Penzance take home the Vinter Cup trophy!

- Wed 12 Jul 2023

The annual event of the Vinter Cup final returned with Bradleys sponsoring the tournament on a perfect evening with glorious sunshine at Camborne Cricket Club on Wednesday 5th July. Penzance ran out winners, however, they did not have it all their own way in a well-contested final against Camborne, who were making their first appearance since 2005.

Having been restricted to 41 for 2 at the halfway mark Camborne recovered to 129 for 6. Dylan Kritzinger made 37 and Player of the Match Liam Weeks got 45 adding 69 for the fourth wicket. Tom Dinnis was the pick of the Penzance attack having Simon Hosking caught at mid-wicket and returning to have Alfie MacDonald caught with his four overs costing 18 runs and including a rare T20 maiden.

Camborne came well back into the game when three wickets fell in the space of 10 balls. Jacob MacDonald had Kian Burns stumped by Weeks. Christian Purchase holed out to Alfie Macdonald in front of the pavilion and Simon Keene sliced Jamie Goldsworthy to Simon Hosking at backward point. However, Jack Paull (26no) and Jonny Ludlam (30no) kept their heads to secure a five-wicket victory.

Nick Jewell, Bradleys Camborne Manager commented "The Vinter Cup is a fantastic event, in which I look forward to each year. Huge congratulations to both Penzance and Camborne for reaching the final and for playing such an entertaining match – it is one for the history books!"
