Saker's six wickets power Reigate to Conference Cup glory

Saker's six wickets power Reigate to Conference Cup glory

Reigate Priory, league champions from Surrey, added The Conference Cup to their successes with a 96-run mauling of Bromley in the postponed final at Ealing CC on Sunday.

Neil Saker, the former Surrey seam-bowler, destroyed Bromley's chances with six wickets to take the man of the match award on a lovely sunny day, as befitting a competition sponsored by Barbados & Smile Group Travel. The Ealing ground looked a picture with its balconied pavilion, manicured outfield and line of plane trees standing majestically above the Woodville Gardens fence.
