GARNONS had a weekend to remember as they clinched victory in the semi-final and final of the GB Liners Marches Senior 20/20 KO Cup.

With strong team displays in both games and using their spin bowlers effectively Garnons took a comfortable victory in both ties.

Due to the weather causing the postponement of their previous T20 semi-final between Cleobury Mortimer and Garnons the fixture was played as a league match.

Visiting Cleobury elected to bat but only opener Nick Griffiths was able to make a stand hitting 63 before being joined by Harry Booton (30no).

However, a hat-trick for spin bowler Carl Lewis saw the visitors’ innings end on 157.

In response opener James Debenham also hit a half-century before an unbeaten partnership between

Rob Pritchard (23) and Christian Ferreira (28) helped the hosts to reach 163-4 off 31 overs.

Mortimer Park hosted Sunday’s T20 final with Garnons able to recall several players who were unavailable the previous day.

The hosts were put into bat and Christian Ferreira took two quick wickets including captain James Platford who fell with his side on 20-2.

Will Maud (44) and Duncan Platford (22) helped boost the target but Ferreira stopped Platford while Stuart Griffiths, Carl Lewis and Alan Jones were also wicket takers as Luctonians were skittled out for 135.

In reply openers Jack Stockdale (20) and Paul Williams (40) put on an opening stand of 64 which set their side up for victory, eventually finishing on 137-5 off 17.4 overs.

“The last few Saturdays we have struggled for availability but on Sunday everybody was available," said Garnons' captain James Bolton.

“We shared the wickets around well but Alan Jones and Christian Ferreira took wickets at crucial times which stopped Luctonians.

“It was a close game but we had two spinners and they didn’t have any so we wanted to bowl first. It is our third cup final in the last six years and we have won all three which was a mental advantage for us.

“Despite their league form it is a one off game and we recently beat them in the league too so had that advantage.”
