Cricket Club Presentation Evening

Hethersett and Tas Valley Cricket Club held its annual fireworks and presentation evening at its Flordon Headquarters. 

Club chairman Tony Smith reflected on a weather affected season that had brought a number of challenges for the club and proved slightly disappointing after a number of successful years. Hethersett’s first team finished third in Division Two of the Norfolk Alliance after a poor start. The club’s second team finished eighth in Division Four and the thirds finished third in Division Seven of the Norfolk League. 

The success of the third team with its mixture of some very good juniors and some more experienced players has been one of the season’s highlights. I don’t think I have ever had so many players e-mail and say how much they have enjoyed their cricket,” the chairman said. 

He went on to underline a strict discipline policy in force at the club, admitting that there had been a few problems during the season which the club was dealing with. These had helped to make 2012  “a challenging season.” 

He underlined the strength of depth at the club by praising a number of young players including Joel Howard for his maturity and performances for the second team, Robbie Matthews for captaining the Sunday side which finished third in the league and young bowler Fraser Ellis who had enjoyed an outstanding season. 

He looked to the future with optimism: “Next season we will be continuing to support our junior set-up, actively looking for new players at both junior and senior levels and looking to become more organised when it comes to social and fund-raising events. 

The trophy for performance of the season went to David Coyle for his innings of 65 in a dramatic last ball two wicket Norfolk Alliance win over Fakenham. Coyle put on over 100 runs in partnership with Matt Steward and also took 5-29 in the same match. Robbie Matthews was named player of the year.
