Clive Huxley Knockout Cup Rules 2023


The Clive Huxley Cup is sponsored by the family of the late Henry Clive Huxley and his wife Jill, of Bosherston and Stackpole Cricket Club. Clive always had a great love of cricket both as a player and supporter. He sponsored the first Pembrokeshire Ladies Cup cricket competition at it's conception, The Skelfayre Cup and when his family asked if they could rename the Cup in recognition of his lifelong interest in the game, the P.L.C.A. were delighted to accept and at the same time offer their thanks to the Huxley family for their continued interest in the competition.
