Norfolk League Division One - May 10th home to Bungay

Hethersett and Tas Valley are setting a hot pace at the top of Division One of the Norfolk League with wins in their opening two games to go joint top with Old Buckenham A. 

They followed up their comfortable opening day victory over Beccles  with a nail-biting one wicket victory over a very good Bungay side at Flordon in a match that went to the last over with the last Hethersett pair at the wicket. 

Hethersett looked to be on their way to a comfortable victory when chasing 182 runs, but a middle order collapse had home supporters sitting on the edge of their seats. In the end a fine unbeaten 66 by Matt Ellis saw the home team to victory with just five balls left. 

Hethersett won the toss and put Bungay in. Tight bowling restricted the Waveney Valley club to 181-8 from their 45 overs and it would have been a lot less without 32 extras and the fact that half century maker Yorke was dropped before scoring. Spinner Asad Abbas took 2-30 and Lee King 2-52. 

Hethersett started well with Carl Puttock and Richard Ellis putting on 28 for the first wicket. Brothers Richard and Matt Ellis then added 46 for the second wicket before Richard was dismissed for a hard hitting 44. At that point Hethersett were well up with the run rate. 

Matt Ellis continued to take the fight to the Bungay bowlers, but the Hethersett mid order caved in until Lee King came to the wicket to add 33 and bring down a run rate that had crept alarmingly up to over seven an over. 

Wickets continued to fall after Kings dismissal and Phil Walmsley was dismissed off the last ball of the penultimate over with Hethersett still requiring three to win. Ellis had already ridden his luck, being dropped in the 44th over. The Hethersett skipper held his nerve, however, to smash a boundary off the first ball of the final over to bring Hethersett victory by one wicket in a match played in tremendous spirit by two sides full of enthusiasm and ability. 

Hethersett and Tas Valley Thirds recorded their biggest ever winning margin with a 10 wicket victory over North Elmham Seconds. 

Elmham batted first and were all out for 165 in just 29 overs. Alex Reeder took 4-54 and Miles Kemp 2-11. 

Hethersett made short work of their run chase, scoring 167 without loss with Kemp unbeaten on 51 and Ross Jones unbeaten on 85 which included 13 fours and three sixes.
