Ashmanhaugh's Valley good win

An excellent all-round display, particularly in the field, from Ashmanhaugh saw them beat a strong Hethersett and Tas Valley side. After the disappointment of the high-scoring defeat at the hands of Swaffham in the previous game, Ashmanhaugh captain Bernie Everett after winning the toss, invited Hellesdon to bat first.

An excellent all-round display, particularly in the field, from Ashmanhaugh saw them beat a strong Hethersett and Tas Valley side.

After the disappointment of the high-scoring defeat at the hands of Swaffham in the previous game, Ashmanhaugh captain Bernie Everett after winning the toss, invited Hellesdon to bat first.

Stuart Warminger bowled well without any luck but Mike Harman although hampered by injury bowled a very good spell and took four wickets in his 12-over stint.

Lovedeep Brar returning to the team then took over and captured the last five wickets to dismiss Hellesdon in the 42nd over for a below-par score of 186.

While many Hellesdon batsmen got a reasonable start only M Ellis with 47 made a sizeable contribution.

In reply, opener Bernie Everett took a liking to the Hellesdon bowling, and with fellow opener Sam Mackay got Ashmanhaugh off to a very quick start.
