Herald Express team captain Dominic Bryant said: "Everyone had a great day and we were very happy to emerge as the tournament winners.
"Many of the teams who entered included players who were not familiar with the delights of cricket, and the day rekindled the sporting flame for many others who hadn't played for a very long time, myself included, which is what the loveLIFE campaign is all about.
"The more we can engage with the public, encourage and promote participation in sport and healthier lifestyles the better for everyone concerned.
"Our thanks goes to the Sanctuary Housing Group for helping to organise the event so effectively, to Barton Cricket Club and its volunteers, to the umpires who gave their time for nothing, and to all the teams that entered and participated in what was a very enjoyable day for all."
