Congratulations to Alex O’Neil who reached the feat of scoring 1,000 runs for the club in the rain-affected match against Helperby 2nd XI at the ACG on the 16th June 2018.
Alex hit an unbeaten 41 as the 1st XI racked up a mammoth 314-4 after just 40 overs. The hard-hitting run machine becomes the 25th player in Arthington league history to reach 1,000 runs and his effort on Saturday also saw him overtake Lawrence Barraclough to become the 24th highest run-maker for the club.
Alex accomplished the milestone in only his 27th match for the club. In our league history, only 3 players have scored more than 1,000 runs in fewer matches than Alex – Ben Lake, James Brennan and Naveed Andrabi – so Alex has joined a very elite club with this effort.
He has amassed a total of 1,028 runs since his debut in 2016, helping himself to 2 centuries and 6 fifties along the way. He currently holds a very impressive Arthington career average of 46.73.
Congratulations again to Alex from all at Arthington Cricket Club.
