What an achievement Flixton cricket team did on Sunday September 16 winning the final of the National Village Cup at Lords.

Many, many congratulations I send to the lads. I had hoped to be there as I’m a ‘Caytonian’ exiled here in Hampshire, but I broke my left foot three weeks ago.

My husband and I were at Lords in 1986 to see Forge Valley play YNY SYGERN loose by five runs, what a tense game. Sir Len Hutton was in the crowd in front of us.
