(Runner-UP: Stuart Sergeant – Old Reigatians Hockey Club)
Richard is Merstham Cricket Club. He is a man of many roles at the club for which without him we would really struggle. Along with being Club Captain, he is Vice Chairman, head of juniors, head coach, team secretary, bar man, and social manager. Along with this he goes into local schools to help with junior player recruitment. He played as a colt at the age of 11 and has been with the club ever since. He helps with the disability squad and has progressed the club’s girls development along with the junior sides. He will often be at the club trying to make sure it’s ready for games.
Our warmest thanks to Reigate & Banstead Borough Council for sponsoring this award.
