It was a season which promised much for YMCA, but a succession of injuries to key players coupled with availability problems meant it was mid-table mediocrity for them.

They finished fifth in the Premier League and their best showing in the various cup competitions was a semi-final berth in the T20 Alan Murray cup.

Simi Singh topped their batting chart despite missing half of the campaign. Singh - who announced his departure at the weekend - hit 512 runs at a healthy average of 56.89, which included one century and four 50's.

Harry Tector hit 426 runs at 30.43, a fraction ahead of elder sibling Jack, with 422 at 30.14, althpugh Jack did score the only other senior hundred.

Oliver Gunning promised much but will have been disappointed that he could only make 355 runs at 19.72 - there's more to come from him one feels.

Bobby Gamble (184) and Sam Murphy (174) both averaged 15.

Jarred Barnes was the stand-out performer with the ball, as he bagged 31 wickets at 16.87.

Padraic Flanagan was some way behind on 17 at 21, while Harry Tector (16), Simi Singh (14), Asher Abassi (11) and overseas player James Parkinson (10) reached double figures.

Parkinson's return was a major disappointment, as was that of Bobby Gamble, who managed just four wickets in 17 matches.

There's no doubt that YMCA will bounce back in 2019 as they look to strengthen their senior squad to complement their undoubted riches at youth level.
