Draw to follow


We have decided to shake up the structure of the League for 2017.

This is because the promotion and relegation from last season would otherwise have resulted in teams having to travel excessive distances. (In two cases a journey in excess of 80 miles).

AGM Decisions

There was a splendid turnout for the AGM and of the ten proposed rule changes, five were accepted.

Click here to view the results of the proposed rule changes.

As you can see decisions were made by overwhelming majorities.


On a gloriously sunny September Sunday, North Runcton won the Hunts County Bats Senior Cup. Great Melton were stifled by some accurate bowling and seemed to lose crucial wickets at the points where they looked as though they were about to break the stranglehold. They were all out for 89 runs. In reply, North Runcton’s openers knocked off the runs without losing a wicket. Ben Skipper scored 34 n.o. but the Man of the Match was Michael Crisp, who hit 55 n.o. Michael Crisp received a bespoke Hunts County Bat worth £300. The Hunts County Bats Junior Cup Final was much closer and resulted in a win for Barney over Snettisham. The Man of the Match, who also received a bespoke £300 Hunts County Bat, was Liam Chanell. He scored a crucial 40 runs and took 2 for 45. He was the man who steered Barney to victory.

A large crowd enjoyed a thrilling win for Hethersett & Tas Valley over Swaffham. Hethersett batted first and got off to what could have been a disastrous start, losing Ian Bryce for just one run. Bryce had scored 138 just two days before. What followed was a real team effort with everybody chipping in. John Curtis contributed a well crafted 44. The innings closed on 152. The pick of the Swaffham bowlers was Maurice Dye to took 3 for 27. In reply, Swaffham seemed to lose wickets at all the wrong moments. They finished up all out for 89. The best of their batting were Ryan Bradbury 27 and Matthew Brockman-Smith also 27. The pick of the bowlers were John Curtis 3 for 7 and Sam Norton 3 for 13. However the best bowling performance and Man of the Match was awarded to Lee King 4 for 24. His contribution was considered the best because he removed the top order batsmen, which most certainly swung the match Hethersett’s way.


On a gloriously sunny day at Sprowston, a large crowd of supporters witnessed an exciting contest between Snettisham and Barney. Barney won the toss and elected to field. Snettisham got off to a very sound start and had over 50 runs on the board before the first wicket fell. What followed was a determined batting performance: Damian (Trigger) Twiddy 44, Danny Suckling 39 and Michael Herbert 38 n.o. At the close Snettisham had amassed a respectable 169 for 5. The pick of the Barney bowlers was Liam Riseborough 3 for 47. In reply, Barney took the attack to Snettisham with some fine stroke play as well as some exciting big hitting. Aaron Riseborough kept the target score firmly in his sights with an attractive 31. Jack Burton added 33, as did Liam Channell 18 and Ciaran Chapman 17 n.o. However, the Man of the Man contribution came from Mark Spillett 42 n.o. Everyone agreed that he had held Barney together and steered them all the way to 171 for 5 and victory.
