A38 Trophy - 2021 Result

It was another great evening last night, (16th July), with the annual Alfreton vs Swanwick fixture, playing for A38 trophy.

A traditional match between 14 pairs of Members and guest, there’s always been a competitive but friendly rivalry between the two sides to see who keeps the A38 Trophy for the next 12 months.

Chris Burnham for Alfreton and Phil Walters (ably assisted by Steve Nutt) for Swanwick, had posted their team selections earlier in the week and the weather last night was perfect for the match to play out.

Swanwick were the trophy holders having won in the previous year, but this time Alfreton overtook Swanwick’s early lead to be 7-6 up with just the last game to complete.

Well done to Nigel Smith and Tony Morgan for securing that last and winning point for Alfreton. The final result was a close fought 8-6 victory.

The post match barbecue and beer went down well and over £550 was raised on the night for the Club and the Captains Charity, East Midlands Freewheeler . Thank you to all who organised and participated in the event.
