Alex Curry and David Flynn won the Club’s double wicket trophy yesterday after as more than twenty players and a host of supporters enjoyed an afternoon of excitement and surprises.
Early favourites James Drury and Mike Caplan blasted their way through to the semi-finals before falling to the youth and experience of Nye Brown and Tony Jenkins. Lloyd Harris and Naeem Ullah were the surprise package, forcing their way to the last four before Dave Flynn’s bowling defeated them.
Other highlights included Andy Lloyd coming out of retirement to partner son Evan and the two bowl-outs needed to separate tied teams.
Thanks go to all involved and especially to Rhys and Ali for making the arrangements and keeping everything on time, to Cappers and Sally for tea and to umpires Stephen and Martyn.
Congratulations to Gary Israel and his Second XI team on gaining promotion to the G&M Division One 2nd XI to cap a hugely successful season for the Club.
Both the Firsts and Seconds recorded their best ever league finishes and the Vale of Glamorgan Midweek League side took the league title.
