The top run-scorer in both formats of the game and emerged as a genuine match-winner for Casino.

Jamie Bennett, Pottsville

A clean hitter of the ball and one of the most dangerous cut shots in the competition.

He scored multiple centuries this season.

Jackson Agius, Murwillumbah

A big effort to score 587 runs in the top order with not much support around him in a struggling team.

Terry Murphy, Alstonville

Returned home after a season at Lennox Head and quickly became a vital part of the team.

He got through plenty of overs taking 26 wickets and made more of a contribution with the bat than previous seasons.

Great start to the season taking 16 wickets in the first three games.

Finished with 38 wickets and provided valuable experience in a young side.

Jason Caught, Lismore Workers

Named the Player of the Year in the competition having taken 39 wickets on his way to leading a returning Lismore Workers to the semi-finals.

A brilliant season considering he had spent a year out of the top grade and has had to overcome back and shoulder injuries in recent years.

Steve Robb, Alstonville

Tough slog for the returning left-arm spinner who bowled a total of 132 overs this season taking 32 wickets after a year out of the game.
