The David Setters Cricket Trophy returned to great success on Friday June 25th at the HAC cricket grounds in London. This charity event raised over £19k this year, with a cumulative total for the Motor Neurone Disease Association of just over £100k since 2017! A superb effort from all involved.
Companies that competed for the trophy included KRM22, The London Metal Exchange, Euronext, ICE, Iron Mountain Data Centers, and StoneX Group Inc. With KRM22 and Euronext first doing battle for the wooden spoon after the group stage, it was left to ICE who overcame London Metal Exchange and 2019 champs Iron Mountain Data Centers who defeated StoneX Group Inc. to reach the 2021 grand final! Congratulations to ICE who went on to prevail in the final over Iron Mountain Data Centers!
