Cricket in the Central Downs competition this season was played in the T20 format, with the competition made up of teams from Pittsworth, Millmerran, Kulpi and Bowenville.
Pittsworth made the semi finals of the competition but were knocked out by Millmerran, who then went on to play Kulpi in the grand final.

Troy Kahler was the Best Bowler with 7 wickets.
James “Jogger” Ellison was the club’s Best Fielder once again.

Will also shared the honours of Under 20s Player of The Year with Sam McGinn.
Ben Cavanagh won the perpetual trophy for Most Outstanding Performance in
a Match, with his match winning 72 not out against Bowenville.
Jacob Cameron was voted by his fellow Pelicans as Pittsworth’s Players’ Player.
Captain Jordan O’Shea took out Player of The Year based on votes by the opposition’s captain each week.
