The Doug Rickarby Medal

Season 2013-14 sees the introduction of the Doug Rickarby Medal which will be awarded to the U18 player adjudged by the umpires to be the Player of the Year.

 

Doug Rickarby was an outstanding administrator within the Box Hill Reporter over many years at both club (Vermont) and association level. The naming of this award in his honour will serve not only as a testament to Doug’s commitment, strength and foresight for Junior cricket, but also as an example to all administrators that their efforts are acknowledged and appreciated.

 

Doug’s personal contributions have encompassed Junior cricket right across the spectrum from the introduction and leadership of the U10 competition right through to conceptualisation of the U18 Colts format which he envisaged as the “bridge” between U16 level and senior cricket for many kids. As he puts it

 

“I developed the initial proposals for Under 18’s, to forge a better and supportive pathway to retain more kids into adulthood, enjoying their cricket and developing maturity with their club as Adults.”

 

The proof of the success of Doug’s vision is seen by the elevation of the U18 competition as the Premier Junior Grade from this year and already the standard on display has been of the highest quality. The competition has grown as a vital transition stage between junior and senior sport and will continue to be a major catalyst to players continuing their cricket careers at senior club level.

 

Doug’s influence was not only restricted to the development of “Big Ideas”, he recognised the need to ensure that the basics were not ignored and his work in areas such as rules rationalisation, team grading and the setting of fixtures, form the grassroots of what we have in use today and we owe a great deal to his insight and perseverance often against the odds to “get it right”

 

The Doug Rickarby Medal will be presented following a vote count at the Junior Presentation Night each season. Winners of the Medal will be recognised as the Box Hill Reporter and District Cricket Assn Junior Player of the Year.
