July 31, 2021

“There were no incidents requiring police involvement at the grounds,” the police said following this year’s Cup Match Classic.

A spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service [BPS] would like to congratulate the Somerset Cricket Club on winning Cup Match 2021 and retaining the coveted cup following an exciting and entertaining game at the Wellington Oval in St Georges.

“Kudos to Neil Paynter and the management of the St. Georges Cricket Club for putting on the event and helping return the island to some measure of normalcy in the face of difficult circumstances created by continued efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19.”

Acting Police Commissioner Darrin Simons said, “The partnership between the BPS and the two clubs worked to ensure this year’s Cup Match was a success, particularly from a public order perspective.

“There were no incidents requiring police involvement at the grounds and we would like to also thank the spectators for their cooperation during the two day event.

“It was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate Emancipation Day, Mary Prince Day along with old Cup Match rivalries, in an atmosphere of safety and enjoyment.”
