Cricket roll of honour – great prizes on offer
Cricketers have an added incentive to try and top the charts in our Roll of Honour competition this season.
We have joined forces with the Norfolk Cricket Board and Norfolk County Cricket Club to provide exciting prizes for the batsman with the highest individual score and the bowler with the best analysis come the end of the season.
The two individual winners will each receive:
A two-hour specialist coaching session with Norfolk player-coach Chris Brown, a Level Four qualified coach, along with six other winners from Archant weekly titles

Eastern Daily Press cricket writer Philip Banyard said: 'We are grateful to the Norfolk Cricket Board and Norfolk County Cricket Club for their support and we hope these prizes will provide a real incentive to players in the region. The Roll of Honour is a popular feature and we look forward to receiving plenty of entries.'
The Norfolk Cricket Board's cricket development manager Kieron Tuck added: 'The Norfolk Cricket Board see this as a great way of demonstrating our support for local cricket and getting our name and the work we do out to an even wider audience within Norfolk. Part of our mission statement is to inspire cricket growth and quality within the county and we hope these awards will do just that for local club players.
'We are also grateful to Norfolk CCC for supporting this initiative, showing that the co-operation between the NCB and county club to assist local cricket is as strong as it has ever been.'
Only scores and bowling figures from senior, competitive matches will be considered. We regret that friendly matches and youth age group matches cannot be considered, although as always we are happy to feature reports from those games on our sports pages.
Only ECB Category One players are eligible for the end of season prizes. If a non-Category One player finishes top of the Roll of Honour, the next eligible player in the list will win the prize.
Normal Archant competition rules apply.
