Norfolk League Division One - May 3rd away to Beccles Seconds

Summertime and the livin’ is easy could be the first line of an appropriate song for Hethersett and Tas Valley as they ripped Beccles apart in their opening game in the top division of the Norfolk League.

Hethersett won by 103 runs at a canter against opponents who were relegated from the Norfolk Alliance last season.

Moving into unknown territory, Hethersett were soon amongst the runs after being put into bat by the home side.

The new opening partnership of Richard Ellis and Carl Puttock opened brightly, hitting 13 fours between them but both falling just short of what would have been deserved half centuries. Ellis (45) and Puttock (48) had laid the foundations for a Hethersett onslaught with Matt Ellis slamming 76, an innings that included eight fours and two sixes.

Simon Redhead (46 not out) and Nick Burrett (29 not out) continued to turn the screw as Hethersett reached 304-3 from 45 overs at over a run a ball.

Spin demon Assad Abbas was the bowling star as Beccles struggled to a total of 201 all out with none of the home batsmen looking likely to stop the Hethersett juggernaut. Abbas finished with 4-36 as he bamboozled the opposition into submission. There were two wickets for Tim Shelley and one each for the two Matts – Ellis and Steward.

The Thirds lost to Blundeston by 34 runs in Division 10. Blundeston scored 181-9 with Dale Clarke taking 3-26. In reply, Hethersett were all out for 147 with Alex Reeder top scoring at number nine with an unbeaten 38.
