SATURDAY was a momentous day for South Wilts as they celebrated a hat-trick of ECB Southern Electric Premier League titles with victory over Havant at Lower Bemerton.

Tom Morton’s side added the league title to their trophy collection, a fortnight after scooping the twenty20 cup, after completing a 48-run win in the finale showdown.

The skipper, who took over the reins from James Hayward this season, said: “So, we achieved what we intended to do four months ago back in early May. Three titles on the trot is some going.”

“To win the title in my first season as captain is special, as is winning two of the three major individual awards (batting and wicket-keeping), but it’s not about me, it’s been a great team effort and everyone should be proud of their achievements.”
