Bailey’s Bay dethrone St David’s in Eastern Counties Cup final

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Bailey’s Bay have wrestled the Eastern Counties Cup from holders St David’s after an emphatic 80-run win in the final at Lord’s this afternoon.

Tre Manders scored his third straight century to set a platform for Bailey’s Bay to win the Eastern Counties Cup final

Guest player Rodney Trott took six wickets after fellow guest player Tre Manders had made an imperious 114 not out — his third century in successive innings — to banish memories of 2021 when Bay were humbled in being dismissed for 100.

Bay recovered from a rocky start to get to 218 for seven declared, largely owing to the boundary-hitting prowess of Manders and then turned the screws to put St David’s in trouble early.

Colt Macquille Walker took three early wickets to reduce St David’s to 18 for four and, despite a valiant recovery led by guest players Chris Douglas (44) and Macai Simmons (42), the vanquished champions ultimately had no answer for the better-drilled outfit once Trott and colt Sharye Tavares, who took one wicket, affected the match with their off spin.
