Whitehaven Thirds beat the club’s fourth team at Egremont to win the Burton Cup, the main knockout trophy in the West Cumbria League.
It was the first time that two teams from the same club have contested the final of a competition which was introduced in 1957 after the tailers Montague Burton Ltd presented the trophy to the old Cumberland Senior League.
Thirteen of the players on duty were teenagers, which suggests the Whitehaven club is in good heart and preparing well for a bright future.
The natural venue for such a final would have been at Whitehaven but the Playground is ongoing work on the field so Egremont agreed to take on the fixture.
Batting first the Thirds scored 93-7 in their allotted 20 overs with Charles Minshaw (21) and 14-year-old Kian Larmour (19no) top-scoring.
Maddie Wood, who has had a really good season for club and county, claimed 3-14 whilst Shane Tyson and Arthur Lamb both took two wickets each.
The Fourths reply never had any impetus from the start as and Jordan Hill (3-14) and James Conery (2-5) ensured that no batsman reached double figures.
They eventually finished on 55-9 meaning that the margin of victory was a flattering 38 runs.
West Cumbria League secretary Mike Williams presented the trophy to Luke Blaney, a fitting reward for his first season as captain.
