ADRIAN Noott said small margins cost Falmouth dear on Wednesday evening as they lost their Vinter Cup crown to St Just – but added they will battle hard to win it back next year.

It was a record breaking night at Camborne for the Twenty20 game with the highest total being notched up in the final during the competition’s 80 year history.

St Just put on 173-7, beating the previous record set in 1953 by Camborne in a game which was also against Falmouth by one run, with opening batsman Neil Curnow top scoring with 44 and Australian Harry Medhurst hitting 42.

Falmouth’s response of 152-3, which included half centuries from Anup Revandkar and Kieran Rodda, was the highest ever by a losing side in a Vinter final and was also the fifth biggest total by any club. The aggregate of 325 also beat the mark of 309 set in 1953.

After the match, Noott said: “What we learnt on the night was Twenty20 is a game defined by small margins.

“When you lose by 21 runs, you look back at the match and you see the things like a dropped catch, conceding no balls for our fielding on two occasions like we did or the amount of extras conceded overall with 20 and you can see where you lost.

“There are a lot of positives we can take out of the game. St Just are the best team in the Cornwall League at the moment and on the night we weren’t overawed and maybe on another night we might have won against another side.

“We are not a bad T20 side and can say we are the second best in West Cornwall. We want to play well in everything we got involved in and now we’ll take a look back at the Vinter campaign, take stock and see what we need to do with the squad to try and win it in 2015.”
