SDCA president Daniel Storey had the final word on the weekend in praise of those who made Sunday’s T20 finals showcase a success.

“I would firstly like to thank Greg and Shane who were the curators and Helene and Deb for scoring first grade. I would also like to thank Dave Paget for umpiring the seconds and firsts,” he said.

The final results saw JPC hold off Valley (full story) at top level while earlier in the day Valley catered for second grade side Creeks (full story) and third grade contender JPC (full story).
