He was more than content with the way the returning BOIDC competition panned out over the summer but CYMS' skipper Hugh Le Lievre called for more format variation in the next campaign, including the addition of limited overs cricket.
"There's lots of merit for one-day cricket to be incorporated," Le Lievre said.
"How it looks overall, I'm not really sure ... that's up to the powers that be to decide but some sort of one-day cricket would be good.
"It's a challenge when it's spread across two towns with different weather and wicket preparation both factors."
While there's room for improvement with the season structure, Le Lievre loved the overall challenge the competition presented and was happy some of the youthful members of CYMS' roster were able to mix it up with Bathurst's best when they haven't been able to in past seasons.
"From a CYMS cricket point of view, we felt that it was good for our first grade team to be a part of that competition," he said.
"It was great for some of our younger players to be exposed to some of the strong players from Bathurst that they otherwise wouldn't play against."
While he thinks a mixture of one and two-day cricket is optimal, Le Lievre doesn't see a need for Twenty20 cricket to be included in the BOIDC and that there's already one, perfect location for the quicker style of play.
"The Royal Hotel Cup stands alone as the best competition for that in the region," he said.
Teething issues were to be expected and after touching on some areas of improvement, Le Lievre made sure to commend the competition and vouch for its existence down the track.
"For the longevity of cricket in Bathurst and Orange, it's important to have the inter-town competition moving forward," he said.
"It's a real strength and I hope that some version of it continues moving forward."
Orange CYMS' season was affected heavily by the weather as their semi-finals match against St Pat's Old Boys was cut short, seeing the batting team (Pat's) able to capitalise on the shortened match and keep the bats in-hand to see out the contest.
Le Lievre put together an impactful campaign as he was destructive with ball in hand for CYMS, often partnering with brother Angus to rip through orders.
He had the best average of any bowler in the competition, taking more than 10 wickets. He also displayed ability with the bat, putting together a ton on one occasion, along with several other masterful knocks.
