Red Hart triumph

AFTER being the whipping boys of The Sheringham and District 20 Over League for a number of years the cricketers from Bodham Red Hart have finally come good, winning the league for the first time.

AFTER being the whipping boys of The Sheringham and District 20 Over League for a number of years the cricketers from Bodham Red Hart have finally come good, winning the league for the first time.

The team thoroughly deserved their title as they were the only team in the league to play all 12 of their matches and they won ten of these to finish the season well clear of their nearest rivals.

In their final match of the season they beat Holt Railway by 27 runs, scoring 130-9 in their 20 overs and then dismissing their opponents for 103. Ironically one of the two matches they lost was back in June against the league's bottom team, West Runton Village Inn, who racked up a hugely impressive 175-4 and then dismissed The Red Hart for 88 while the other came a month later at East Runton where Sheringham Crown scored 124 to win by 64 runs.

These were just two blips in their season and the results showed what can be achieved if players believe in themselves and stick together. Holt Railway and Sheringham Crown shared second place after The Railway won their final match by five wickets, scraping 118-5 in reply to The Crown's 116-5.
