The  75th Andrew Cup Final, and the tenth-anniversary final to be held at Mount Ambrose Cricket Club, was a well-contested affair played out on a dry, cool evening. Mullion seconds prevailed, to add to their success in 2021. For Praze, it was a back-to-back final disappointment and the fourth such since 2011.

Having been put in to bat  Praze got off to a flyer with 31 on the board in four overs. Aaron Futcher made 31 before being fourth out at 60 in the 12th over. Ollie Roach it 2 sixes in his 32 but Mullion fought back well as the innings ended at 110-9. Joe Casley picked up 4-19 at the end.

Mullion skipper Harry Bray and Jude Tripconey (18) put on 38 for the first wicket in six overs. After Luke and Dan Tripconey fell at 69-3 in the 12th over Bray steered his side home and was awarded Player of the Match for his 45 after being dismissed in the penultimate over. With 25 required off four overs, it was ‘game on’ but a couple of boundaries from Michael Cockings relieved the pressure and the winning run came with five balls to spare. Anthony Vingoe, representing the new competition sponsors Vingoe Family Law made the presentations supported by the League Vice-Chair Robert Jobson.
