Fords Bridge slugged it out with Louth to earn the right to play in the 2021 BDCA grand final on Saturday, with Fords Bridge coming out victorious after both teams scrapped and struggled for every run on a frugal Davidson Oval.

In a match where boundaries were golden, bowlers Michael Marshman and Anthony Azevedo did a great job for Fords Bridge, but ultimately it would be the batting that would decide the game.

It was Tom Oldfield who would provide the match winning innings, blasting 43 runs in the space of seven overs to propel Fords Bridge to a match winning total. Tom was supported by the judicious, Brett Sheilds who carried his bat for the full 40 overs remaining unbeaten on 34 runs. Fords Bridge was ultimately victorious by 46 runs.
