Barnack won the Rutland League’s John Wilcox Cup competition beating Wisbech by eight wickets in today’s (August 27) final at Barnack.

Wisbech, who did well to put a competitive side out considering they also had a Cambs League fixture at Histon, batted first and were all out for 71 in 27.1 overs.
