A38 Trophy - 2022 Result

It was another great evening last night, (15th July), with the annual Alfreton vs Swanwick fixture, playing for A38 trophy.

A traditional match between 14 pairs of Members and guests, 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.

Alfreton were the trophy holders having won in 2021, and the match this year, as usual, was a nip and tuck with each side winning points. With one game to go Swanwick lead by 7-6 with just the last game to complete.

Alfreton needed to win that last game to retain the Trophy, but it was well done to Alan Bramley and Dan Housley who secured a half in that game to make the final result a Swanwick win by 7.5-6.5.

The post match food and beer went down well and over £160 was raised on the night for the Club. Thank you to all who organised and participated in the event.
