BOVEY Tracey, South Devon and Chagford were among the big winners at the annual Wollen Michelmore South Devon Youth League awards evening.
Somerset batsman Jamie Hildreth was the VIP guest and presentor at the evening, staged at the Grand Hotel in Torquay.
Hildreth shook hands with plenty of Bovey Tracey players as teams playing in the Under-13 A Division, the Under-13 Girls Division, the Under-15A Division and the Under-17 Cup trooped up to the stage to collect their trophies and mementos.
Bovey Tracey players also won individual awards for batting and bowling.
South Devon were formally crowned Under-15 B Division champions and had four winners in player-of-the-year awards: Josh Hammett (batter), Jack Clarkson (bowler) and Emily Martin (all-rounder) and Under-11B bowler Sean Andrews.
Martin, who played in South Devon’s Men’s 1st XI for much of last season, was the girls’ player of the year for the league.
Chagford won the Under-10 Division and were runners-up at Under-11A, Under-11B and Under-12 level.
Ashburton scooped the Under-13 B title.
Ipplepen had a good year at Under-14 level, winning all three individual awards and the runners-up cup.
The Services to Youth Cricket award went to Abbotskerswell’s official Richard Codd.
