Both travelling teams, the Transformers and the Thundercats are formed predominantly from players from the Corefocus Sunday softball league in Jersey, with a total of 5 teams represented within the 2 squads. The players do not compete in the same squad, and each took a little time to find their rhythm as a result, with both having a mixed first day of competition. Transformers won 2 of their 6 matches, and Thundercats taking 3 out of 5 matches played on day 1.
Whilst the weather certainly was not in the teams favour, with heavy showers making grounds tricky to maintain any momentum at bat or in defence, the Thundercats had really found their groove, winning both the semis and the final convincingly, and taking the title with innings to spare having built up a 15 run lead in the 5th. Final score 20 - 5 to see the Thundercats crowned Cardiff Diffodil Cup Champions 2022.
