Not many records of the winners of the Senior batting prior to 1945 have survived to the present day. From looking over the minutes from the Annual General Meetings the following information has been gathered.
The first instance of a mention of an award to be presented was in the minutes of the 1910 AGM to be given called the J Williamson trophy for the best batting average, however this trophy is never mentioned again and it is unknown how long this trophy was presented to the player with the best batting average.
During the early years of the club many 'outside matches' were played, that is matches against opposition outside the local club competition. It is unknown if the statistics for the batting honours prior to 1945 include these matches, but are listed here as they were stated in the minutes from the Annual General Meetings.
In 1958 a cup was presnted to the club by President Jack McConway for the Senior batting honours. Winners of this trophy are represented at King George Park, the home of the Union Cricket Club, with their name added to the seniors honours board along with the season. To be awarded this Cup the winner must have scored at least 200 runs for the season to qualify, then have the highest average amongst those that have qualified.
