Wisbech Town Cricket Club's Memorial Summer Sixes tournament was a big success
Wisbech Town Cricket Club hosted a great day at their Memorial Summer Sixes tournament.
The event was put together to remember and celebrate the lives of club members who have passed away in recent years. These included Paul Strickle, Adrian Peck, Mark Ovendale, Ken York, Mick Green and Roy Marshall.
Twelve teams entered the competition; they were split into two groups of six and played five games each.
Group A was won by Upwell Bad Boys with the Wisbech first team runners up, while the 406s won Group B ahead of On The Fence.
The 406s proceeded to beat Wisbech in their semi-final clash to up a final against Upwell Bad Boys, who had seen off On The Fence by nine runs.
Upwell started well in the final and they needed 20 from the final six balls for victory. Requiring two off the final ball, Jason Esser successfully hit to earn them the title.
They were handed the Adie Peck Trophy, with Jack Hastings awarded the Paul Strickle trophy for his man of the match performance in the final. Dom Stannard was was named the tournament's most valuable player.
Stannard, who co-organised the event with vice chairman Matt Esser, said: "What an outstanding day. Everyone enjoyed the event so much and it was lovely to see everyone remembering the club members we have lost in recent years.
The minutes applause was an amazing way to start the day. The intended spirit was shown throughout and some fantastic cricket played, having the final go down to the last ball was a great finish.
"Well done and thank you to everyone who took part and supported the event, and special thanks to the event sponsor Fraser Dawbarns."
