Sussex County Cricket Club held their annual Awards Evening on Saturday night at The County Ground, Hove.

The Sussex playing staff claimed a host of different gongs with Ed Joyce and Steve Magoffin sharing the Player of the Year Award.

Joyce struck 1398 runs in the LV=County Championship which included seven hundreds and a best of 164 not out against Nottinghamshire at Hove. The captain led firmly from the front averaging 66.57 in the Championship and also scored 320 Royal London One-Day Cup runs at an average of 53.33.

Magoffin took 72 wickets at an average of 19.51 in the LV=CC this season, finishing top of the pile in terms of Division One wicket-takers, with a best of 6 for 60 against Somerset at Taunton.

One-Day Player of the Year was awarded to Luke Wright, who scored over 600 runs in the NatWest T20 Blast at an average of 50.08, including two hundreds, along with the magical unbeaten 153 from 66 balls against Essex at Chelmsford, which also earned him the Performance of the Year Award on the evening. The knock was a domestic T20 record and led Sussex to a world-record run chase.

Young Player of the Year was awarded to Craig Cachopa, who scored over 400 LV=CC runs having only made his first-team debut in July, and went on to finish the season with a four-day average of 49.00. Lewis Hatchett claimed the Most Improved Player of the Year Award as the left-arm seamer enjoyed a significant breakthrough year, taking over 40 wickets across the three formats of the game.

The Agony to Ecstasy Award went to Will Beer and Yasir Arafat as they rescued victory from the jaws of defeat in the One-Day Cup match with Durham at Hove, putting together a 97-run partnership to win the match with Sussex seven wickets down at the time. Beer was also named as the Team Man of the Year, an accolade which rewards the selfless contributions made by a player off the pitch throughout the course of the season.

Chris Jordan claimed the Chairman’s Award from Jim May as recognition for his meteoric rise since joining the club from Surrey at the beginning of the 2013 season, to his achievements with the England squad.

Both Joyce and Magoffin were also named in the BBC Team of the Year as announced on the evening by Adrian Harms of BBC Sussex.
