Posted on 2nd September 2022 at 07:37
The Viking Cricket Cup final, between Barnsley Woolley Miners and Woodhouse Grange, of Yorkshire Premier League North, will take place at Wakefield Thornes CC, Field Lane, Wakefield, WF 2 7RT, this Sunday, 4th September - 12 noon start.
All spectators will be very welcome and will be able to enjoy drinks from the bar, tea, coffees, sandwiches, homemade scones and cakes and a barbeque. We ask only that spectators do not bring alchohol into the ground. A match programme, with information about the teams and facilities, will be available free of charge on the day.
Barnsley WMCC, led by talented young all-rounder Beck Frostick, have reached their second Viking Cricket final this year by beating Whitley Hall, Whiston Parish Church, York and Clifton Alliance; whilst Woodhouse Grange, led by the experienced former Yorkshire Academy and Scarborough all-rounder James Finch, had a bye in the first round and then beat Cawthorne, Wakefield Thornes and Sheriff Hutton Bridge to reach this stage.
Woodhouse Grange won the trophy in 2018 and 2019, and this is a repeat of the 2019 final, in which they beat Barnsley WMCC.
The match umpires will be Ian Robertshaw (York) and Neil Vaughan (Chesterfield); the match manager will be Steve Ward (YCSPL); and the scorers Ellie Chapman (Barnsley WMCC) and Rob Smith (Woodhouse Grange).
The Yorkshire Cricket Southern Premier League and the Yorkshire Premier League North would like to thank our cup sponsor, Jeff Wilson, at Viking Cricket, for his generous support; and Chris Froggett and everyone at Wakefield Thornes CC for all their help in hosting the game. We congratulate both teams on reaching this final, and wish them the very best of luck on the day. We hope that it will be an enjoyable and memorable day for everyone.
