Hethersett and Tas Valley Cricket Club results, scores and reports 2007

April - August

April 16th, 2007

Hethersett and Tas Valley Cricket Club opened their season with a friendly against Ketteringham Hall and lost by five wickets in a sun filled afternoon full of runs. 

Top Hethersett batsman Matthew Ellis began where he left off last year with an unbeaten century as the visitors, having won the toss and decided to bat, hit 199-6 from their 40 overs. 

Ellis retired on 100 which included 11 fours and two sixes. He was well supported by brother Richard Ellis who hit 28. The target proved too low, however, with Ketteringham Hall scoring 200-5 with over two overs in hand. Matt Hansell was the pick of the Hethersett bowlers with 3-35 from 5.2 overs.

On Sunday the club have a friendly at Halvergate.

April 30th

Hethersett and Tas Valley got their competitive season off to the best possible start on Saturday with all three teams recording opening day Norfolk League wins.

The firsts opened their Division Two campaign with a two wicket victory over Ketteringham Hall. Ketteringham batted first and notched 181-8 from their allotted 45 overs with Sprong (43) and R. Smith (42 not out) scoring almost half of their runs. Matt Steward led the way for Hethersett with an excellent spell of swing bowling that saw him take 4-24 from 12 overs.

Richard Ellis Jr (34) and Rob Mitchell (19) gave Hethersett and Tas Valley a solid start and they were well backed up by Matthew Ellis (38), Nick Burrett (42) and Matt Steward (26) as they reached their target with two wickets and just over three overs in hand.

Hethersett and Tas Valley Seconds found the going pretty easy against Aldborough with a comfortable nine wicket win in Division Seven. Aldborough notched up a seemingly healthy 168 from 42 overs with R. Struges top scoring with 53. Jon Smee with 4-23 and John Nash with 3-28 did most of the damage.

Hethersett made short work of their target, losing just one wicket in scoring 170 in just 27.3 overs. Miles Kemp was unbeaten on 69 and Tony Wenham hit an unbeaten 50. The only wicket to fall was that of Geoff Chapple after he had hit a useful 35.

The thirds found themselves up against a very youthful and enthusiastic Hales Colts team in Division 10. Batting first Hethersett and Tas Valley hit 201-7 before declaring their innings after 37 overs. Dale Clarke top scored with 46 and there were good contributions from Richard Parslow (35 not out), Craig Brooke (33), Al Watts (22) and Shaun Barker (15).

The Hales innings was dominated by opener Peter Dye who hit an unbeaten 107 with none of the other batsmen getting into double figures. Pick of the bowlers was Danny Whitworth with 3-20 from seven overs.

On Sunday, Hethersett and Tas Valley made it four wins out of four for the weekend when they beat Halvergate by 79 runs in the Mid Norfolk Sunday League Division Two.

Hethersett batted first and hit 169-9 from their 40 overs with Richard Ellis Jr scoring 41, Rob Mitchell 33 and Nick Burrett 43. They then skittled Halvergate out for 90 with Matt Ellis taking 5-32 and Tim Shelley 3-27.

This weekend Hethersett and Tas Valley have another full league programme on Saturday with the firsts at home to Sprowston, the seconds visit Sprowston and the thirds are home to Blundeston. On Sunday the club have a Challenge Cup First Round tie at Hunstanton.  

May 7th

Hethersett and Tas Valley made it two league wins out of two with a comfortable 79 run victory over Sprowston Seconds.

Hethersett batted first and scored a massive 303-4 off their 45 overs with Simon Redhead putting the Sprowston attack to the sword with an unbeaten 112 that included 17 fours and four sixes. He was well supported by Richard Ellis Jr with 54, Nick Burrett with 47, Dave Cosford with 35 and Matt Steward who hit 13 from three balls at the end of the innings.

Sprowston soon got behind the run rate as early wickets fell before Pearce (65) and Doy (85 not out) steadied the ship. Hethersett still ran out comfortable winners with Phil Walmsley the pick of their bowlers with 3-44.

Hethersett and Tas Valley Seconds had a nailbiting one run victory to keep their 100% league record when they visited Sprowston III.

