Spiritual home of Over 60's first XI
25th July 2017
Suffolk Over 60's vrs Norfolk Over 60's
Norfolks season came crashing down into oblivion as Suffolk did the double in 5 days, soundly defeating the visitors at Stowmarket
Inserted Suffolk took full advantage of some wayward gimme short bowling to post 185-5 with only Spaxman Shales and Bennett troubling the home team, 27 overs for 68 runs.
Norfolk lost Roper Bennett Davies and Lund in double quick time, and their all round bowling attack was far superior on the day, with a far more restrictive field.
Norfolk all out for 117 in 40 overs, Pearse 29 Lofthouse 27 Shales 26
