The Voneus Village Cup has been running for almost fifty years. Since 1972 clubs from villages across the British Isles battle for the chance to play in the final at Lords.

The cup is described as giving the opportunity to grassroots levels of the game, where even the smallest village team can ‘live the dream’ and tread the hallowed turf of Lords.
