The weather permitted and we saw some top cricket in the first of the national rounds. There was a thrilling game between Scottish club Falkland who made the long trip south (well… south for them) to Ouseburn in Yorkshire. The match was hard fought and went down to the wire as Falkland chased 306 and won on the last ball, totalling 307-6. The aggregate score has now made it into the record books tying at third place. The East Sussex champs Rottingdean went on to beat the West Sussex side Findon. A change in history of the east beating the west … in cricket that is.
Culminating in a showpiece final at Lord's, the Davidstow Village Cup is the only competition that offers amateur sportsmen and women the opportunity to play out their dreams on such hallowed turf. The final two teams will also be given the same treatment as the England team when they play at Lord’s including the same accommodation, suits supplied by formalwear partners T.M. Lewin and hospitality on the day.
