The Hayward Medal was inaugurated in 1994/95 and is awarded annually to recognise the best player in the Bentley Cricket Club's ‘A' Grade Team. The medal is donated by Club Members, Brian & Andrew 'Ace' Hayward.
The Hayward brothers contribution to our club is quite unique for siblings. They are both past Presidents of the Club, and both have occupied most admin positions within the club, as well as Club Coach, and 1st XI Grade Captain.
As A grade champion cricketers both, the club is honoured to have the Hayward brothers associated with our Club Champion award.
The winner of the Hayward Medal is the player who has accrued the most votes over the period of a season. Votes are allocated by the umpires in each ‘A' Grade match, on a 3,2,1 basis to players of both sides. The West Australian Suburban Turf Club Association collates the votes during the season, and publishes the results at the end of the season.
