In the fourth year of the competition a new name therefore had to be added on the trophy for the winners.
Runners Up: Spofforth
Spofforth batted first and thanks to scores of 43 from Matthew Bird and 22 from Thomas Brotheridge amassed a total of 302. This was a good score, especially against some very good bowling and fielding, but Harrogate had other ideas and accumulated a total of 326.
Harrogate were the deserved winners on a day when they had convincingly won all three of their matches.
