WESTFIELD C.C. ---John Cornford Memorial Cup

This match is played each year between Westfield CC and Sedlescombe CC in memory of John Cornford who was a well known and respected local cricketer and was associated with both teams.

Westfield CC retained the cup yesterday (Sun 17th September) in an excellent match with some more milestones for the club being achieved.

Our second Colt, Zach Turner, played his first adult game and contributed well to the win. Zac is the step-son of Darren Corke who scored an excellent undefeated 114 runs as well as taking 2 wickets for 20 runs and not to be outdone Graham Corke, who is Darren’s father, took 4 wkts for 36 runs---an excellent family contribution. Also congratulations to Graham who has been selected to tour Australia early next year as a member of the ECB Senior side----an international who is a member of Westfield CC !!!

Skipper, Peter Baker, scored 60 runs and retired so that young Zach would have the opportunity to bat in his first adult game. In the process of scoring his runs Peter passed 1,000 runs for the season which is an amazing feat at any level of cricket so huge congratulations to him.

The scores were:- Sedlescombe CC 206 runs all out

                               Westfield CC 211 runs for 4 wickets

This was the last competitive home game of the season and next week we are holding an end of season fun cricket day with our All Stars, Colts and Senior Players enjoying some fun cricket among themselves and parents so Mums and Dads will be joining in. Patrick will also be providing a BBQ so can everybody please keep everything crossed so that we get some good weather!
