The most prestigious club award for overall club excellence (Petersen Shield) was taken out this season by the Riccarton Cricket Club following a number of strong performances across the grades. Marist Harewood (Premier) and Sumner (Senior A) claimed the awards for the best attitude towards the spirit of the game, dress and behaviour, as voted by the umpires while Halswell and Marist Harewood were presented with Club Mark awards.

St Albans players took out the main individual awards for both men and women with Amy Satterthwaite backing up her outstanding representative season by claiming the women’s cricketer of the year, and Ben Langrope claiming the equivalent men’s prize after an outstanding all round season.
