Woodhouse Grange CC clinched their third National Village Cup with a 10-wicket win over Great & Little Tew CC at Lord’s on Sunday 7 September.
Great & Little Tew, from Oxfordshire, won the toss and batted, but struggled to make an impression on what was their first appearance at the Home of Cricket.
No batsman managed to pass 20 as the experienced Woodhouse Grange attack gave little away – David Suddaby the pick of the bowlers with 3/36 from nine overs.
Only opener Ashley Hubbert looked like sticking around, making a patient 17 before being trapped LBW by spinner Josh Jackson.
The Yorkshire side, playing in their sixth National Village Cup Final, made light work of the total with Andrew Bilton (70 not out) and captain Nick Hadfield (43 not out) guiding them to 118/0 after 23.1 overs.
Despite the eventual one-sidedness of the encounter, both sides will have enjoyed their experience at the Home of Cricket and will be hoping to earn themselves another opportunity to impress in next year’s final.
