A team of cricketers who attend day services in Bridlington have won a cricket tournament that was held on home turf.

The tournament saw adults who attend day centres in all corners of the East Riding descend on the ‘oval’ at Priory View Day Centre to compete for the much sought after winner’s trophy.

The weather was kind to the eight teams who competed on the day, attracting a good crowd of supporters who all enjoyed the event.

Cllr Richard Harrap, East Riding of Yorkshire Council portfolio holder for adult and carer services, was bowled over with the level of sportsmanship displayed on the day.

“It was wonderful to see so many keen cricketers taking part in what has become a firm favourite on the sporting calendar for our day services, he said.

“There was a fantastic amount of not only teamwork going on but also support between the rival teams and from the crowd of spectators too which made for a truly enjoyable day.

“Well done to everyone involved in helping to make the event such a success.”

Priory View (team one), who are pictured above, came out on top in the competition, beating Millers (team two) from Beverley in the final, with some superb batting from team captain David Newton and Michael Sampson, and good bowling by Paul Berriman.
