Hethersett Hawks round off league season with impressive win

PUBLISHED: 17:33 07 September 2017

Hethersett Hawks/ Myhill Decorators rounded off their South-East and Eastern League campaign with a rearranged Division Two match with Norwich.

The visitors had a makeshift team on the day who, to their credit, never gave up but they were no match for the Hawks who were even able to rest more experienced riders and give extended runs to Ayrin and George Larter, the ever improving Paul Delaiche and recent recruit Danny Machin.

The victory for Hethersett B ensured the runners-up spot in the final table and the side had Machin, Liam Webster and Glyn Morgan unbeaten.

Hethersett B 94 Norwich B 66: G Morgan 15, A Larter 14, P Delaiche 13, L Webster 13, D Machin 11, O Wells 10, G Larter 9, L Hulcoop 9.

Morgam’s performance was even more significant given that he had been racing in Glasgow the previous day in an Eurovets round where he did well to score 13 points to earn a place in the Over-50s B final. He was well pleased with a second place there after drawing the unfavourable outside starting position.

There were successes too in the midweek final Norfolk GO-RIDE round at Harford Park. George Larter (Under-10s) Owen Wells (Under-16) and Harley Hamill (Senior) were winners on the night and stepping onto the podium for the series were George Larter (Under-10s, first), Owen Wells, Paul Delaiche and Ayrin Larter (top three in Under-16s) and Owen Wells and Leigh Cossey (second and third in the seniors).

On Saturday Owen Wells will race in Sheffield in the final round of the British Junior Grand Prix and the Hawks have an exciting new challenge on Sunday contesting the British KO Cup Regional Play-off at Ipswich (2pm).

Cricket: Stradbroke Vikings (133-8) lost to Eye & District (137-6) in Two Counties Division 9E.

As expected, division winners Eye duly beat Stradbroke, but this turned out to be more than an end of season fixture.

Chasing 133 looked a cake walk, despite a defiant 47 from Josh Franklin-Mann. The icing on the cake came from Jordan Warren (34) while 16-year-old Evan Read chose the day to fulfil so much of his promise, taking a career best three for 34, forcing Harry Wyke-Sneed (34) and Alistair Bennett (31) to regroup. The pair added 66 as Franklin-Mann (3-29) started to spin the ball, leaving the Vikings to rue an inadequate target.
