Brigade captain Andy Britton was named the North West Player of the Year at the annual Awards Dinner in Eglinton.

Britton took 37 wickets - the most by an Ireland-qualified player - and hit 484 runs at an average of 38 to scoop the prestigious Radio Foyle Award. His North West Warriors team-mate David Scanlon received the Michael Bannigan Trophy, for the Players' Player of the Year.

Scanlon took 23 wickets at 17 each for Bready, who won the first league title in their history, as well as 19 first class wickets for the North West Warriors.

Britton also picked up the Premiership bowling award while the while the top batsman was Strabane's Aaron Gillespie.

The Warriors Player of the Year was William Porterfield, the Ireland captain, who scored 828 runs across all three formats in his first full season of inter-provincial cricket, which included his career best 207, against Leinster Lightning at Magheramason.

Warriors Head Coach Ian McGregor picked up the Coach of the Year after guiding the team to their first Championship title, ending Leinster Leinster's five-year reign in three-day cricket.

The Fair Play award was won by Michael Rankin of St Johnston who, in a crucial league match, admitted he failed to hold a catch on the boundary, ruling that he had stepped on the boundary rope and conceding a six, while "Mr Bready", Harry Rutherford, was a popular and deserved recipient of the ClubMan of the Year trophy

There were two inductees into the Hall of Fame, former international umpire, groundsman and Donemana player Davy Caldwell who celebrated his 80th birthday last year and Lexie Millar, after a lifetime as office-bearer in the Derry Midweek League.

Meanwhile, in a shock development, the six Cricket Development officers employed by Cricket Ireland yesterday lost their jobs with their roles handed back to the four provincial unions.

It is not yet certain if the North West's Brian Allen and Colin Manson, NCU's Nigel Jones and Simon Johnston, Leinster's Brian O'Rourke and Jim Doran in Munster will be automatically retained and paid by the unions or if the jobs will be re-advertised, almost certainly with a reduction in pay.
