After an incredibly impressive tournament over the past week in Mackay, Luke Ryan has been awarded the Alan Wilson Medal. The medal is awarded to the Player of the Series at the the Open’s level.

Making his debut at seventeen years of age in 2010, Ryan has now competed in eight opens tournaments. When asked about the award, Luke Ryan stated “I was completely surprised and humbled to receive the Alan Wilson Medal for player of the series. In the past, the Alan Wilson medal has been awarded to Australia's best male international player and although the award has changed, to receive an award with his name, an immortal of our game and a personal hero is something I will treasure for the rest of my life.”

Across eleven matches, Ryan managed to score 107 runs with the bat only being dismissed six times while only conceding 28 runs with the ball, taking sixteen wickets throughout the tournament. “I didn't have the greatest start to the tournament, but after chats with Billy Floros, Matt Floros and Vinesh Bennett I was able to improve my performances. I'm very thankful to those three for backing me and giving me the opportunity to play.” said Ryan.

Luke has been also selected for the Australian Open Men’s side which will take part in the 2017 Indoor Cricket World Cup in Dubai. Upon returning from the tournament he will resume playing in the ACT Premier Cricket competition for the Ginninderra Cricket Club.
