Brian Hunt Best Clubman Award

Each year at the annual presentation of trophies, Kingston Hawthorn Cricket Club awards a person the Brian Hunt Perpetual Trophy for the Best Clubman Award. The Best Clubman Award is voted by the committee and presented to the individual(s) who have made the greatest contribution to the club throughout the season.

Brian has worked tirelessly for the club since he joined at the inception of St Johns in 1975. He won the award for the first four years and again in 1989. It was decided that the award should be named in Brian’s honour so to allow other people to win the award. Over the years Brian has been barman (sometimes leaving the ground early to ensure cold beer was available for the players), Curator (Walter Galt and St. Bedes), cleaner of the clubrooms and general handyman. You will often see Brian at the club with his head in the rubbish bin collecting the cans. The clubs trophies for the first ten years were donated by R. L. Roberts.  Brian would collect the empty bottles take them to R L Roberts the Bottleo and purchase the trophies with the money.
