Rod Warhurst Sunday Cup Final Report

PLAYED AT OLD TOWN CC – SUNDAY 1 JULY 2018 Almondbury Wesleyan 223 (Court 46, Shipman 41), Sowerby Bridge 227-8 (Mattock 50, Harrison 49)

Sowerby Bridge win thrilling Cup Final

Sowerby Bridge chased down a target of 223 all out set by Almondbury Wesleyan to lift the Rod Warhurst Cup. Darren Chapman's men overtook the target with three overs to spare in a game in which fortunes swung to and fro under the hot sun. Shazad Bostan hit the winning runs watched from the non-striker's end by Andy Mellor in his last ever game. Ian Kenworthy and his team battled all the way in a hugely entertaining match that was a great advert for the section. Man of the match was Matthew Harrison but there were a number of contenders for the title from both teams.

Head To Old Town Next Sunday 1st July For Rod Warhurst Sunday Cup Final

The first knockout final of the season takes place next Sunday 1 July at Old Town CC when Division 1 team, Almondbury Wesleyan, takes on Sowerby Bridge from Division 2 in the Sunday League’s Rod Warhurst Cup Final, sponsored by Copymark. It promises to be a Final of contrasts in so much that both teams will include on the one hand several veteran players in the twilight of their careers, to a plethora of youngsters at the start of their open-age cricketing life. In fact it will be a case of trying to spot the odd player between 20 and 35 years of age!


Congratulations to Almondbury Wesleyans and Sowerby Bridge on their semi-final victories.


They will contest the  Warhurst  Cup Final at Old Town's Boston Hill ground on Sunday 1 July.

If any fixtures are likely to be affected by the rolling road closures on Sunday clubs may vary the time at which their match starts to avoid problems, as long as both sides agree. Road closures should be for no more than an hour. The race leaves Halifax at about 12.20 and clears Hebden Bridge about half an hour later.
