Thomas earns his spurs
The Cockspur Club Cricketer of the Month award returns for its third year as club cricketers get the chance to see their names in the pages of the Wisden Cricketer magazine.
Mark Thomas won the May award for scores of 141, 162 and 76 - including 34 fours and 23 sixes - in three league matches for Welsh club Ton Pentre.
He also took 13 wickets at an average of less than six to help his side to the top of the table for the first time in their history.
Monthly winners receive a bottle of Cockspur VSOR rum, an award certificate and a Woodworm bat.
The overall winner will receive all that plus a Woodworm makeover and an invitation to the Club Cricket Conference annual lunch held at the Cafe Royal in November.
