SANDHURST has dropped to the bottom rung on the latest BDCA Barry Ayres Spirit of Cricket Award.

The award is in its first season and is judged by the umpires on a points system across all four grades of first, second and third XI and under-18.

Teams are rated out of 10 on respect for umpires, how the captain conducts himself regarding his role in relation to the spirit of cricket, how co-operative the captain is regarding umpires directions, respect for the opposition and a general rating regarding conduct.

Each club’s four teams has its aggregate score each round averaged out.

The Dragons have replaced Huntly-North Epsom at the bottom of the ladder, while at the other end, Kangaroo Flat sits in top spot.

ALL-ROUNDER: Sandhurst’s Craig Howard has been one of the best-performed players this season. The Dragons aren’t performing so well in the Spirit of Cricket Award.
