Alex Davies named Lancashire's 2020 Player of the Year
The wicketkeeper came out on top of the vote to win the main prize for the first time at the Player of the Year Awards
Alex Davies scooped Lancashire Cricket’s Player of the Year as the Club’s virtual awards evening brought down the curtain on 2020.
Davies, 26, won the main prize for the first time after winning a vote by the Club’s Members and supporters.
The right-hander finished as leading run-scorer in both the Bob Willis Trophy and Vitality Blast, topping the charts in the latter competition for the third successive season.
Both of his high scores came against Derbyshire, scoring a fluent 86 in the second innings during the Bob Willis Trophy game at Liverpool little over a week after smashing 82 against the same side in the televised Vitality Blast match at Headingley.
Two further half-centuries in T20 cricket took his tally to 299 runs in ten innings, while 337 First-Class runs came at an average just shy of 50.
A total of 12 T20 dismissals was more than any other wicketkeeper in Vitality Blast, with seven more catches in First-Class matches, and he added two run-outs in the thrilling win over rivals Yorkshire Vikings at Emirates Old Trafford.
For an excellent maiden season in First-Class cricket Tom Hartley was awarded Young Player of the Year, again voted for by Members and supporters.
Hartley played an influential role in the Vitality Blast side that reached Finals Day, taking six wickets and going at little over a run-a-ball.
The 22-year-old added six wickets in five Bob Willis Trophy matches and pulled off a series of memorable one-handed catches in both formats, taking stunners in both matches away at Yorkshire and adding another against Derbyshire at Liverpool.
Nat Brown was the Women’s Player of the Year, as voted for by the Thunder players that represented Lancashire, Cumbria and Cheshire in the inaugural Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Trophy.
Brown was the leading run-scorer, amassing 189 runs in six matches, and added four wickets as Thunder won two out of their six group matches with an emerging young side.
