18 year old Josh McLauchlan was the third Easts man to post 1,000 runs in the northern season.

Roger Fouhy played at South Wiltshire Cricket Club, in Salisbury and was the overseas recruit that was the only bowler to make the bowling list picking up 28 wickets ( best being 6-55 ), and whilst he was not at his best for the whole season, did a good job at carrying a lightweight bowling attack. Did not have much chance with the bat.
