Cayton Cricket Club fell just short of wining the Grey Fox Trophy for 2017 as they lost by six wickets against Hall Park Templars at North Marine Road in a game reduced to 20 overs. Colin Denton top scored with 27, but a score of 89-8 was always going to be difficult to defend but the team show great fighting spirit in reducing Park to 42-4 as Denton (3-17) and Mark Wells (0-6 off 4 overs using his full run, what a sight!) bowled superb spells. Hall Park came out on top for a deserved win on the day and we offer them full congratulations! Many thanks to captain Steve McAleese who has been superb in organising the teams and all his fellow eighteen players who have been superb throughout the tournament, along with Claire and Ted for scoring and those who have supported the team.
