This ageing Wegi team, whose 1st XI has an average age of 37 (one aged 31, one 35 and nine between 37 & 39), have been gifted the ultimate reward for their remarkable over-achieving cup run.
The current XI is comprised of legends from both Wegi & Gips teams who made it to the very top and go down in history as greats of the Gips Alliance. They now play out their days between heavy plopping (9 this week, 11 the week before) playing more for enjoyment than success.
To pull off a few giant killings en route to the last 64 of the cup this yr is therefore remarkable. Their reward is a home tie against Yorkshire Ducks in a repeat of the team’s greatest ever showdown: the semi final in S31 when a late collapse followed 2 drops in the field to see them agonisingly miss the final by just 5 runs.
