South Launceston's Cricket North player of the round stranglehold has continued, with Graham Donaldson named this weekend's winner.
The medium-pacer produced an all-round showing in the Knights' 12-run loss to Wynyard, taking 3-26 off 8.5 overs and taking two catches before falling a run short of a second first-grade 50.
Batting at number eight, Donaldson and debutant Ryan Arnott, who finished not out on 38, put together an 80-run stand for the eighth wicket before the award-winner was caught by Damon Smith off the bowling of Yasaswu Vallabhaneni.
The veteran Knight's batting form has already seen him surpass his efforts from last season, scoring 88 runs from his four innings compared to 83 from eight.
Pushing for all-rounder status, he's also eighth in the bowling, with nine wickets at an average of 16.89.
Donaldson's victory makes it five awards from seven rounds for the Knights, made even more impressive by the round-three washout resulting in no award being given.
Coach Nathan Philip has won three of the gongs, with teammate Sisitha Jayasinghe and Launceston skipper Alistair Taylor claiming the rest.
Unfortunately for the Knights, the individual honours haven't always resulted in victories, sitting fifth in both the Cricket North and Greater Northern Cup ladders with two wins, two draws and three losses.
Other strong performances for the round included Launceston trio Ben Fraser (5-29), Cam Lynch (62 off 91 balls) and Sam Elliston-Buckley (50 off 26), Mowbray returnee John Hayes (5-28) and Riverside's Patrick Mackrell (75).
