Thursday 9th February saw the 2016 holding of the Annual Dinner at the East India Club.
Over 40 members and guests enjoyed the traditional Buccs’ dinner hosted by President Simon Woolfries, famously finished off with treacle pudding and custard.
Responding on behalf of the guests was Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack Editor Lawrence Booth.
Lawrence entertained the room with tales of Wisden’s history, confided how he had broken the scoop of KP’s textgate indiscretions and gave his predictions on the future of the game.
As well as reviewing the 2016 season and averages (found here), Simon announced the winner of the Geoffrey Moore Award for the year – Simon Leefe.
Simon also made a special Lifetime Achievement presentation to Richard Gwynn.
The Hack received a framed photograph of him in full flow (on the field) at Albury in 2001 (4-28 that day) with his Buccaneers career statistics.
Buccaneers remained for quite a while in the American Bar after the Dinner.
