Year: 2009
Awarded to: Freddie Eburah

Freedie joined Moseley in season 2008 after representing youth teams at Northamptonshire, captaining Sheffield Hallam University and playing for 5 years in the Birmingham Premier League at Coventry and North Warwickshire. Following Coventry's relegation Freddie moved to Moseley, where he enjoyed a successful first season taking 37 league wickets, including his best league figures to date of 6-10 against Wolverhampton.

2009 saw the seamer build on this to begin taking wickets more consistently for Moseley, claiming 49 league wickets over the season at an average of 14.7. His outstanding contribution was part of a potent bowling attack that regularly won games in the league last season by bowling second. This included two 6 wicket hauls (both against Bromsgrove), the latter of which included a hat-trick as the Griffins ripped through the opposition for 66. Although these were Freddies standout performances it was the consistency of his wicket taking that impressed, adding to this 5 other 4 wicket hauls, as he worked through more than 240 overs in the league last season. 2009 also saw Freddie snapped up by Herefordshire, as he represented them in both Minor Counties 1- day and 3- day competitions.

Freddie moves into the position of Vice-Captain for Moseley next season, as he will look to continue his influence on a young team searching for more consistent league success in 2010.
