HETHERSETT & Tas Valley CC had a successful start to its league campaigns with two wins and a draw.
On Sunday, the club has a prestigious Carter Cup first round tie at home to North Runcton (Flordon, 11am). They will be hoping to emulate last season's success when they made it through to the second round before narrowly losing to Sheringham.
The first team opened its Norfolk Alliance Division Three campaign with what looked to be a tricky match at Horsford II.
They made short work of the opposition, however, winning by four wickets with almost five overs to spare.
