Charlton Down 1Charlton Down Cricket Club won the August Team of the Month Award in the Dorset Funeral Plan cricket league.

The club won all their games in the month and finished winners of Division Five.

Pete Tucker was presented with the trophy by Peter Douch from the sponsors who also provided individual medals for the players and a bottle of bubbly.

Every month through the summer the team that has impressed the most wins the award – and the August winners receive theirs at the league AGM.

Pete Tucker said: “Apart from myself and one other player our team are all very young.

“They are enthusiastic and learning fast and we are now looking forward to the 2016 season in Division Four.”

Peter Douch said: “For a club that only formed in 2003 they have done remarkably well.

“Last season they established a young squad and had a brilliant last month, winning all their games with maximum points and taking the title.

“We wish them all the best for next season.
