Hethersett and Tas Valley (20 pts) beat Great Yarmouth (9 pts) by four runs in the Knights Norfolk League Division Three.

Hethersett and Tas Valley maintained their 100 per cent league record following a nail-biting last ball victory over promotion rivals Great Yarmouth.

Both sides played some excellent cricket on a hot and humid day that tested their fitness and which saw Hethersett fight back after a shaky start.

Batting first, they failed to come to terms with a strong Yarmouth attack with only James Curson of the early batsmen looking at ease. With six wickets down for 85, it looked as if Yarmouth would be set a modest total.

The Hethersett tail wagged to considerable effect, however, with fine knocks from John Curtis (46) and Matt Steward (26 not out) taking their side to 192-9 from their 45 overs,

Excellent bowling from the Hethersett pace quartet of Matt Ellis, John Curtis, Matt Steward and Andy Mack saw Yarmouth fall behind the required run rate with Ellis in outstanding form with the ball.

Yarmouth needed 15 from Curtis? last over and 10 from the final two balls to tie and two sixes to win. Curtis' penultimate ball was crashed for six but he kept his head to bowl line and length for a dot ball that saw Hethersett home by just four runs to stay top with five consecutive victories.

Hethersett and Tas A made it a club double over Yarmouth with a 45-run victory in Division Nine. They made 193-7 and then skittled Yarmouth out for 148. The win takes them up to third place.
