The club invited local teams to complete in its annual Sportsmen’s Day, cancelled in 2020 because of Covid restrictions. Despite a damp start, competitors were in high spirits, with many simply glad to be taking part.

The tournament was reduced to 24 teams from is customary 28 to help manage numbers better and was won by Congresbury Cricket Club’s  Mike Fisher, Sam Evans, Joe Thompson and Jos Tomlinson. They beat Hannah Vowles’s team “3 Gingers and It” in an exciting and close 10-end final. Hannah, who is the cricket club’s welfare officer, led a team which included cricketers Mick Edmunds and Cam Harding with Amber Rizvi.

Club president Dave Byett presented the teams with their prize money as third place went to Danny Bullock’s football club team who beat Dave Towler’s Cofers team.

The day was voted a resounding success with all saying how great it was to be back after last year’s cancellation – some of the participants even asked for it to be held twice a year.

Thanks to all who helped support and participated in this popular fun day event.
