    Well done Dion!….now that the Hon Minister Weeks was there, I should have the full attention to suggest renaming Tribe Road 5 Paget to Dion Stovell Lane (smile)

    I am an avid St George’s supporter (not a fan), and you certainly deserve the honour that was bestowed on you.

    On another note, hearing this new venture is a combined effort between both clubs and umpires, it is HIGH TIME that Somerset and St George’s make an annual monetary donation to the Friendly Societies from whence Cup Match derived!

    There is a museum in St George’s that is always looking for donations to assist in preserving the extremely rich heritage and history of the reason why Cup Match is so cherished today
