Final to be replayed at Southgate

National Club Championship logo

Kibworth and Malden Wanderers will meet at Southgate to replay the Cockspur Cup final on Sunday September 21.

The initial tie, played at Lord's last Tuesday, fell foul of the weather with Kibworth struggling at nine for two in reply to Malden's 143 all out.

Losing finalists last year, Kibworth, inspired by Aamir Mahmood, looked set to regain the trophy they lifted in 2004 after reducing their Surrey opponents to 25 for four.

Malden responded through Alan Cope (47) and James Bond (27) but their total was well below par.

However, Malden made a perfect start as Michael Cottrell and a run-out accounted for both Kibworth's openers.

With an intriguing climax in store, the rain made an unwelcome appearance and play was duly abandoned.

Sunday's match will start at 11am.
