Hethersett and Tas Valley will look to become six hitters when they visit Old Buckenham for a local derby this weekend.

Hethersett continued their five-star service with their fifth consecutive win in Division One of the Norfolk League, beating a strong Acle side by 11 runs.

Acle won the toss and put Hethersett into bat and opener Richard Ellis fell cheaply for just eight. A feature of the current Hethersett side is its strength in depth with Carl Puttock hitting 43 and Matthew Ellis 59.

Simon Redhead then put the Acle attack to the sword with seven fours and three sixes in a blistering 68. Hethersett finished on 210-6 from their 45 overs.

Acle's reply fell 11 runs short of the target, ending on 199-6 from their 45 overs with two batsmen being run out as they fell behind the run chase. Matt Ellis capped a fine all-round performance with 2-36 and Matt Steward 2-65.

w Hethersett Seconds went on a run rampage in their home Norfolk League Division Five game against Happisburgh with Stephen Hayes hitting an unbeaten 104 in their 226-2 from 45 overs. Hayes' innings included 14 fours and two sixes.

He was well supported by Rob Mitchell (45), Tony Wenham (18) and Tristan Hunt (28no). Hethersett then restricted Happisburgh to 142-6. This Saturday the seconds are home to Aylsham St Giles.

Hethersett Thirds made it a hat-trick of league wins for the club when they beat Old Catton by 73 runs in Division 10.

Hethersett scored 150 all out in 42.4 overs with Sam Smith hitting 42, Tom Brandon Street 38 and Miles Kemp 22. Old Catton were bowled out for 77 with Alex Reeder taking 4-13, Joe Brett 2-14 and Jonathan Bunn 2-8. This week the Thirds visit Norwich Union Thirds.

Hethersett lost by seven wickets to Vauxhall Mallards in the Mid Norfolk Sunday League Division One.

Hethersett batted first and scored 171-7 from 40 overs with solid contributions from Richard Ellis (22), Nick Burrett (38) and Dave Cosford (32). Mallards reached their target for the loss of just three wickets and with over 13 overs remaining. This Sunday the team visits Fakenham.

Hethersett breezed through the first round of the Kimberley 20/20 cup with a massive 101-run victory over Wicklewood.

Hethersett won the toss and decided to bat and hit 150-8 in their 20 overs at well over a run a ball. Lee King top scored with an unbeaten 35 and Tristan Hunt weighed in with 30.

Hethersett's bowlers were on form as they humbled Wicklewood to 49 all out.

Lee King finished a fine all-round match with 4-12 and two wickets each for Geoff Chappell and Phil Walmsley.

It is almost becoming an annual tradition for Hethersett's May tour of Nottinghamshire to end in a washout.

Games against Hucknall and Colston Bassett were wiped out by rain, but the team did manage a 15-run victory over Kinoulton. Simon Redhead hit 52no and Asad Abbas took 5-88.

Hethersett will be holding its first-ever U16 20/20 tournament at Flordon on Sunday (11.30am start). Teams taking part will be Garboldisham, Brooke, Rocklands and Hethersett.
