We are very pleased to report that Cardiff MCCU were victorious yesterday in their league final at Lords, the Home of Cricket*.
The annual MCC Universities Challenge Final featured the squad of talented cricketers from Cardiff University, Cardiff Metropolitan and University of South Wales, where they faced Loughborough MCCU. The team signed a sponsorship deal with us, Insight Law, earlier this year and we are delighted with their hard work and results.
The match was an exciting one - Loughborough won the toss and fielded first with Cardiff 291 all out. Loughborough needed to better this score but fell short with 266 all out resulting in Cardiff MCCU claiming the victory by 25 runs. This result helps to finish the year on a high for the Crimson Caps, also reaching the semi final in the BUCS Championships a couple of weeks ago. Some great performances all round and we’d like to pass on our congratulations to Mark O'Leary, support staff and players.
