Damarell landed both the GCB Player of the Year trophy and the weekend league individual award, his highlights including a match-winning 112 off 112 balls in the GCA Cup Final for Cobo and 215 runs for Ravenscroft Independents in Evening League Division One.

On top of that, the left-hander amassed 127 runs in the short Isle of Man series including a match-winning 52 in the T20I game.

Mark Latter, chief executive at the GCB, said of Damarell’s recognition: ‘He worked hard across what was a unique season and when given the opportunity to play, grasped it fully. A consistent season saw him cement a place at the top of the order for the Greens.’

On the development side of the game, Tom Eisenhuth scooped the Alan Hamilton Memorial trophy for services to cricket.

The GCB CEO noted that the Elizabeth College head of PE had ‘worked tirelessly these past few years to re-energise and galvanise the College cricket scene’.

He added: ‘Partnering with GCB and getting Ben Ferbrache in to oversee cricket Elizabeth College had seen the 1st XI mature nicely.’

Eisenhuth has also overseen College becoming 2019 Bowl Champions, while at the same time providing huge support to Guernsey Cricket in hosting ICC competitions and always can be found at the end of a cover or on a roller or making lunch.
