EACH week The Daily Examiner awards the Toast of the Cricketer of the Week for outstanding performances in Clarence River Cricket Association's Premier League, Second Grade and Third Grade competitions.

The three cricketers each win a $10 voucher at Toast Espresso in Prince St, Grafton.

This week bowlers shared the spoils for the Toast Cricketer of the Week vouchers.

  • Adam Elliott (Premier League, Coutts Crossing) - Bowled almost a quarter of all overs in the day in his side's win over GDSC Easts, including his first Premier League five-wicket haul (5 for 23 off 16.1 overs) in the first innings followed by another scalp in the second.
  • Matthew Dalton (Second Grade, South Services) - Dalton put in one of his best performances with the ball, taking 4-34 off 17 overs as South Services bowled Tucabia out 10 runs short of their total.
  • Craig Pereira (Third Grade, Coutts Crossing) - With only eight blokes in the field, 'Pup' Pereira was forced to bowl tight lines to limit the Westlawn scoring and snagged a five-for with his left arm medium-pacers. He finished with 5-19 off his eight overs.

Spending his $10 voucher could start a bit of a row for South Services second-grade Matt Dalton.

Although he turns 15 next month, he loves a cup of coffee, something his mum, Heidi Dalton, doesn't like.

"I love my coffee, but mum is not too keen. If she comes with me, I might be having a chocolate milkshake," he said.

As a medium-pacer coming up from thirds to second grade, Dalton is loving playing on grass wickets.

"It was a bit green on Saturday and the ball was moving around off the wicket," he said. "I had a nice outswinger going as well."

Dalton said he was proudest of a wicket where he took the batsman's outside edge for a caught behind.

"The two balls before just missed the edge and the third one got him," he said.

Who will win the 2016/17 CRCA Premier League title?
