Best Club Person

W.H. Sutton Memorial Trophy

Harry Sutton joined the Hampton Cricket Club in the mid-1950s at a time when the club was descending to one of the lowest points in its history. A few people stood between the club and extinction at that time and prominent among those was Harry Sutton.

As President he used his great people skills to galvanise support for a rebuilding program and laid the foundations for the modern club. Among other things he presided over the club’s expansion from two to four teams and the introduction of junior cricket to Hampton for the first time.  After his retirement he remained an enthusiastic organiser of the Hampton past players group. The Harry Sutton trophy was established in the 1976-77 season in recognition of his outstanding contribution at such a critical point in the Club’s history and is awarded to the person who makes an outstanding contribution to the running of the club during the season.
