The winner of the Lucas Fettes Norfolk Cricket League award for Young Player for July was Simon Harwood, 14, of Reepham & Salle.

Playing in Division Eight, Simon scored his maiden senior century, recording 109 not out against Hales Colts, and over the month scored in total 167 runs at an average of 41.75.

He said: 'I had had a steady flow of 50s over the first half of the season and several opening partnerships over 100, but I really wanted to beat my Dad's highest score of 106!

'I am delighted to be receiving this award, and I must pay tribute to the hard work of our groundsmen (Joe Hollis, Martin Clapton and Eddie Holl) for producing such fantastic wickets. Hopefully I can continue to score runs and help secure promotion to Division Seven for next year.'
