Richard Beaumont Award
Richard Beaumont was a well know player in the West Midlands league, having played initially for Warley and then for Bournville who went on to become Black Country Bears. Richard was an outgoing person that played a number of other sports but was renowned for his ability to shoot the deep ball with almost limitless range and he often turned or closed out games with a barrage of 3-pointers.
Sadly at the age of 33 Richard collapsed and died while playing Cricket, ironically midway through having the game of his life. The West Midlands League is proud to name the 3-point contest after Richard and invite sharpshooters from around the league to contest the award annually at the WMBL Cup Finals day.
