Player Awards

Brian O'Connor Award

This award is presented at the End-of-Season Presentation in memory of Brian O’Connor, who was tragically killed at just 12.  Brian was a real trier who put everything into cricket and simply loved to play the game.  This award recognises an U/12 who displays these attributes and sets an example for others.

Gordon Watson Award

This award is presented to the Junior Club Champion at the End-of-Season Presentation.  It is named in recognition of Gordon Watson – for his achievements and his wonderful service to cricket over many years. All junior players are eligible to receive this award and it is calculated on a points-based system.

Buckingham Trophy

The Buckingham Trophy is named after the husband and wife team who started our Club. Jim and Leila Buckingham. Jim and Leila were the true pioneers of our Club. From 1984 onwards, they quite literally created a cricket club where there was none before. And since that time, thanks to their tireless efforts through those all-important foundation years, thousands of children have been able to play cricket for QRJCC.

 

The Buckingham Trophy is presented to the club's Champion Female Player in Under 13s and above. Points are accumulated from runs scored, wickets taken and catches, run outs and stumpings during the course of the season. 

QRJCC 50 and 100 Game Milestone Medals

Playing 50 or 100 games for the a Junior Club is a very significant achievement in any sport. At the Quinns Rocks Junior Cricket Club we recognise these important milestones with specially engraved medallions which are presented to the player on the day of their milestone match.

QRJCC Junior Life Membership

This award is presented to those Juniors who play 80 or more games for the Quinns Rocks Junior Cricket Club. This is a highly prestigious award given in recognition of the many years of dedicated service and commitment given by those players who attain this milestone.

QRJCC Volunteer Awards

Each season we make sure that we recognise the efforts of the many volunteers who help out. Our ‘Coach of the Year’, ‘Team Manager of the Year’ and ‘Club Person of the Year’ are awarded each year at our Season Wind-Up. The efforts of these people are reflective of the team effort that it takes to run our Club.

QRJCC Life Membership

From time to time our Club also bestows Life Membership upon volunteers who have made a significant contribution over a long period of time. Given our close links with the Senior Club, and thanks to a long-standing tradition, a Life Member of either Club instantly becomes a Life Member of both Clubs.
