Double Winners – Drimpton FC

Congratulations go to Drimpton FC who became Double Winners of the 2021/22 League Cup & the Jack Venn Cup in the Perry St. League Cup final at the weekend.

Drimpton played against Thorncombe in an end to end game . Lots of great action from both sides with Drimpton having a player red carded in the 1st half . At Full time a scoreline of 1 -1 took the game to extra time, it wasn’t until the 2nd period of extra time did Drimpton score 2 quick goals go take the honours 3-1. A great game where both teams put on a great final.

Following the success of last year’s Fireworks event with Broadwindsor Fun Group, Broadwindsor Cricket Club will host the Fireworks event again later this year and are meeting with Andrew Hookings to discuss all the issues involved.

Supporters are always welcome and they have cold beers/ Lagers/ ciders and soft drinks for sale for those warm sunny afternoons.
