CHRIS RUSHWORTH capped a fantastic season with four awards at Durham’s 2018 Player of the Year Dinner held at the Hilton Hotel, Gateshead.

The 32-year-old’s haul included the headline award, Player of the Year, as voted for by the Club’s Members.

Rushworth also picked up the Players Player of the Year, Bowler of the Year and Champagne Moment of the Year after a successful season with the ball that saw him surpass 400 first-class wickets for Durham, including a destructive 12 wicket haul against Sussex at Chester-le-Street.

The latter was voted on social media as the supporters’ Champagne Moment of the Year, finishing ahead of Liam Trevaskis’ sensational final over against Lancashire at Old Trafford and James Weighell’s dramatic seven wicket-haul that saw Durham defeat Leicestershire at Emirates Riverside.

Rushworth added 60 first-class, 9 List A and 11 Vitality Blast wickets during 2018, taking his overall total to 602 overall scalps for Durham County Cricket Club.

The Batsman of the Year was awarded to Tom Latham who scored 366 first-class runs including an excellent 147 against Gloucestershire.

The Breakthrough Player of the Year award was awarded to Matt Salisbury after a sensational debut season for the club that saw the 25-year-old take 44 first-class wickets.

Stuart Poynter was awarded Fielder of the Year for his exceptional glovework behind the stumps all season.

Liam Trevaskis and Scott Steel shared the Second XI Player of the Year after both had a prolific year for Neil Killeen’s side.

The Community Player of the Year was handed to Cameron Steel for his outstanding support of Durham CCC’s Foundation throughout the season.
