For­mer cap­tain re­mem­bered

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - -

The Mer­sham Pres­i­dent’s XI lifted the Rob Wil­son Me­mo­rial Cup for the first time last week. Mick Smithers’ side – skip­pered by Nobby South­ern – over­came Mer­sham by three runs in a high­scor­ing fi­nal to take top hon­ours. The an­nual tour­na­ment hon­ours Mer­sham’s for­mer 1st XI cap­tain Rob Wil­son, who passed away in 2012. The fi­nal­ists had ear­lier over­come the chal­lenge of Willes­bor­ough to progress into the last two. Mer­sham Cricket Club chair­man Perry Calvert said: “It was a great day to hon­our a great man. “The cricket was played in the man­ner he’d have liked it – hard and fair – and brought to­gether plenty of peo­ple who’d played with Rob.”
