Worthy causes were the winners when an annual cricket match was staged in Long Sutton for the fifth year.

The home side were victorious in their annual charity game against Old Luttonians – and three good causes also had reason to celebrate.

Raffle prizes, refreshments and a barbecue made £538.40 on the day, with the cash to be split between Lutton Church Repair Fund, Long Sutton Cricket Club and the Agape Foodbank.

Spectators and players enjoyed a great day of cricket in dry, if cool and blustery, weather, and the winning tropy was presented to Long Sutton captain Rob Simpson by South Holland District Councillors Jack Tyrell and Laura Etheridge.

The man of the match award was given to Matt Bull, of Long Sutton.

Organisers thanked players, friends, family and spectators for their support and also those who donated raffle prizes, baked cakes, served teas and cooked and served the barbecue.

They were also grateful for donations made by Hovendon Park Golf Club, Solo Blinds, Nene Potatoes, Boyes and Long Sutton Co-op.
