Norfolk League Division One - Home to Aldborough - Won by 122 runs

A fine all round team performance saw Hethersett and Tas Valley see off the challenge of close rivals Aldborough in the Norfolk League Division One by a massive 122 run margin. 

Hethersett were on form with both the bat and ball, with their opponents unable or unwilling to chase a target of just under 250. 

Hethersett won the toss and elected to bat as they went in search of maximum points to keep themselves top of Division One. In form batsmen Tim Shelley (76) and Matt Ellis (56) built a solid foundation for a late onslaught with a century partnership for the second wicket. Then Matt Steward crashed three sixes and a four in a rapid fire 38 that helped Hethersett to 245 all out with just over an over remaining. 

Aldborough never took up the challenge with opener Ged Cooper labouring for 23 runs from the opening 24 overs and most of the other batsmen intent on not losing their wicket. The result was a score of 123-8 from their 45 overs. The only threat to a Hethersett victory came from rain clouds that loomed large throughout the day but held off apart from a brief 10 minute break. 

Hethersett’s bowlers were on top form with the pacey Dave Cosford leading the way with a hostile spell that brought him 1-23 from 11 overs. Lee King took 2-35 spinner Assad Abbas 2-36 and Matt Steward completed a fine all round performance with 2-13 from eight overs. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley beat Aldborough by 122 runs in the Norfolk League Division One.
