The High Peak Cricket Society is pleased to announce that 'The Geoffrey Woolley Trophy', sponsored by 'owzat-cricket' was awarded to Will Freeman.

The photo shows Will receiving the trophy from Lucy Pearson.

Will is a right hand, top order batsman & right arm off spin bowler. He has played for Birch Vale & Thornsett Cricket since being an under 11. He progressed through the age groups and made his 2nd X1 senior debut at Compstall in 2008 taking a wicket in his first over of off spin.

At the age of 14 he became a regular member of the 2nd XI in 2009 and also made his debut in the 1st X1.

However, it was the season 2010 when Will made big strides. He was a member of the all conquering High Peak District under 15's team who beat all the other 6 Derbyshire District teams.

For his club side (Birch Vale) he scored 800 runs including a 50 in the under 16's Cup Competition, 2 x 50's in the 2nd XI and a 110 (his maiden century) in the 2nd X1 Cup Competition. He just failed to register 50 wickets (49) in all competitions with his right arm off spin.

A great future beckons for Will in the game. He has a tremendous attitude and a maturity beyond his years.
