Cambridge Junior Cricket Club’s 12 junior hardball teams, which play in a Waikato competition, wrapped up their season with prizegiving at Cambridge Baptist Church on Saturday afternoon.

Zak Anderson took out the premium award, Cambridge Club Member of the Year, for his contribution to his team both on and off the field.

“Zak is a real team player who helps and supports his mates and a coach’s dream – polite, respectful and eager to learn,” junior cricket coordinator Steve Carter said.

Earlier in the day, many year 8 players said goodbye to the junior club as they played their last games before heading off to high school.
