Long Sutton won the match, and their trophy was presented to them by Julian Proctor.

This was the third year the annual event has been held at the cricket club and many people turned out to watch the game.

A raffle was held at the match, followed by a barbecue with live music in the evening at the Jolly Crispin pub in Lutton which was a sold-out event.

The money raised is going to Prostate Cancer and the Long Sutton Cricket Club Equipment Fund.

One of the organisers, Linda Harding, said: “The day went really well and we had a really good turnout, plus we were very lucky with the weather.

“People were very generous with the raffle, and we are very grateful to The Jolly Crispin pub for providing all of the food in the evening, the proceeds from which all went to our charities.”
