Two Major Honours in Four Days

21 February

Sometimes 56 seasons will pass with only two major honours and then another two will come along in the space of a few days. 

The Gips won the English cup on Sunday for the first time in their history. This came just three days after having defeated second placed Googlies to go 36 points clear with just the two relegated sell-up teams to play.

The FC victory was impressive after having lost the toss and being bowled out for just 93. At that point the defence of last season’s second major honour in the club’s history was looking doubtful. 

A decent comeback with the ball ensured the first innings deficit was only 84. Then the batsmen got to work adding 409 second innings runs and we completed a 217 run victory.
