Jpohannesburg - Reeza Hendricks’s stellar season saw him earn the sought after Player of the Year Award at the Highveld Lions Gala Dinner, hosted at Sun City. 

The award for Bowler of the Year went to Beuran Hendricks, who had been of superb value to his team in all formats, whilst Rassie van der Dussen’s consistent contribution with the bat earned him the silverware for Batsman of the Year. Van der Dussen was also voted by his fellow team members as Players’ Player of the Year. Players who were included in national teams were also honoured. 

The event, which earlier in the day saw cricket players, partners and sponsors applying their golfing skills at the home of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, continued was hosted against the backdrop of the 9th hole of the Gary Player Golf Couse.  

"We are incredibly proud of the notable performances of players at all levels of the pipeline and by hosting and honouring them on this day, we hope to further encourage those that are on the verge of breaking into the playing XI," commented Chief Executive Officer, Greg Fredericks.

"Every team goes through seasons that highlight areas that growth is still required and we are opting to take this learning curve as an opportunity to focus on plans that will enable us to achieve the potential that we know lies within the Lions and its shareholders."
