Having defeated Writtle away in the Semi-Final, the Wanstead A team had one more stern test to retain the Sims Cup for the Essex Summer Rapid Knockout: another showdown with Barking A.
Wanstead has held the Sims Cup since 2019, while the Knockout was sidelined by Covid lockdowns. Wanstead A has had to wait a long time to erase the memory of 2019 when it was Wanstead B team that won the all-Wanstead Final that year.
Congratulations to Skipper Ashley on picking up the silverware at has first attempt, with excellent support from his squad. Find the full report on the Final on the KO page – link below.
