Munday scooped 1s player of the year after taking 55 wickets in his first season and he also won best individual performance in a match for his astounding 6-10 to clinch a tie defending 76 against East Molesey.
Munday beat, among others, a barnstorming 153* from Oliver, league six-fors for Mobeen Tahir (2s) and Nick Gavigan (3s), and two centuries each for Lady Lamas Amy Gordon and Sophie Pout.
The night also saw 3s' all-time leading wicket taker, longest serving captain, St. Alban’s Rd groundsman/saviour, committee member and all-round club stalwart James Brickley awarded the prestigious Ellen Bush Trophy for services to the club.
“I should have won it years ago,” he humbly said after about eight pints of Progress.

Other winners on the night:
Ladies player of the year: Claudie Cooper
2s player of the year: Matt Hutcheon
3s player of the year: Steve Cross
4s player of the year: Rhys Fletcher
5s player of the year: Sam Gregson
VI-Kings player of the year: Geoff Chay
Cavs player of the year: Manoj Rajarethinam
Wally award: Ant Ireland
