This year, a special extra presentation was made. George Pardoe (Bashley U15 & Hampshire County) had been given brand new cricket bag at the Bunbury Cricket Festival earlier this summer. He wanted to present it as an encouragement to an U9 player starting out in their cricket development, and the presentation was made to a very happy Oliver Webb
