Arthur Hanson is Oxfordshire Boys U13 Player of the Year
Many congratulations to Arthur Hanson for being awarded the Oxfordshire U13 Player of the Year. As we all know, the prize is richly deserved as Arthur has played wonderful cricket for Shipton's junior and senior sides this year, including the 2nd XI, which at 13 is an achievement in itself. He was also our leading wicket taker in the 3rd XI. Well done Arthur! The last Shipton player to win this award was Joe Barrett, which just shows the outstanding nature of the accomplishment.
