Master and Bopara take awards

DAVID Masters and Ravi Bopara won the Essex Boundary Club Trophies for taking the most wickets and scoring the highest number of runs respectively during all Essex first team matches from the April 2 to August 29 2011.

Masters claimed 92 wickets which was 38 ahead of Tim Phillips (54) while Bopara (1,246 runs) pipped James Foster (1,221) by just 25 runs.

These awards are run in conjunction with the Essex Boundary Club’s Bonanza competition – a grand draw which paid out �1,000 in prize money in 2011.

Essex members and supporters entered the raffle in the hope of being paired with one of the Essex contracted playing staff.

Stage two was for the cash prizes and Christine Ward of Canvey Island was lucky enough to draw Masters and Mr Mark Thomas of Cambridge was paired with Bopara.
