Maurices family will present a cup which will be presented to the best performing local team, and will likely be kept on display by Trevor at the Duke of Wellington Pub, the venue of many of Maurices most memorable events over the years.
There will be no entry fees for teams, we just ask if people will bring a raffle prize please because the proceeds will pay for the hire and use of the facilities at Eastvill Village Hall. Teams are asked to be present for a draw at 3pm.
