Senior - Bowling - John Smyth Cup

Trophy/Honour Image

Not many records of the winners of the Senior bowling prior to 1945 survived into present day. From looking over the minutes from the Annual General Meetings the following information has been gathered.

It is unknown if any awards were presented to the players who had the best bowling average for the season as nothing is mentioned about trophies or awards.

During the early years of the club many 'outside matches' were played, that is matches against opposition outside the local club competition. It is unknown if the statistics below include these matches, but are listed here as they were stated in the minutes from the Annual General Meetings.

The John Smyth Cup is for the best Senior/ 1st XI bowler for the season. The Cup is named after John Smyth and was first presented in 1958-59 to Graham Cowles. Winners of this trophy are represented at King George Park, the home of the Union Cricket Club, with their name added to the seniors honours board along with the season. To be awarded this Cup the winner must have taken at least 20 senior wickets to qualify, then have the lowest average amongst those that have qualified.
