Graham Gorman, was awarded the Norman Harris Trophy for 2000

The Society’s Service to Cricket Award, 'The Norman Harris Trophy', has been awarded to Graham Gorman for his outstanding contribution to Glossop Cricket Club.

Graham made his debut in 1948 in a playing career spanning fifty-one years. He was team captain from 1982-1985. Graham also had a brief spell at Tintwistle Cricket Club.

Graham played a big part in establishing Glossop Cricket Club on a sound management footing. He has served on the management committee for the last ten years and is looked upon as a father figure by players who often seek his help and advice. He is in fact an unofficial team manager. He is delighted with the recent success of Glossop Cricket Club on the playing field and takes pleasure from the visits to North Road by the Derbyshire 2nd XI. Graham has worked so hard to bring this fixture to Glossop.

Graham is a founder member of the Society and served as treasurer for the first four years, his contribution to committee was much valued and appreciated. He organised our first cricket match v Wombwell Cricket Lovers’ at Kexborough, in fact he organised it so well he could not get in the team himself. Without doubt Graham Gorman is a worthy winner of this award.
