The Royal Oak emerged winners of Division 1 in the Clevedon 20:20 Community League finals day held at Dial Hill.

The Clevedon 20:20 Community League held their finals day with Swiss Valley taking on The Gig Club in Division 2, followed by The Royal Oak versus Clevedon RRC in Division 1.

The Gig Club batted first and with good knocks from Ed Hartley and Martin Brown, achieved 123 runs at the conclusion. In response, a stunning display by Simon Barzotelli (52 retired), ably supported by Tom O’Rourke (37 not out), reached their target with overs to spare.

At the Champagne moment, both teams were congratulated for enthralling the crowd, but the bubbly was awarded to Neil Swift for his stunning catch.

In match two, The Royal Oak batted first and seemed to struggle, but the arrival of Mike Muston steadied the ship and duly scored 52 retired helping them to 174. In reply, The Rugby Club lost an early wicket, but with a masterclass from Ben Hazeldene, were well on their way to contesting the required total.

In what proved to be a most exciting last over, they were poised to take the spoils and with Joe Tucker having scored 30 off seven deliveries which included three sixes, Hazeldene came back in and continued where he had left off, but was stumped with two balls to spare, having achieved the highest recorded innings of 62.

The Rugby Club fell short by just nine runs and at the Champagne moment both teams were again congratulated, with the bubbly going to Tucker.

At the presentation, thanks were extended to Clevedon Cricket Club, with a special mention to Mike Hanley, to the sponsors, the scorers and all the players, in particular the juniors, whose contribution had been truly inspiring, as well as the supporters who had all made this Community League such a success.

John Vickerstaff, captain of The Royal Oak was presented with the overall winners trophy and James Barzotelli, captain of Swiss Valley received the Division 2 trophy.

Awards were also presented to Mike Muston (best batting average 114), Tony Dauncey (best bowling average 8.3), Gary Simons, captain of The Gig Club and Ben Hazeldene, captain of Clevedon RFC.

Also all trophies were presented by Jake Lintott from Clevedon Cricket Club.
