Teams ready for cup final

Silverware will be up for grabs when the first showpiece event of the local cricket season takes place tomorrow evening (Friday, June 29) as Elton take on old rivals Ashford in the 2012 Longstone League Cup Final.

As usual, the final, which is played over 15 eight-ball overs per side, is being staged at the attractive Great Longstone cricket ground and commences at 6.30pm.

At the recently played semi-final stage, Elton defeated Darley Dale and Ashford put out Calver.

Although Elton have tended to edge their recent games against Ashford, there is very little if anything to choose between the two teams and, with Ashford running into excellent form in recent weeks, a highly competitive final is assured.
