Taverners Cricket Memorial Trophy
Taverners Cricket Club had two golf trophies and a trophy for insidious performance for many years. The players sacrifice a lot to practise hard every second week throughout the long Winnipeg winter, to be ready and in top shape for the cricket in the summer.
It was time to acknowledge actual cricket achievements that occurs during the real cricket season in the summer. In 2014 the Captain Hein Peters donated the “Taverners Cricket Memorial Trophy” , to be awarded for the most memorable cricket achievement, if any, of the season. The Captain and President will decide the winner at the end of the season. If their aging memories let them down, the trophy will go to someone or something that is somehow related to cricket.
