The averages were then read, Mr A Butler topped the batting and Mr G Shaw the bowling. Mr S Shaw, Mr W Pepper and Mr A Butler were top of the catches.

The team had a remarkable season Played 33 Won 27 Lost 5 Drawn 1. The all round success of the season was a great improvement in both batting and bowling.. The Official for the 1960 season were then elected.

Mr R Cursham was reinstated again on the Vice Presidents list. The only change from the previous season was the committee. Mr Walker, Mr I Shaw, Mr J Taylor and Mr M Smith were not elected.
