WRIGHT: Luke wins both Monthly Awards for August25-Sep-2013
Sussex’s Luke Wright picked up two awards at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground today as he claimed both the Old Forge Restaurant Player of the Month and the Porsche Performance of the Month Awards.
Wright has been in scintillating form for much of the season with the bat and his form saw him called up to skipper the England Lions side in their series with Bangladesh A before being included in the full England side for their ODI series with Australia.
He hit centuries in the Yorkshire Bank 40 against the Netherlands and Worcestershire last month and his form in all-cricket earned him the gong of Old Forge Player of the Month, an award he won in both May and June this season.
He is seen above being presented with the award by Clive Roberts of the Old Forge with Luke winning a meal for two at the restaurant. It is a gong that began way back in 1991 and former Sussex wicketkeeper Martin Speight was the first player to receive the award.

Wright also picked up the Porsche Performance of the Month for his century against the Netherlands under the lights at Hove back in August. He smashed 114 from only 69 balls against the Dutch as the Sharks dismissed their visitors by nine wickets in a real professional performance from Sussex.
He is seen below being presented with his award by Jan Standing of the Porsche Centre Mid Sussex and Luke wins the use of a Porsche for the weekend or a fantastic track day courtesy of the centre. Click HERE to find out more about their Burgess Hill-based operation.
