#35 - Village Cup and Pride of Cricket 
We are back in action after a busy summer and ready for a winter of highlighting the great recreational cricket community in Hampshire.

Today we celebrate two special wins!

Firstly, Simon Trott of Overton CC who has won the LV-Insurance Pride of Cricket Media Hero Award!

Simon has revolutionised the online activity at Overton CC and great for those efforts to get some national recognition.

And we speak to Sam Moss and Mark Lavelle from Calmore Sports CC. They talk us through a historic day at Lords where Calmore lifted the 2021 Voneus Village Cup!
