Annual Awards

Richard Morgan Memorial Award:

Best First Year Player

Meaning of the Award

The Richard Morgan Memorial Award is awarded to the best first year player at the club and named after former University Cricketer Richard Morgan.

 

On the night before the second day’s play of the match against Wanneroo at
James Oval in 1991-92 University’s fast bowler Richard Morgan accidentally
fell from the tower of St George’s College and was fatally injured.  He had
come to the club from Northam via Aquinas College and had made an immediate
impact with his pace bowling, achieving fearsome pace from a very short run
up.  On the first day of the match against Wanneroo he had the outstanding
future WA and Test batsman Damien Martyn caught behind for a duck, which had
been his only wicket for the innings.  He had been the top student in his
first year of Agricultural Science in 1989 and was about to start on his
honours year.  At the end of the season the club’s committee decided to
present a memorial award in Richard Morgan’s name to the best first year
player.  It is a perpetual trophy which features a stump that had been
broken by Morgan at training. 

The first winner was leg-spinner Tim Silinger, and some other winners who
have had significant careers with the club include Brad Hart, Matthew
Healey, Chis Rogers, Paul St Quintin, David Penter, Brett Jones, Scott
Marshall, Craig King, Viv Paver, Ashton Agar, David Moody and Josh
Dallimore.  The award was shared for the first time in 2017-18, with
Mitchell Drennan and Bailey Richards named as the joint winners.

202021 Winner of

 Richard Morgan Memorial Award

Bauer-Meyer Award Perpetual Trophy

Best Clubman

 Winners

2020-21 Mitchell Rosher

Meaning of the Award

This award recognises the club's greatest servant throughout the year. The renaming of this award, the 'Bauer-Meyer Perpetual Trophy', was undertaken by the club committee in 2021 to honour the extraordinary and continuous service two giants of the cricket club have made over several consecutive decades. 

 

Christian Bauer's service to UCC began as a player in 1990, broadening and morphing over the subsequent thirty years. Additional to a lengthy playing career across multiple grades was service as captain, committee member and treasurer, club coach, selector and delegate to the WACA. He remains in service today a committed steward of university's culture via positions on the committee and at the WADCC, where he also serves more broadly in the interest of Western Australian cricket. Christian is the Chairmen of the WADCC Board and is on the WACA board.

 

John Meyer's contribution is truly unique, not codified through formal title, though the consistency of his service has been felt and acknowledged by players and supporters alike for over 40 years. John is the undisputed authority on club history, and the embodiment of humble service to the club in sideline support. No-one has observed more A-grade cricket, home and away, for UCC, and he remains perhaps our most reliable conduit through which the university connects past, present and future. 

 

In recognition of his enormous body of work in optimising the club's apparel operation, improving committee coordination, and leading the implementation of various policies to improve the club's operations sustainably, the deserving 2020/21 winner of the Bauer-Meyer Perpetual Trophy is Mitchell Rosher.
