There were a few new faces for CSNI, who came close to silverware in the T20 competition, but didn't enjoy the best of league campaigns, where they won only six of their fourteen matches.

On the bowling front Ben Adair topped the wicket taking charts with a haul of 35 wickets at 21.69, while all-rounder Luke Georgeson from New Zealand took 33 wickets at 23.58.

Matthew Foster and Ben Mackey took 26 wickets at 23.04 and 21 wickets at 24 respectively, and the pair were two of the five bowlers at the club who managed five wicket hauls or better.

Stuart Thompson's 17 wickets cost over 37 apiece, while it's perhaps surprising to see that newly capped international Ben White only managed eight wickets at 36.

On the batting front Georgeson was the stand-out performer as he piled up 880 runs at 55, which included one hundred and seven half centuries.

Ross Adair wasn't far behind as he hit 873 runs and a rapid strike rate of 125 and averaging over 43 - on his day there are few more destructive batters in the region.

Stuart Thompson showed his quality on occasions as he made 622 at 32, while Gary Wilson averaged 48.78 as he totaled 439 runs despite missing ten matches.

Paddy Beverland was another centurion as he made 353 runs at 25.2, while Andrew Cowden also passed the 200 mark on his way to 257 at 28.56.

There is a very successful youth set-up at the club, and I've no doubt that the crop of talented players will continue to be integrated into the senior ranks over the coming years which augurs well for success.
