Best Player Under 21 - Hayden Jacob Award
Who is Hayden Jacob?
Hayden played his first game for the Ringwood United Junior Soccer Club Cricket Club at the age of 7 in the Under 12’s. He played 4
seasons of under 12’s, 2 seasons of under 14’s, and 2 seasons of under 16’s for a total of10 seasons of junior cricket.

During his 10 years of junior cricket he won both the club and association batting averages on numerous occasions - his highest score was
159 not out at under 14 level against Boronia in 1983. He scored 2 centuries in under 16’s and captained Premiership teams at all 3 levels
of junior cricket.  Hayden represented the club in the RDCA under 12’s for 2 years, Croydon Hatch for 2 years and Ringwood Dowling
Shield for one year.

He played his first game of senior cricket at 13 years of age in season 1984/85 in the 4th XI and worked his way into the 1st XI where he
played several games before moving back to 4th XI to be part of a premiership team. The first game of the following season Hayden was
selected in the first 1st XI and that’s where he stayed for the next 12 years. During this period he won the club batting average on many
occasions, and the bowling average on one occasion.

Hayden represented the club in RDCA under 19, under 21, senior teams, and the RDCA All Stars. He was recognized by the RDCA as Most
Promising Player Leaving Under 16’s in 1986/87, Best Player Under 19 season 1986/87, Best Player Under 21 1990/91.

He won the Chandler Shield batting average in 1990/91 and represented the club in RDCA under 19, under 21, senior teams, and the RDCA
All Stars.

Hayden played an important role in Parkwood’s only 1st XI premiership in season 1987/88. During this time he also won 1st XI Bowling
average and was the Club Champion.

He enjoyed himself as much off the field as he did on the field - he socialized with the players from all clubs. Hayden moved interstate for
business reasons during the 1996/97 season and although he has moved back to Melbourne he has not played cricket since that time.


What is this awarded for?

Best Club Person - Margaret Imms Award
Who was Margaret Imms?
Margaret became involved with the Parkwood club in the early 1980’s when her two sons, Rohan and Matthew, joined the junior club. In
those early years, she was Pam Jacob’s first regular help and they would spend every Saturday in the canteen - the first to arrive and the
last (after cleaning) to leave. Until then, there were not may women involved in the Club and it was difficult to get regular help in the
canteen. In those days Parkwood was renowned for their afternoon teas, which always included home made scones. (Bill Dean, then
President of the RDCA, always tried to time his weekly rounds to have afternoon tea at Parkwood). During these years the canteen was the
main fund-raising area of the club.

As her boys progressed through to the senior club, she continued to support them and the club. Margaret was a wonderful human being,
genuinely interested in the welfare of all those around her, she knew all the players by name and was always the first to offer assistance to
anyone in need. She continued working tirelessly for the club and subsequently joined the committee, contributing greatly to the club’s
success.

Margaret was awarded Life Membership of the Club in 1991.  After Margaret’s death in 1995 the club committee decided to create the
award in her honor.


What is this awarded for?
Awarded to a Club member who is deemed to have assisted the Club throughout the Season above and beyond their normal duties, as
selected by the Management Committee.

Quiet Achiever - Bob Moyes Award
Who was Bob Moyes?
W.R (Bob) Moyes was Parkwood (one of our founding Clubs) Cricket Club’s first life member in 1984. He was the scorer for the first XI for as
long as anyone can remember. His last role as scorer was 10 days before he died and this is the role that most people saw but his
involvement with the club was far greater.

Bob was not a young man - in his mid seventies he was always at the annual uncovering of the pitches. This is a time at most clubs where
the gathering is small but Bob made sure he always had his shovel. Every winter Bob would repair the boundary flags, carry out
maintenance on the scoreboards and numbers, if the scoreboard was beyond repair he would make a new one.

Bob served on the committee for over 10 years and was Secretary for many. He was the clubs RDCA delegate; he regularly painted the
creases on the pitches, made sure that the wicket boxes were full of soil and always had chewing gum for the players. Senior and Junior
ladders were constantly updated and displayed in the club rooms thanks to Bob.

Bob was a special person who never said a bad word about anyone, a true gentleman and highly respected not only by our club but by all
who met him throughout the RDCA and many other sporting and community groups.

Bob was a ‘Quiet Achiever’ and the Moyes family has donated this perpetual trophy in honor of Bob Moyes.

What is this awarded for?

Awarded to a Club member who is deemed to have helped the Club throughout the Season in ways not always visible to everyone, as
selected by the Management Committee.
