William Blair - like father, like son!

Moonee Valley young gun William Blair has taken out the North West Metropolitan Cricket Association's Under 12 C bowling award - but it's no surprise with the tuition he gets from his dad Bill.

William won the trophy with 14 wickets during the regular season at the miserly average of 8.0, with a best performance of 2/4.

He will need to keep bowling just as well to catch up to dad Bill, a Sunshine United legend in the VTCA who has incredibly twice taken all 10 wickets in an innings in the Firsts.

But young William was certainly happy with the bowling award he was presented with at the NWMCA junior presentation night on March 29, and the Under 12 C Premiership plaque he received on behalf of his teammates.

The Under 12s lifted the only Premiership won by Moonee Valley in 2011/12, and the players were on top of their game all season under the coaching of Paul Baks, ably backed up by assistants Bill Blair and Michael Cumbo.

The Under 12 flag continued an incredible run by Moonee Valley, as junior or senior teams have won at least one premiership every year since 2003/04, with the exception of 2010/11.

Most of the Under 12 players were in their first year in the age group, so they should be a formidable unit as top-age Under 12s next season.
