wscc team of the year

Established in season 2008-09, the Western Suburbs Cricket Club Team of the Year was the first award of its kind in the club that recognised contributions to a team performance in that player's role - rather than based on statistics. The team is selected by all senior captains and the club coach, with a chairman conducting the selection process at the captain's dinner at the conclusion of each season.

Selections are based simply on the concept of "Who have been the best openers/spinner/opening bowlers etc. this season?" and aims to fill the voids from the past where players with great seasons have moved up grades and not spent enough time in a grade to win the batting/bowling awards in that grade.

From the inception of the award, Farrow Wyatt Chartered Accountants have proudly sponsored the award. They still continue that strong partnership with Western Suburbs now, under the name of Pitcher Partners.
