Simon Williams and Akiva Lieberman are the joint winners of the Northern Jewish Cricket League’s Senior Player of the Year.

The top junior award went to Andrew Williams.

The accolades were presented at the league’s AGM where chairman Jonny Wineberg, the Vice-President of the Jewish Representative Council, stepped down after four years. Steven Glicher, the co-captain of South Manchester Jewish, is the league’s new chairman.

Wineburg said: “The league can, I believe, look forward to continued success in 2010. The merger of Salford and Sedgley Park should see them being able to put out full sides each week and there are rumours of Maccabi being able to put out two sides. The Grassroots Grants funding will help bolster the running of the League and give impetus to arrange more Under 16s and Under 14s fixtures as well as more Senior representative matches.

More than £1,000 was raised for Lancashire spinner Gary Keedy’s benefit year and the charities he is supporting during the evening. He was the guest of honour.
