Tuggeranong all-rounder Shane Devoy, North Canberra Gungahlin’s Rebecca Maher, Meteors opener Katie Mack and ACT/NSW Country Comet Nathan McAndrew have taken out the major awards at the 57th ACT Cricket Awards at the Canberra Southern Cross Club on Thursday night. 

Alongside the awards, six new members were inducted into the Cricket ACT Hall of Fame. Read more. 

A former ACT Meteor and stalwart of Canberra cricket, Rebecca Maher picked up her third SJ Moore Medal for Women’s Player of the Year, an astounding 15-years after she won her first in 2005/06. Maher enjoyed a successful season with the bat scoring 331 runs with a high score of 103 not out.

Shane Devoy is now one step closer to making ACT premier cricket history after winning his fourth DB Robin Medal. The victory moves him into second on the all-time DB Robin Medalist tally, one behind ANU legend and Hall of Fame member Greg Irvine. Shane had a magnificent all-round season scoring 298 runs at an average of 49.67 including a high score of 157. He also picked up 23 wickets throughout the season.

Recently signing on with South Australia for the upcoming season, Nathan McAndrew celebrated the end of his seven-year journey with the ACT/NSW Country Comets claiming his first Solway Medal. Nathan will be one of eight locally developed players contracted across the domestic scene in 2021/22, alongside another 11 from the ACT/NSW Country Pathway.

After a season of milestones for Abode Hotels ACT Meteors opening batter Katie Mack, it was no surprises she was announced as the Calver Medalist for the third consecutive year. Mack got her season off to a solid start with her knock of 54 bringing up her 1500th career run for the Meteors.

In the team’s third hit-out of the season against South Australia, Katie carried her bat for an unbeaten 106 from 131 balls. Mack closed out the year celebrating her 50th WNCL match and came agonising close to her second ton of the season, out for 95. Those runs brought her season tally to 418, the second highest in the competition.

In other awards announced on the night, much-loved member of Tuggeranong Valley Cricket Club Pina Kidd was revealed as the Paul Egan Volunteer of the Year while secretary of the ACT Cricket Umpires and Scorers Council Gary Rees was the well-deserving recipient of the Greg Lord Administrator of the Year title.
