The Dodgers Unofficial Awards 2003

A grand total of eleven (count 'em) people voted in the inaugural unofficial awards through the Dodgers website (you're reading it). A notable mention must go to Dirk Diggler for making the effort to vote. JC read out the awards at the AGM and Social but for those of you who couldn't make it here they are in full.

Champagne Moment of the Season

14 August v Ombudsman. Oppo batsman turning ball behind square straight to Will, 10 yds from bat. Calls "TWO!" and makes it easily

Nominations: Whitrod being hit for 4 consecutive fours by Stage Door Amanda, Creation of Dodgers website, No rain! and "I'm retiring" Neil Benn

Champagne Moment of All Time

The David Pope run out.

Nominations: Sian bowling Barry Gigg, Dave Sealey fielding the ball deep in the outfield and then accidentally throwing it over his shoulder and the boundary for 4 whilst attempting to return it to the keeper, summer without rain and "I'm out of retirement" - Neil Benn

Champagne Moment of All Time excl Pope

Ian Murray (worst cricketer of all time) catching Barry Gigg

Nominations: Tony Whitrod being bowled by Stage Door Amanda first ball, Imran Khan bowling Chris Tavaré - can't remember which one was playing for Dodgers, Picture of Mr. Doyle on his bike, "I'm out of retirement" Neil Benn, going to have to nominate my catch at slip from the 1st ball against BSI (I think). I guess I'm also bound to nominate my bowling Conway en route to 5-11 to beat the Rats a few years back. Sorry I can't think of any non-Benn ones!
