MAGOFFIN: 'Mags' is Old Forge Player of the Month for June23-Jul-2014
Steve Magoffin is the recipient of Sussex’s Old Forge Restaurant Player of the Month Award for June.
The tall Aussie seamer showed impressive form once again with the ball last month taking 17 wickets in Sussex’s four LV=County Championship matches, including four wickets in the first innings of the match with Nottinghamshire at Hove and Yorkshire at Arundel Castle respectively.
He is seen here receiving his award from former Sussex batsman and current Business Relationship Manager Tony Cottey at Horsham on Day Three of Sussex’s match with Warwickshire. It is a gong that began way back in 1991 and former Sussex wicketkeeper Martin Speight was the first player to receive the award.
The recipient of the award is chosen each month by Adrian Harms of BBC Sussex, who sees nearly every ball of Sussex’s Championship campaign thanks to their live commentary.
‘Mags’ wins a meal for two at the Old Forge Restaurant in Storrington for his efforts.
