HISTORY

The West Penwith League was formed in 1902 to formalise the many friendly games that were played in the area between local village teams. Many of the clubs have sadly disappeared since then, including previous winners of this competition Sennen, Sancreed, Townshend, Carnhell, St Hilary, JHB/Holmans, Madron and more recently Long Rock and Halsetown.

In 1966  the likes of St Buryan, Paul, Sancreed, St Levan and Zennor joined the Cornwall Cricket League and the  West Penwith League then evolved into the West Penwith Evening League (WPEL) and became a mid-week competition.

In 1934 the Rt. Hon. Walter Runciman MP, 1st Viscount of Doxford, presented a trophy to Penzance Cricket Club which became 'The Runciman Cup' for which clubs now compete.  This magnificent trophy is engraved 'Penzance Cricket Club Sportsmans Cup, Presented by Rt Hon Walter Runciman MP'.  The trophy then became the WPEL mid-week cup competition, with the final an important event in the local sporting calender.  The trophy has been played for annually since then, with the exception of the bulk of the War year period from 1940 to 1945.  Walter Runciman was MP for St Ives between 1929 and 1937.