Hethersett batted first and notched 195-8 from their 45 overs with virtually every batsman getting into double figures. Jon Smee top scored with 32.

Sprowston started well in reply but then good bowling from Tony Wenham, who bagged 5-32 from 11 overs, put the brakes on and Sprowston fell agonisingly one run short of their target.

The club has a full fixture list of league matches again this weekend. On Saturday the firsts visit Hardingham and the seconds are home to Norwich Union II. The thirds visit Norwich Union III. On Sunday Hethersett and Tas Valley are away to Saxlingham.

May 14th

Hethersett and Tas Valley are top of Division Two of the Norfolk Cricket League following three consecutive victories. 

On Saturday they saw off the challenge of Hardingham with a comfortable 70-run win. 

Hardingham won the toss and put Hethersett in. They soon recovered from the early loss of opener Nick Burrett with a solid partnership between brothers Richard Ellis Jr (31) and Matthew Ellis (72). A hard-hitting 70 from Dave Cosford that included five sixes and five fours and a belligerent 28 from Matt Steward saw the team to 226 all out from 44.2 overs. 

Hardingham soon fell below the asking rate despite useful knocks from A. Cook (68), Michael Breame (24) and C. Cowles (16). The remainder of the Hardingham batting fell cheaply and they were all out for 156 after just 34.3 overs with Assad Abbas taking 5-28 and Matt Steward 2-40. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley Seconds also made it three league wins out of three with another nailbiting finish in Division Seven of the Norfolk League. 

Having beaten Sprowston by just one run the previous week, they once again had supporters on the edge of their seats as they beat Norwich Union Seconds with the last pair at the wicket. 

Hethersett won the toss and put the opposition in. Norwich Union had solid contributions throughout the innings and finished on 183-8 from their 45 overs with Jon Nash taking 4-39 and Steven Beck 3-38. 

Hethersett lost a number of early wickets and looked to be rocking until veteran Andy Mack came to the crease at number nine and hammered an unbeaten 85 that included 11 fours and three sixes. Hethersett reached their target with the final pairing of Mack and Michael Larkin at the wicket. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley Thirds went down by seven wickets to Norwich Union III. Hethersett batted first and were bowled out for 64 with Jack Smith top scoring with 24 and Dale Clarke hitting 16. In response Norwich Union scored 66-3 in 21 overs with Dan Whitworth the pick of the bowlers with 2-23. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley’s Norfolk Sunday League Division 2 game at Saxlingham was abandoned due to heavy rain. 

This weekend the Saturday teams all have Norfolk League fixtures. The firsts are home to Old Catton, the seconds visit Old Catton II and the thirds are home to Shipdham. On Sunday the team visit Worstead in the Mid Norfolk Sunday League.

Hethersett and Tas Valley made it four wins out of four in the Norfolk League Division Two as their promotion push gathers momentum. 

The comfortably beat Old Catton by nine wickets with a number of fine individual performances. 

Hethersett won the toss and put Old Catton in. The visitors struggled to make headway and only scored at just over three runs an over, finishing on a modest 146-7 which was never going to be enough against a very strong home attack. 

The club’s leading wicket-taker Matt Steward had a field day taking 6-23 from 12 overs, six of which were maidens. 

Hethersett found their task easy despite the early loss of Richard Ellis Jr for just three. Brother Matthew Ellis joined Robert Mitchell at the wicket and a century partnership saw the team home for the loss of just one wicket and with almost 21 overs in hand. Mitchell hit an unbeaten 60 and Ellis ended 80 not out. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley Seconds also made it four consecutive league wins when they beat Old Catton Seconds by five wickets in Division Seven. 

Hethersett won the toss and put Old Catton in. Again the run rate was poor thanks to some tight bowling from the visitors. The home team scored just 139 all out from 44 overs. The wickets were spread out with John Nash taking 4-44, Steven Beck 3-24 and Jon Smee 2-22. 

Highlight of Hethersett’s reply was an unbeaten 63 from Tristan Hunt that included seven fours. The Seconds reached their target with five wickets and almost two overs to spare. 

