The Crabtree Cup Final was held yesterday at Rufford CC

The Finalists were Penwortham and Fulwood & Broughton

Steve Lodge won the toss and invited Fulwood to bat.

They made a decent start with F & B Captain Alistair Mews scoring 33 and Muhammad Zaid 14.

Things changed when James Walsh was introduced into the attack. James bowled very well and claimed 4 for 33 from his 8 overs.

Khalil Patel added 24 but Fulwood were dismissed for 133.

A welcome return to teas were excellently provided by Rufford CC

Penwortham had a disastrous start losing their first 3 wickets with only 6 on the board.

A partnership between Harry Cox (33) and Issac Richardson (47) swung the tide in favour of Penwortham.

A very good spell by experienced Pete Haslam slowed the run rate (8 overs for only 11 runs) 

And only Adam Salisbury with 17 added a real contribution.

Until the final over the game could have gone either way but F&B triumphed by a mere 3 runs.

An excellent game played by two friendly rivals in a first-class game.

Michael Cooper with a superb 4 for 17 won the Man of the Match award

Yesterday, Preston's Sunday Team smashed the Competition record for the highest innings total. What is more extrordinary is that their score was from 40 overs rather than the 45 that the previous record set, Fulwoods 401-9 in Div 3 in 2015.

Preston scored 421-9 in 40 overs. Two players Rehan Javid and Suhel Patel Jr did most of the damage combining for 29 sixes before both retiring once reaching 150.
