Hethersett & Tas Valley win the Bernard Matthews Cup

The Bernard Matthews Cup Final was won by Hethersett & Tas Valley in the final over. Two towering sixes clinched the victory, when everyone was watching nervously, following the loss of several quick wickets. Downham were unable to make the breakthrough after they had posted 131 in their allotted overs. Hethersett had 90 runs on the board before the first wicket fell. But it was high drama all the way to the end: a brilliant match.

Bircham convincingly win the Challenge Cup

In the Challenge Cup Final, Bircham soundly defeated a very young and talented Acle side. Batting first they amassed a formidable score of 194 in their 30 overs. The prospect of rain caused the overs to be reduced. Facing a daunting target, Acle obviously decided to go for it. When the rain began to fall, they could have decided to “give in” to the weather. Instead they came out with all guns blazing. This was a high risk strategy but sadly, for them, wickets began to fall too quickly and they were bowled out.
