Giggleswick School was awarded the Forty Club Trophy at the end of last season, and was rightly proud of the achievement; and so this fixture being played only the day before the last day of term, was going to be a special occasion. Callum Lockett, who was presented the Trophy at the 2014 XL Annual Dinner by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, skippered the School side, opened the bowling, dominated the batting and lead the XI to a worthy win by 6 wickets in this 40 over match. After 20 overs, the Forty Club, which had earlier posted a total of 209, felt quietly confident as they had the school 63 for 3, but the master-blasters took on the XL spinners and sent the ball to all corners! A great occasion, much enjoyed by all the XL players and supporters and the XL adjudicators were delighted to present an XL pennant to Callum, and the Man of the Match Award to Ben Howell.
