It's Awards week and the one certainty is that Clontarf all-rounder David Delany will pick up the Club Player of the Year accolade.

The 25 year-old may not have 'a point of difference' but he certainly proved a point in Leinster cricket in the 2022 campaign.

Delany scored a hugely impressive 1149 runs at an average of 67.59, with his remarkable consistency showing in nine fifties and one century.

Of course, he is more known for his hostile pace bowling and that yielded 39 wickets at 16.64.

That makes the award a formality when it's handed out in Dublin at the end of the week.

He won't be there in person as he's currently enjoying a stint as an overseas player in Australia.

Other club players worthy of mentions are Ross Adair who hit 979 runs at 61.19 in the NCU, with this form earning him international recognition.

Best with the ball in the NCU were Ben Adair (32 wickets at 20.22) and Mark Berry (31 wickets at 11.55).

Jared Wilson enjoyed a successful campaign scoring 708 runs at 41.65 and taking 37 wickets as 17.89 as Newbuildings won the league.

Colleagues Johnny Thompson and Ryan Hunter also scored heavily, while Brigade's David Barr and Ryan Macbeth were impressive too with ball and bat.
