QUINNS Rocks Ju­nior Cricket Club re­ceived three awards, in­clud­ing club of the year, at the Com­mu­nity Ju­nior Cricket Coun­cil pre­sen­ta­tions re­cently.

About 200 peo­ple, in­clud­ing WA Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive Christina Matthews and Western War­riors Ja­son Behren­dorff and David Moody, at­tended the March 14 func­tion at the WACA.

The Quinns club re­ceived the Len Pavy club of the year award, along with the ‘Grow­ing cricket for girls’ award, hav­ing gone from no girls-only teams in the 2016-17 sea­son to two a year later.

Ste­wart O’Con­nor was also named club co-or­di­na­tor of the year, hav­ing won the MILO in­2CRICKET Co-or­di­na­tor of the Year award last year.

Com­mu­nity Ju­nior Cricket Coun­cil chair­man Ge­off Parkin­son said Quinns Rocks had been ac­knowl­edged for tak­ing a proac­tive ap­proach across a wide range of ar­eas.

“Quinns Rocks has been very ac­tive in pro­mot­ing the game within the com­mu­nity,” he said.

“The club has also fos­tered re­la­tion­ships with newly es­tab­lished clubs in their area to sup­port their de­vel­op­ment, along with clubs in other re­gions.”

Pres­i­dent Daniel Shor­till said the club’s suc­cess re­sulted from its mem­bers’ ef­forts to en­sure the club’s 251 mem­bers could play cricket in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.
