The Blight Perpetual Trophy – Club Person of the Year

The following is a proud list of those individuals who, since the 1990/91 season, have made a significant contribution (in a volunteer/off-field capacity) to the Wistow Cricket Club in any given season such that they have been honoured with The Blight Perpetual Trophy as Club Person of the Year.  To these individuals both past and present we thank you for your valuable contributions to the Wistow Cricket Club.

The trophy is named The Blight Perpetual Trophy in honour of the Blight family, one of the pioneering families of the Wistow area and one of the earliest families to be involved in the Wistow Cricket Club.  Since 1912, cricket at Wistow has been played atop “the Hill”, which for many years was situated on land owned by the Blight family as part of the Blight Family Farm, until 30th January 1995 when in an act of extreme generosity, WCC Life Members Brian F. Blight and his son Ian F. Blight, gifted the land on which the Hill stands to the Club, making us one of the only clubs in the Association to own the land on which we play.
