It was a disappointing season for Fox Lodge, who were relegated after finishing bottom of the Premiership table.

Looking at the stats, they were too reliant on overseas professional Cebo Tshiki and former Ireland A international Brian Allen for their runs, while none of the bowlers managed to take 20 wickets.

South African Tshiki was the leading run scorer in the NW, hitting two centuries and six 50's on his way to 892 runs at 52.47.

Brian Allen also hit six fifties in making 594 runs at 39.60, which was enough to finish in 9th in the NW run charts.

The club had two other centurions - Jason Milligan and Barry Scott - who made 366 runs at 26.14, and 307 at 19.19 respectively.

The bowling stats make for pretty poor viewing with nobody featuring in the top 20 of the NW charts.

Six players made it to double figures, with Adam Walker's 17 the best, coming at a cost of 35.59 apiece.

Aaron Heywood's 16 cost 35.94, while Tshiki had a five-wicket haul amongst his 15 at 27 apiece.

Others worthy of a mention are Lee Finlay (13), Jamie McIntyre (13) and Jason Milligan (12).

There's no doubt that Fox Lodge have a crop of excellent youngsters who will have benefitted from exposure at the highest level.

They have solid foundations in place and it won't be too long before they are back in the top flight of NW cricket.
