Cameron takes out Una Paisley Award

Plenty Valley's Jessica Cameron has taken out the 2010/11 Una Paisley award at Friday night's VWCA Presentation Night.

Hosted by Pete Lazer, the event was held at Moonee Valley Racing Club and attended by over 220 people. 

Cameron hit the lead early in the count and was never troubled from there finishing on 31 votes, six votes clear of Brunswick Park's Elyse Villani. Box Hill's Meg Lanning finished the count strong to take 3rd place on 23 votes.

Cameron had an outstanding debut season for Plenty Valley, the wicket keeper/bat scored 512 runs at an average of 64, hitting five 50s and one century along the way.

The night began with the announcement of two newly named awards.

VWCA Life Members Sue Woolcock and Julie Jones were honoured with the naming of two Premier Seconds awards.

The award for the Most Consistent Premier Seconds player has been named the Sue Woolcock Award whilst the Premier Seconds Premiership Cup was named The Julie Jones Trophy.

The inaugural winner of the Sue Woolcock Award was Coburg's Moelagi Tuilagi. A great all round season by Tuilagi saw her score 204 runs and take 19 wickets, the highest in the Premier Seconds competition. Tuilagi took out the award just one vote ahead of teammate Lyndal McMaster and three votes clear of Brown Hill's Briony Polkinghorne. 

A Premier Firsts Team of the Year was named for the third time with six first time selections. Box Hill and DEC Spirit skipper Rachael Haynes was named Captain of the team.

The Frank McDonald Award for the Most Promising Schoolgirl went to Brittany McVeigh from Box Hill whilst Brighton District's Jenny Riley took out the June Cole Award for the Best First Year Premier Firsts Player

Newcomers Melton Cricket Club were awarded the Home Ground Advantage Spirit of Cricket Award in just their first VWCA season. The Jill Crowther Award for the Best Administered Club went to the Coburg Cricket Club after a season which saw the club go from wooden spooners to minor Premiers.
