The Walter Lawrence Trophy
Gloucestershire allrounder Marcus North has won the 2007 Walter Lawrence Trophy, awarded for the season's fastest first-class century. He won the trophy for his 73-ball hundred against Leicestershire on May 5.

North, a 28-year-old left-hand batsman from Western Australia, who has previously been at Durham, Lancashire and Derbyshire, hit 13 fours and a six during his century. He will be presented with the Walter Lawrence Trophy and a cheque for £5,000 at a special lunch in The Long Room at Lord's on October 18.

At the lunch, Simon Butler, a 23-year-old Cardiff UCCE batsman, who scored 167 against Leeds/Bradford UCCE at Cardiff on May 3, will receive a silver medallion and prize of £1,000. Butler is the second winner of the Walter Lawrence Trophy award for the highest score by a batsman from the six MCC Universities against one of the other five University Centres of Cricketing Excellence or against one of the first-class counties.
