The 18-year-old left-handed batsman, who turns 19 this Friday, copped the award at the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association Presentation and Awards Ceremony, which was staged at the Methodist Church Hall, Kingstown.

Browne, who was also named among the Five Cricketers of the Year, staved off contenders such as Rawdon Bentick, Dyke Cato, Cordell Jack and Hyron Shallow, to receive the award.

Browne was voted the Most Valuable Player in the 2010 Zonal Under-19 Cricket competition, scoring 195 runs, at an average of 48.75 runs. He took nine wickets for 87 runs, at a cost of 9.67 apiece.

He had the best bowling performance in the National Lotteries Authority Neil Williams Twenty/20 Competition.

Showing his all round ability, Browne, who represents Victors One in domestic competitions, had bowling figures of 6 for 19 versus the losing finalists Owia Stars.

Despite having a lean season with the bat at the 2010 Windward Islands Power Companies Under-19 Windwards Competition, Browne went to play a pivotal role in enabling the Windwards to capture the 2010 TCL Group of Companies West Indies Under-19 three-day competition which was staged in St. Lucia.

Browne, in his final year at the Under-19 level, blazed 106 against Jamaica, which was the platform for putting the Windwards in pole position.

Having made his national senior team debut last year, Browne was named last week in the Windwards provisional squad for the 2011 West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) four-day regional competition. (RT)
