West Vancouver Cricket Club Year End Awards 2007

Nov 3, 2007

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


Many of us don't know enough about it, but the sport of cricket has a long history here on the North Shore. The West Vancouver Cricket Club, formed back in 1955, had one of the largest junior programs in B.C. and every year the number of teams increase. Playing on one of Canada's top rated fields (Hugo Ray Park) certainly helps, so it's no wonder they have produced Canadian league players and BC Division champions year after year. This past weekend, it was the 2007 Awards Banquet where player trophies were handed out and devotees to this often overlooked sport were honoured.
