The West Penwith Evening League had their AGM last week and President Brian Richards has asked for the following to be posted to clubs in the far west of the County.
At the recent WPEL AGM, it was agreed to honour the late Peter George with the introduction of a new trophy in his memory and to be played for as a mid-week T20 competition for clubs who compete in the WPEL.
The competition will be played under Runciman Cup rules.
Peter was a highly respected supporter of Cornish cricket and had been Hon. Secretary and Joint Hon.Treasurer of the WPEL for 50 years.
A minute silence was held at the AGM for Peter and also for two other long-serving cricket stalwarts with local cricket connections, Michael Evans and Dougie Oats, who had recently passed away.
Clubs from the West Penwith area are invited to compete in the Runciman Cup T20 ‘Open’ competition.
This competition will be played under existing rules but is ‘open’ to all clubs from the West Penwith area, whether they play in the WPEL or not.
Clubs wishing to compete in this competition should contact the WPEL Secretary, Chris Williams on 07760 388 703 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1st.
The entrance fee is £5.
