KEVIN McDermott better have plenty of room on his trophy shelf at home.

The Hepworth & Idle all-rounder will be picking up no less than FIVE individual awards at the Bradford & District Evening League finals day on Bank Holiday Monday at Great Horton Park Chapel.

He has won the league batting award (Barlow Trophy), the Division Two batting award, the league bowling award (Waddilove Trophy), the Division Two bowling award and the league fielding prize (LB Briggs Trophy).

What is left over is the Division One batting award (Richard Wear of Denholme) and the league's wicket-keeping prize (Dom Bennett of Crossflatts winning the Steve Priestley Trophy), while no-one qualified for the Division One bowling award as no information was provided by the clubs.

Of course, the main business of the day at Ewart Street is not the handing out of individual trophies but the semi-finals and finals.

Ther first game is between Division Two champions Hepworth & Idle and Division One runners-up, the Adil Rashid Cricket Academy (11am).  

Hepworth & Idle will be hoping for a big game from their aforementioned McDermott.

The Academy, on the other hand, will be relying more on the strength in depth of their young side, but also have the experience of the likes of Amar Rashid from East Bierley.

Following them at about 1.30pm is the second semi-final between Division One champions Ciroc and Division Two runners-up John Breare.

Ciroc, who secured the championship on the final day of the season at their first attempt in only their second season in the league, are packed with Bradford League players such as Fahid Rehman, Awais Ejaz, Tuseif Arshad (all East Bierley), Kez Ahmed (Woodlands) and Yasir Ali (Scholes), as well as the experienced Mushy Shah from Bilton.

They are also the defending Les Benson Memorial Trophy, with the play-off champions having defeated Mayfield in last year’s final.

John Breare, on the other hand, are experiencing somewhat of a resurgence.

With over 40 years’ service, printing company Breare are the longest serving club in the league, but this will only be their third appearance on finals day and they have never progressed to the final itself.

They have many long-serving players who will always turn out when asked, such as Steve Tinsley (40), Andy Simpson (40), Gary Tinsley (39), Jonathan Ross (30) and Peter Kempton (30) – the figures in brackets are the number of seasons they have been with the club, rather than their ages.

Win or lose, they always insist that their players stay for a drink after the game, and finals day will be no different!

The final will start at about 4.30pm, with the individual trophies being presented during the day.

Umpiring duties will be shared between Graham Langton, Peter Wilkes and John Raper.

Great Horton Park Chapel will be providing food and refreshments during the day for what is the league's main fund-raiser, so everyone's support would be appreciated.

Entry is free.
