WINS FOR NORTH RUNCTON AND BARNEY
On a gloriously sunny September Sunday, North Runcton won the Hunts County Bats Senior Cup. Great Melton were stifled by some accurate bowling and seemed to lose crucial wickets at the points where they looked as though they were about to break the stranglehold. They were all out for 89 runs. In reply, North Runcton’s openers knocked off the runs without losing a wicket. Ben Skipper scored 34 n.o. but the Man of the Match was Michael Crisp, who hit 55 n.o. Michael Crisp received a bespoke Hunts County Bat worth £300.
The Hunts County Bats Junior Cup Final was much closer and resulted in a win for Barney over Snettisham. The Man of the Match, who also received a bespoke £300 Hunts County Bat, was Liam Chanell. He scored a crucial 40 runs and took 2 for 45. He was the man who steered Barney to victory.
