PRT made a rare trip to the annual DCL awards ceremony to pick up some silverware
Representatives of PRT attended the annual awards ceremony on 30th October, at The Leaze, Wimborne.
1st XI captain Matt Randell, accompanied by veteran stalwart Simon Barrett collected the Division 2 Champions Trophy.
Olly Whisker collected the Division 5 runners-up award. The 2nds got a special mention (but no trophy) as the only side in the league not to fall fowl of the weather last season, which was nice.
Simon Proffitt won the League's Outstanding Performance award, which was presented and collected by club chairman John Walker.
A message from the current secretary, Olly Whisker:
"PRTCC's AGM this year is at the Portland YMCA, Reforne, from 7pm-9pm on the 24TH NOVEMBER. It is IMPERATIVE that members attend to show solidarity and have a say in the club's future.
Biscuits will be provided!"

Thanks to a booking error, Triangle hosted 2 touring sides for an inaugural one-day tournament.
Triangle's 1st Annual F15 tournament took place at a windy Reforne (J Walker take note), as we hosted visitors Cricklade CC & Shirley CC for a 15 over (8 ball overs) event.
Triangle faced off against Cricklade first, putting on 163/6 with Matt Barrett (38), Simon Barrett (30), Matt Randell (30) and Rich Samuel (27) all contributing runs.
A dashing innings of 52 from Mills before he retired put Cricklade in contention, but the introduction of Matt Barrett (3/15) saw the visitors fall 18 runs short.
Shirley then faced off against Cricklade, restricting them to 82/4 after openers Gillmore (24) & Dunham (19) had been dismissed. Shirley made short work of the run chase reaching the target in the 8th over, Coombs (32) top-scoring.
This left PRT vs Shirley for the tournamnet, with Triangle posting 112 thanks to Matt Randell (42) and Matt Barrett (23). Shirley's Sam Whitby led the chase, eventually retiring on 51 but the damage had been done, and the visitors cruised to the win in the 13th over.
Triangle held its annual awards ceremony at The Blues Club.
Once again most of the Triangle players gathered to celebrate the season and hand out some awards.
Simon Proffitt collected the Saturday 1st XI Batting and Bowling honours, with Simon Barrett being awarded the Captain's Award.
George Munro's brief outline of the season was followed by Ryan Price picking up the Batting Award along with Captain's player, and Jack Marsh received the bowling trophy.
The Sunday side's batting award went to Matt Randell, bowling to Nathan Cornish, and Ryley Marsh was the choice for Captain's Player.
In the club awards section, Jack Marsh and Simon Barrett shared the Players Player award the voting was a split decision. Amy Biddle was given the Clubman award for her efforts on the fundraising committee, with Ryley Marsh scooping Young Clubman.
Joe Adkins received the Martin Hewson Award for best performance by a younth player, for his match-saving innings against Ferndown Wayfarers.
After leading the 1st XI's celebrations, PRT's boffins have been hard at work deciphering the scorer's records...
Simon Proffitt proved to be the star of the team leading the batting and bowling charts. He hit 540 runs, averaging 49.09 with 3 centuries. He also took 42 wickets at 9.17 each, including 4 5 wicket hauls and a best of 7/34.
Behind him in the run charts was skipper Matt Randell, who scored 336 runs at 24.00 with one century; followed by Callan Laws (201 runs at 16.75, 1 fifty).
Matt Barrett followed close behind Proffitt with 31 wickets at 11.52, and also hit 132 runs at 44.00 (5 NOs). Simon Barrett (18 at 5.67), Matt Randell (13 at 18.54), Jon Cameron (11 at 25.55) and Rich Samuel (10 at 23.10) showed the strength of the 1st XI's bowling this season.
