The Under 11A side lost just once during the season and finished second behind Fordingbridge. The Player of the Year Trophy was awarded to captain Aidan Lindsay-Wood who led from the front with his stylish batting and infectious enthusiasm. The Most Improved Player award went to Tim Breach who established himself as a prolific wicket-taking off-spinner.

Despite failing to win any matches, the young Under 11B team showed plenty of effort and determination and improved steadily as the season progressed. The Player of the Year award went to David Cureton whose dogged approach to batting made him the team's most reliable batsman. Alan Maher was given the Most Improved Player award. His bowling improved greatly during the summer and he too learned to value his wicket. Alan also rarely missed a match or training session throughout the summer.

Following the presentations coach Tony Thorp received a surprise cake to mark his 40th birthday, while an impromptu cricket quiz was won by the Old Fogey's team. For those who may have left the quiz early, we can now reveal that Mark Gannaway's middle name is in fact Eric, and not Ethelred, Egbert or Elvis. An ingenious spot-the-ball competition, organised by Ron Newton, was won by the rather surprised MC, and the evening closed with the Chairman thanking the Colts sponsors Source for their generous donation which had enabled the club to buy smart new shirts for all the lads.
