Tribute T20 Kernow Crash Finals Day at Grampound Road CC

Penzance’s recent domination of League and Cup competitions came to an end at Grampound Road on Bank Holiday Monday with Callington winning the Tribute T20 Kernow Crash in convincing fashion.

Callington dominated the final restricting Penzance to 104-9.

Robert Mutch (4-11)  did the early damage dismissing Jack Paull, Christian Purchase, Antony Angove and Greg Smith with only 28 on the board.

Tom Wells made 31  but with Harry Sawyers taking 4-11 Penzance struggled to reach three figures.

Burns was stumped down the legside off Angove and Greg Smith picked up the wickets of Libby and Rhys Davies.

In the morning semi-final, Kelvin Snell made 42 for Wadebridge to get them to 124-6.