The Thirds made it a hat-trick of Saturday wins for the club when they beat Shipdham Seconds by three wickets. Shipdam won the toss and elected to bat with opener D. Dodd hitting an unbreaten 101 in his team’s 169-9 from their 45 overs. Dale Clarke and Daniel Whirworth both took 3-28. 

The early Hethersett order fell cheaply before good contributions from Mike Larkin (25), Dale Clarke (18), Shaun Barker (17) steadied the innings. Alex Reeder hit a fine 40 not out that included five fours and two sixes and Jack Smith (18 not out) saw Hethersett home with three wickets and just under eight overs to spare. 

On Sunday, Hethersett and Tas Valley had a convincing five wicket win over Worstead in the Mid Norfolk Sunday League Division Two.  

Worstead won the toss and elected to bat and were skittled out for 112 in 31 overs. Matt Steward was once again the destroyer in chief with 4-14 in 10 overs. He has hit a rich vein of form with the ball with 12 wickets for just 38 runs in 24 overs over the past week. 

Hethersett reached their target for the loss of five wickets after 28.3 overs with opener Tim Shelley scoring almost half the runs with 56. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley’s midweek X1 beat New Buckenham by five runs in the first round of the Wicklewood Shield. 

Hethersett batted first and scored 123-7 from their 20 overs with opener Nick Burrett hitting 62. In reply New Buckenham notched 118-7 with Jack Smith taking 2-15 and Matt Steward 2-1. 

The club’s Under-11 team were well beaten by Thetford Town by 10 wickets in the Norfolk Alliance Under-11 section. 

This Saturday the club has a full league programme with the firsts away to Cringleford Lodge, the seconds home to Norwich and Coltishall Wanderers Fourths and the thirds away to Garboldisham. 

The club then takes off for a two day Bank Holiday tour to Nottingham where they will play Nottingham CC at Colston Bassett on Sunday and Kinoulton on Sunday.

Hethersett and Tas Valley went on the 20-over rampage to beat Earlham Village by 81 runs in the Midweek 20-20 competition. 

Hethersett lost the toss and were put into bat and scored a very healthy 151-9 at well over a run a ball. Star of the batting performance was all-rounder Matt Steward who, batting at number six, smashed an unbeaten 56 that included four fours and four sixes. 

Earlham were always behind the required run rate and were all out for 70 with Miles Kemp taking 2-6 from four overs. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley are through to the second round of the Wensum Midweek Cup after first round opponents Old Catton Nomads conceded the match after failing to put a team together. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley beat Earlham by 81 runs in a 20-20 match.

Rain and bad weather threatened to completely wash out Hethersett and Tas Valley’s Bank Holiday three match tour of Nottinghamshire with play only being possible in the final match.

Games against Kinoulton and Nottingham were abandoned, but Hethersett did see action on the final day of the tour when they took on a very strong club side from Papplewick and Linby and did extremely well to only go down by 23 runs.

Papplewick and Linby won the toss and batted first, scoring a healthy 207-8 from their 40 overs with Jim Rhodes hitting 96. The wickets were shared between the Hethersett bowlers with two each for Matt Steward, Jack Smith and Asad Abbas.

Hethersett’s reply featured three major innings with Matt Ellis hitting 10 fours in his 70,  brother Richard Ellis hitting 23 and all-rounder Matt Steward weighing in with a quick-fire 36 that included three sixes. It wasn’t enough, however, as the visitors fell short of their target with 184-8 against one of the strongest club sides in the Nottingham area.

 

Hethersett and Tas Valley lost to Papplewick and Linby of Nottinghamshire by 23 runs in a friendly.

Hethersett and Tas Valley have produced six of the best over the past two weeks as they continue to take the Norfolk Cricket League by storm.  

And it’s sixes all the way for both the firsts and seconds who both have 100 per cent league records with six wins out of six. They sit proudly at the top of Division Two and Seven respectively  

Meanwhile a youthful and skilful third team have climbed up to third place in Division 10.  

The first team made light work of their last two fixtures with a 94-run win over Cringleford Lodge being followed by a six wicket victory over Topcroft.  

The seconds also recorded comprehensive victories over Norwich and Coltishall Wanderers Fourths by 123 runs and Diss Thirds by nine wickets.  

Not to be outdone, the thirds beat Garboldisham Thirds by 83 runs and Great Melton Fourths by 108 runs.  

