  3. Men’s cricket cleans up at Grade Premiers Dinner

Sydney University Cricket Club (SUCC) had a bumper night at the 2012 Sydney Cricket Association annual Grade Premiers Dinner on Friday night at Darling Harbour, taking home a number of team and individual trophies.

SUCC were officially presented with the Belvidere (1st Grade Premiership) Cup and Albert Cup (2nd Grade) trophies.

Greg Mail was formally presented with the O’Reilly Medal, the most prestigious individual award, the recipient being the Sydney Grade cricketer of the year (points are awarded by the umpires).

Mail had a stellar 2011/12 Sydney Grade Cricket season –  after breaking the all-time run scoring record in 1st Grade in the 119 year history of Sydney Grade cricket, surpassing the mark set by former team mate Greg Hayne.

It is the second time in three years that Mail has won the O’Reilly Medal.

Mail was also named 1st Grade Captain of the Year, as was Tom Kierath – the 2nd Grade Captain of the year.

Stuart Clark also received his Benaud Medal, as Player of the 1st Grade Final.
