Sessay CC won a dramatic final-run victory against the trophy holders to advance to the next round of the National Village Knockout competition.  Opponents Cleator (in Cumbria) had defeated us heavily at their own ground last season, and gone on to lift the national title at Lords, so the expectation was for a difficult test.

0ST 8104
Sessay restricted Cleator to 160 all-out but appeared to be falling well-short in reply.  However an outstanding innings from Chris Till took the scores to level-pegging and he hit a boundary off the very last ball to seal a triumphant win.  There was a great crowd for the match and a fantastic atmosphere.

0ST 8101
In the next round on July 6th Sessay must travel to Manchester to play Woodhouses.
