REPORT:

In fading light, the Griffs fell six runs short of beating champions Berkswell in an exciting climax to the season.

Batting first in bright sunshine, the champions slipped to 38 for 2, before the middle order of Lewis, Jones and James saw them reach 225 for 9 from their allotted overs.

In reply the Griffs struggled to 58 for 4, before a fifth wicket partnership of 89 between Bhavik Patel (55) and Jugdip Nandra (67), put them in with a good chance of victory.

However it was left to Ali Awan, with support from the bowlers to try and steer the Griffs to victory, but the return of opening bowlers Jones and Milnes in now near darkness saw them fall to defeat by just six runs.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the team and the club throughout the season.
