Warley Win 14th T20 Finals Day

Sponsored by Foster’s at STONES CRICKET CLUB The T20 Finals Day, a victim of the weather on the original date of 29 July, nearly suffered the same consequence on a partly wet and blustery day at Ripponden Old Lane but a magnificent effort from the Stones CC ground staff, plus a shrewd switch to a T10 competition by the League Executive, ensured that all three ties were played to a conclusion. All four captains of the semi-finalists were happy to play the ten overs per side alternative, as opposed to what most likely would have a resulted in unwelcome bowl-offs.
