Sponsored by the Alan Porter Sports Foundation, the event saw players from both the A and B teams battle it out, with the A team being crowned the winners.

Alan, previously the chairman of The Cricket Society Trust, set up the charitable foundation to help encourage youngsters to enjoy and play sport.

“They thoroughly enjoyed it,” he said, “There were seven sixes and they are just getting better and better.”
