“The first competition was contested in 1963 and the Willow Cuts Cricket Club was the first champion winning the Warren Simmons Cup which was to be played for on an annual basis.

“Initially, all matches were played on Thursdays at the Champions Club home ground. These matches became an annual event and grew into not only a sporting event but created a community atmosphere with food stalls and other recreational activities.

“We encourage the community to come out nd join us in cheering on their favourite Western Counties Cricket Association team.
