The Fovant-based left-arm all-rounder, who has made well over 5,000 runs since joining South Wilts in his early teens, collected his award at the club’s recent presentation dinner, with an accolade from club captain James Hayward.
“Pearcey has captained the last seven years, taking the side up from the Hampshire League and now into our cherished position," Hayward said.
“I have nothing but praise from him. His commitment has been outstanding and he’s taken our 2nd XI into their highest league ever. As a captain, he’s gone about his business in an unassuming manner, led by example and I know he has the respect of his team.
“I’d like to thank him for his efforts as captain and accept his decision that its now time for some new blood to lead the side. I look forward to seeing what Tom can do without the pressures of the captaincy – may be in the first team next summer.”
The father and son combination of Paul and Ben Draper scooped the President’s award and Junior Clubman awards, respectively.
Award winners: President’s award: Paul Draper; Clubman of the Year: Tom Pearce; Junior Clubman: Ben Draper; 1st XI: Jack Mynott; Young Player and 2nd XI: Sam Arnold; 3rd XI: Jon Burton; 4th XI: Paul Wylie.
