OB cricketer Higgins (D 09-13) nominated by fellow professionals for prestigious award
 
Old Bradfieldian Ryan Higgins (D 09-13) is one of four cricketers in contention to win the prestigious NatWest PCA Players’ Player of the Year award. The Gloucestershire all-rounder has been nominated by fellow professional cricketers for the headline award alongside England and Durham star all-rounder Ben Stokes, Essex off-spinner Simon Harmer and Warwickshire opener Dom Sibley. The winner will follow in the footsteps of 2018 recipient Joe Denly in collecting the Reg Hayter Cup at London’s Roundhouse tomorrow.
 
The NatWest PCA Awards is the most prestigious awards ceremony in English cricket with 12 honours presented and the three main accolades voted for by current professional players and this year sees the Association celebrate its 50th annual awards.
 
It has been a superb season for Ryan who played pivotal roles in both his county sides promotion to Division One of the Specsavers County Championship and their run to the quarter-finals of the Vitality Blast.
 
In the County Championship the all-rounder scored 958 runs at an average of just under 60 and took 50 wickets for under 24 runs apiece. The 24-year-old’s top score this season was 199 against Leicestershire in June and he has contributed well in white ball cricket with a further 386 runs and 16 wickets, bowling more overs for his county than any other player.
