This coming Sunday (August 25) sees what is sure to be a thrilling climax to the Budleigh Salterton CC Community League.
Three of the seven teams competing in this years popular competition have already booked their finals day berths.
The Doctors, the Robins and the Budleigh CC Youth Academy team will be joined by the winners of Tuesday night’s meeting between the Feathers and Withy Dads.
The competition was cancelled last season due to the mid summer flooding of the ground, but this year has been different story with some fine cricket being played throughout the season.
The Robins won the 2011 competition and will no doubt be keen to be crowned the top team once more, but they will face stiff opposition!
Matches will be played throughout the day with the first match due to start at 10.30 am.
Following the end of the event and presentation of the Community Shield there will also be a presentation to the person who in the competitions organisers view is considered to the The Player of The Tournament.
The Community League individual team player awards will be presented at the clubs Senior awards evening on Friday, September 13.
Club Secretary Kevin Curran said: “We hope for a good dry day and as this competition always talked about and followed so enthusiastically throughout the town we do invite and welcome non members to come down to the ground and enjoy the finals day with us which will finish with a disco for all Community League players and guests and for all club members, due to start at about 7.30 pm.”
