A cricket club near Scarborough have thanked supporters for getting them to Lord's.

Folkton and Flixton Cricket Club won the National Village Cup over the weekend.

David Hutchinson, the Club's Secretary, said:

"It's every cricketers' dream to be fair.

All the supporters, I reckon there were about 300 to 400 who came down from Scarborough and not just from Folkton and Flixton, but from all the other clubs around.

We had terrific support from everybody and I hope everybody enjoyed themselves in the sunshine down at Lord's.

We needed to raise some money to get down there and to make it as special as we could possibly could for the players.

I'm delighted to say that the response was unbelievable from local businesses and individuals.

I had people ringing up who I've never heard from before saying they were delighted for us and could they make a contribution.

It was a terrific effort from everybody and delighted to be able to do it in style, to make sure every player had a couple of nights at Lord's so they wouldn't have to go back on the same day.

We raised enough money to do it in style, so a big thank you to everybody who contributed."

Will Hutchinson, a player at the Club, said:

"At the start of the game we struggled and we had to build up a big partnership to get back on top.

But yeah, every bit of it you just had to enjoy while it was there.

It's amazing because we're only small. I think there's only a population of 200 people or something like that.

To get a bunch of cricketers who really enjoy playing together is something quite rare actually.

It's a really good partnership with them.

We want to play with each other all the time which always helps so to share that at Lord's is something special really."
