Volts limited-overs specialist Josh Finnie was named Dunedin club cricketer of the year at the awards ceremony at the University of Otago Oval.

Finnie helped Carisbrook-Dunedin/Kaikorai secured the Bing Harris Shield with an impressive return from his 14 games for the combined team.

The 24-year-old apprentice builder scored 430 runs at an average of 39.09 and an impressive strike rate of 150.35. He notched 185 of those runs in an incredible hitting spree against Green Island in late February.

That knock included 12 sixes and 20 fours. Few players are as destructive as Finnie when he is in the zone.

He also had a successful club season at the bowling crease. The off spinner nabbed 25 wickets at an average of 14.76.
