The Poole Town 3rd XI Opposition Tea of the Year


Beaminster 1st XI, 1st June 2006

By all accounts a poor selection when it was laid out, but the home side dug in anyway as Triangle toiled in the field on a baking hot afternoon. There was barely enough left for the visiting players, while the umpires and scorers got the slimmest of pickings.

The Excuse of the Year


Grant Neven

During the final Saturday 1st XI game of the season away to Sherborne, a freak gust of wind blew up a cloud of dust, blinded our hero and made him step away from his position behind the stumps. This caused him to miss the ball and thus led to the concession of byes and an argument with the umpires where he tried to get them to play a let.

Grant Neven – Pulled out of the final Sunday 1st XI game to save himself from likelihood of suffering a career-threatening injury and also so he wouldn't miss out on playing in the Dorset Legends game the following Saturday – which was of course was then rained off.

The Daniel Jones Umpiring Award


Grant Neven

Raised his finger immediately for a close run out decision against Lytchett Minster, without moving from behind the stumps at the non-striker's end

Tony Quayle – Leant around the bowler, who was obstructing his view, to give an LBW decision.

The Self-Publicity Award


Grant Neven

For numerous photo calls in the Dorset Echo and also the write-up of the Sunday 1st XI's win against Swanage, titled “Neven Saves Triangle With Sunday Best”