There were numerous outstanding performances in those games. Matt Ellis was in outstanding form for the firsts with 87 and 3-15 against Cringleford Lodge and 52 and 3-45 against Topcroft.  

In the Topcroft match, Dave Cosford took 3-33 and Richard Ellis Junior scored 47.  

For the Seconds, Hethersett hammered 268-4 against Norwich and Coltishall Wanderers with major knocks from Tristan Hunt (78 not out), Tony Wenham (64), Geoff Chappell (48) and Tim Elverson (39). Jon Smee weighed in with 4-35.  

For the Thirds, Greg Lochhead hit 71 and Daniel Whitworth took 3-18 against Garboldisham and Tom Brandon-Street hit his maiden club half century with 58 against Great Melton. He received excellent support from Jack Smith (48 not out), Lou Provert (33) and Richard Ellis Senior (33). Jack Smith rounded off a fine display by taking 3-15.  

This Saturday all three teams are in league action again. The firsts visit second in the table Rollesby, the seconds are home to Tacolneston and the thirds visit Hardingham.  

On Sunday Hethersett and Tas Valley are home to Dereham Sunday in the Norfolk Sunday League and on Tuesday (12th June) the club’s Under-11s visit Diss Uner-11s.  

Hethersett and Tas Valley Firsts beat Cringleford Lodge by 84 runs in the Knights Norfolk League Division 2.

Hethersett and Tas Valley are through to the third round of the Wensum Midweek 20-20 cup after defeating Reepham and Salle by 40 runs in the second round.

Hethersett batted first and notched 107 from their 20 overs with solid contributions from Tim Elverson (16), Jimmy Adamson (11), Matt Ellis (18), Matt Steward (21) and Matt Hansell (12 not out).

June 11th 

Hethersett and Tas Valley continued their top of the table form to make it seven consecutive wins in the Norfolk League Division Two with victory over second-in-the-table Rollesby.  

The match was much closer than the winning six wicket margin suggests with Hethersett only reaching their target in the penultimate over and struggling to keep up with a modest run chase for most of their innings.  

Hethersett were without captain and all-rounder Matt Ellis and strike bowler Dave Cosford, both unavailable. Hethersett won the toss and put the home side in on a dull grey day in North Norfolk.  

The home team, who are renowned for being able to defend modest totals, could only score 152 all out with the final wicket falling in the last over. Fast bowler Matt Steward was the star for Hethersett, bowling straight through his 12 overs to take 5-27. The opposition gave him the accolade of the best bowler they have faced this season. Some of the Hethersett work in the field was sloppy, however, as they conceded 37 extras that included 23 wides and eight no balls – almost a quarter of Rollesby’s score.  

In reply, Richard Ellis and Rob Mitchell gave Hethersett a solid start with Ellis going on to make a watchful 43.  

Hethersett found it difficult to increase the pace of their innings against some strong bowling from Rollesby and in deteriorating light. Simon Redhead contributed a valuable 23 before Nick Burrett and James Curson came together to increase the scoring rate and see Hethersett home with just 10 balls remaining. Burrett ended unbeaten on 32 and Curson was 16 not out.  

Hethersett and Tas Valley Seconds suffered their first league defeat of the season when they went down to Tacolneston by 31 runs in Division Seven.  

Hethersett won the toss and put Tacolneston in only to find opener D. Cooke in sparkling form with 103 of the visitors’ total of 162-9. Steven Beck took 3-53 and Chris Bolderstone 3-38.  

Hethersett struggled in reply and only Bolderstone (25), Mike Larkin (25), Tristan Hunt (21) and Russell Cooper (19) reached double figures as they were all out for 131 with C. Turner taking 5-23.  

Hethersett and Tas Valley Thirds also went down – losing by 113 runs at Hardingham in Division 10 to end their run of victories.  

Hardingham batted first and scored 191-9 in their 45 overs with Daniel Whitworth taking 4-59.  

In reply Hethersett crumbled to 78 all out in 36.4 overs with Alex Reeder top scoring with 18.

Hethersett and Tas Valley beat Rollesby by six wickets in the Knights Norfolk League Division Two:
