It finally arrived at the fourth time of asking. Will Gornall was tremendous taking 5 for 15 and was well supported by the other bowlers with Raz conceding almost nothing and a fired up Jono on top form.
After a solid batting performance to post 149 for 5 the firsts were in control until Marrow got stuck into the bowling to put the game in the balance and give a few people the jitters. The turning point was a kamikaze run out with Marrow stranded by yards.
For Jimmy Nicholls, Rooster and Glenn it was their second Cup Final win in 3 days, whereas some players go a lifetime without ever appearing in Final.
Rooster had a grin as broad as the Cricketfield Road pitch. He was so full of delight he volunteered his match fee which he had ‘forgotten’ to pay on Monday!
Well done lads.
Perhaps Angus will submit a full report?
